worldKit 2.1 update
Several new features released today, one month on from last month's major update.
There's now support for displaying GPS tracklogs in GPX format.
Click and drag for panning: The <grabber> config option enables intuitive gmaps style panning.
Zoom to annotation: The <zoomto> config enables zooming when an annotation is clicked, rather than opening a new url.
The alpha levels of lines and polygons can be set with <linealpha> and <fillalpha>
Annotation text can be displayed at the top of the map with <singltextfield>.
In image loading dialogs, the number of images left to load is specified. Also more fonts have been specified in text annotations, for some linux systems with limited fonts installed.
Bug fixes and other minor updates
The "daynight" displaytype now works correctly for any north/south/east/west extent.
If confurl is set to NULL in dynamic options, no config file is requested. Same goes for <dataurl>.

It's now been documented that certain variations of RSS geocoding are permitted (though it's still recommended to use the geo namespace). This includes the new "geourl" namespace used in geourl RSS feeds.
