Maps [0] and Semantic Maps [1] 0.6.3 are now available for download [2].
This release is one aimed to improve stability and addresses a number of
bugs that where present in 0.6.x. Some notable fixed issues are a failure of
parsing any coordinates containing a degree symbol that surfaced in 0.6.2,
and the failing of non-Google Maps form inputs. Some internal rewriting has
also been done, which was needed to address some of these bugs, and will
enable future awesomeness increase. The included OpenLayers library has also
been upgraded to 2.9.1. (changes to Maps [3], changes to SM [4]). People
running any 0.6.x are advised to upgrade. Especially people using Semantic
Maps in conjunction with Semantic Forms [5], as both 0.6 and 0.6.1 contain
undesired behaviour in the forms.

A new release of Semantic Bundle [6], which will include these versions of
the mapping extensions, is likely to soon be released as well :)

You can also read the release notes on my blog [7] and on the documentation
site [8].
