Google Maps API Update; GZoom

Revision 2.59 of the Google Maps API adds four new features, including speed improvements, custom cursors, and an accuracy attribute for the geocoder, the Google Maps API Official Blog reports.

Meanwhile, Andre Louis writes to tell us about his project, GZoom, a third-party add-on that “lets you zoom in on a region of a map by drawing a box around it.” It works, and adding it to your mashup does not look complicated.
