- Currently, there is no vector rendering support for the Safari web browser. The next major release of the browser will include SVG support: If you would like support for vectors in Safari, you can download the latest version from Webkit Nightly Builds.
- The MouseDefaults and MouseToolbar controls have been deprecated, in favor of the new Navigation and NavToolbar controls.
- The default controls added to the map changed slightly in 2.4. Instead of the MouseDefaults control, the Navigation control is added to the map instead. These controls provide the same functionality, but different internal APIs. If you were subclassing off of a default control, you can maintain the old behavior by adding the following option to your map constructor:
controls: [ new OpenLayers.Control.MouseDefaults(), new OpenLayers.Control.PanZoom(), new OpenLayers.Control.ArgParser() ]
- The WFS layer is now Untiled. Instead of making many requests, it will only make one, and that single request will by default be for an area twice the size of the viewable map. You can adjust this with a 'ratio' option on the layer.
- If no featureClass is specified as an option to the WFS layer, the layer will by default display using vectors instead of markers.
- Internet Explorer does not have a built in XML Serializer, so it can not save WFS-T payloads to a server via the 'commit' method on a WFS layer.
- Safari's built in XML Serializer does not maintain namespaces, so it can not save WFS-T payloads to a server via the 'commit' method on a WFS layer.
