Label files have changed names

The current UI labels files should not be modified by customers.

Prior to upgrade, customers should

  • back up their custom and translated UI label files
  • copy their label files to the format lang_xx_XX_custom.json
  • update their files based on any changes to the lang_en_US_labels.json file and the API error messages files.

Google Maps JavaScript API version updated to version 3

Abiquo uses Google Maps for the map display, which requires the server to have Internet access. From Abiquo 3.2.2 onwards, the map view is optional and statistics can be shown instead. In new installations, the map view is the default for Infrastructure view. In upgraded installations, to enable the map view, set the appropriate property in the client-config.json file.

From 3.0 onwards, Abiquo uses the Google Maps Javascript API v3 to plot the datacenter locations on the map. Abiquo 2.0 used API v2, so you cannot use an old key with Abiquo 3.0. You should obtain a new key for Abiquo 3.0 onwards. However, the API will function without a key up to a certain number of requests.

From Abiquo 3.2.2 onwards, the Google maps API key should be added to the client-config.json file as described below.
