New function: MapFlight_Beta


We rolled our MapFlight_Beta this afternoon.

You call it with three arguments – ident, mapHeight, and MapWidth. It returns a GIF based on your dimensions of the most recent flight for that ident.

We’ll roll out a a production version of the function once there are enough people using it and we have sufficient feedback. Future versions will support toggling nexrad weather, zoom options, and other things you folks can think of. MapFlight_Beta will be a free function until we have a production equivalent – hopefully in the next week.

This incorporates a WSDL change that doesn’t break backwards compatibility. However, if you cache the WSDL or generate a stub file from the WSDL, you’ll need to download & re-generate to use the new function.
