Product Update HERE Platform for Business - HERE Maps API for JavaScript 2.x to be phased out

24 April 2015

Last year we announced the release of the new HERE Maps API for JavaScript 3.0 built to support both enterprise and consumer use cases, while assuring improved performance, processing speed and faster load time. This release is just further evidence of our commitment to continuous innovation through services that support today's customer development environments.

The new HERE Maps API for JavaScript 3.0 provides customers today with important features and capabilities including:

  • Support for a broad range of applications from consumer facing to enterprises
  • Consolidation of all backend capabilities of HERE Platform into one single API
  • Application development across any browser environment
  • Further optimization for mobile browsers
  • Improved performance (leaner size and optimized API code), redesigned using latest browser and hardware technology
  • Improved processing speed and faster load times
  • Feature completeness compared to version 2.5.4

Following this release, we will be phasing out the HERE Maps API for JavaScript 2.x by September 30th, 2015. This means that, after this date, no further maintenance and support will be provided.
