So, here's what's happening with this upgrade:
- The Fire Eagle interface will be officially retired. I haven't seen any evidence that Yahoo! is actively supporting Fire Eagle as they have in the past. Because of this and given the miniscule number of Fire Eagle devices in SpotWalla, I've decided to disable the interface.
- You will be able to import location data in GPX format to any SpotWalla device.
- SpotWalla will calculate speed data for all locations. Speeds are calculated in Miles per Hour, Kilometers per Hour and Knots. Since the speed data doesn't originate from the device, the calculated speed is just an approximation and should not be considered accurate. However, it can be used to demonstrate movement to those watching your trips. You can choose to share speed data with others on a trip by trip basis. By default, speed data is not shared with others.
- The database has grown a great deal over the past year alone. The upgrade will apply some optimizations and restructure certain tables in order to ensure SpotWalla remains highly optimized and has the capacity to grow in the future.
