[mapguide-users] Fusion javascript (phpviewersample)

Fusion 2.0 beta is reasonably stable for most the functionality that was 
in the 1.1 series of releases.  The biggest change is that a <MapGroup> 
element now allows multiple  <Map> elements which can be of any layer 
type supported by OpenLayers, and this is the part that needs more 
testing.  We will be documenting how to configure that section soon, but 
the MapGuide standard template includes examples of including WMS and 
Google layers.

It also uses a new version of Jx based on MooTools rather than the old 
Prototype version but most of the differences there will be in the CSS 
for the application.  Fusion 2.0 also switches to using OpenLayers 
vector rendering in place of the excanvas implementation, and I haven't 
seen any showstopper bugs because of that change yet.
