 QGIS web client now offers a theme switcher. There is a new "map 
 themes" button on the top-left, above the layer tree. Users can filter 
 available maps by topic, title or keywords/tags. Projects are stored in 
 json-format in site/js/GISProjectListing.js - a template is provided. 
 You also need to create thumbnails for the theme topics.

 You can see the new theme switcher at http://gis.uster.ch/

 We updated the documentation to explain the data format of 

 Please note that there are a number of new variables in 
 site/js/GlobalOptions.js - many of these variables are required - please 
 update from the template files.

 Please also note that the newest QGIS map client uses a new QGIS server 
 command called "GetProjectSettings" - which is an extension of the 
 "GetCapabilities" command. So please upgrade QGIS server along with QGIS 
 web client. If you can't upgrade QGIS server, there is now an option 
 where you can force QGIS web client to use "GetCapabilities" instead of 
 "GetProjectSettings". Over time this will disappear.


 There are now also license headers in the js files and a more complete 
 license and contributors in the README.


 Thanks to all contributors (esp. Mathias Walker and Bernhard Ströbl) 
 and translators.
