This release includes two major enhancements. The first is Leopard Support. Our ability to test on Leopard has been limited, so not all features may work correctly at first. Please report your experiences in the MacCaching Forums (registering not required.)

The second new feature is CacheMaps! Click the “Show Maps” button to see a cache on a Google Map. Automatically the 5 closest caches will also be displayed. Click on a CacheFlag to get details about that cache! If you have ideas for other enhancements to CacheMaps, feel free to post them in the Enhancement Forum.

Change in the forums

Just a quick note that the MacCaching forums no longer require registration for posting. We’ve installed a new spam filter which appears to be working pretty well. A little bit of spam will slip through but less than before. I think it is a good tradeoff for making it easier to communicate with the Team MacCaching community.

Quest For the IceFox

McClelland & Stewart, book publisher, has incorporated Facebook, Google Maps, and Geocaching in a contest to help launch a new book title: The Frozen Thames by Helen Humphreys. “[The book] is a series of stories about life in historical London and the river Thames that ebbs, flows and freezes throughout its history. The Quest for the Ice Fox contest intends to pull readers virtually down to the river and into that tarnished, talented knot of humanity.”

The first clue will hit Facebook on October 15th via the Ice Fox group. The object is to find the location of the Ice Fox, using Google Maps. There will be a total of eight clues each released at 5am ET on Mondays. The first person to find/post the location of the IceFox will win a $2,000 travel voucher.
