Faster Map Rendering, Smarter Initialization



This release brings performance and cost optimization improvements to your map embeds. By leveraging progressive rendering available in the latest Mapbox SDK, your maps will benefit from ~30% faster load times, resulting in less latency and a lower probability of bounce for your visitors. 

Additionally, our maps now intelligently render themselves only when your embed becomes visible to your user. If your embed requires some scrolling to get to, it will wait for your visitor to scroll to its position before initializing. Less unnecessary loads mean better overall page performance and a smoother browsing experience for your users.

No changes are necessary on your part as these updates are automatically pushed out to any active embeds you have deployed. We hope you enjoy the snappier experience!
