IITC is moving to a new website! You can find the latest news and versions at iitc.me.
It's early in the migration process, so if you find any problems on the new site, please report them in the IITC Community.
IITC 0.25.0 has been released. This is a critical update to fix things after a Niantic site update.
Other changes include
IITC 0.25.1 released. This fixes search not working after MapQuest made a change to their API.
IITC 0.24.0 has been released. This is a critical update needed to fix the map not loading any data.
NOTE: Niantic have removed portals from the map data at all but the closest of zoom levels (L1+ - zoom 15+). The stock intel site creates dummy placeholder portals at the anchors for links, allowing you to click and open the portal details. However, IITC does not do this yet. It will take some time to modify IITC and the plugins to allow for such placeholder portals, so making a first release without them.
IITC 0.23.0 has been released. This is a critical update needed to fix IITC after a Niantic site update.
IITC 0.22.3 has been released. Changes include
IITC 0.22.2 has been released. This is a critical update needed to fix portal loading at some zoom levels.
IITC 0.22.1 has been released. This is a critical update needed to fix COMM after a recent Niantic site update.
IITC 0.22.0 has been released. This is a critical update needed to fix loading of portal details after the recent Niantic site update.
Major update to IITC's search system. Multiple search results are listed and specific results selected. Visible portals are also searched, numerical lat/lng search added, and some plugins also integrate with the new search feature: player-tracker (player name search), regions (region name search), bookmarks,
...plus other minor bug fixes and optimisations.
IITC 0.21.2 has been released. This is a simple bugfix over the 0.21.1 release, where for some users IITC would crash at startup, being stuck on 'loading'
IITC 0.21.1 has just been released. This is (yet another) critical update required to work with internal changes to the stock intel site.
IITC 0.21.0 has just been released. This is a critical update needed to fix things after a Niantic site update.
Also, a few bug fixes are included since the previous release, but no major updates.
IITC 0.20.1 has been released. This is an important release that changes how the COMM tabs work, to avoid IITC making excessive requests in some cases, possibly leading to intel bans.
This has, unfortunately, required the removal of the full/compact/public COMM tabs, instead IITC has an 'all' tab, just like the standard intel site. Also, the 'alerts' tab from the standard site has been added to IITC. See this post for details about why this was needed.
Also, other various tweaks and bugfixes.
I'm sure many people will miss the public COMM tab. The best way for this to return is for Niantic to change the COMM tabs of the standard intel site, so it's supported server-side. My suggestion for Niantic is to remove the 'all' tab, instead having:
These changes should also be made to the app as well as the intel site.
IITC 0.20.0 released. This is a critical update to fix loading of portals/links/fields after a protocol change by Niantic.
Other changes include
IITC 0.19.0 / IITC Mobile 0.19.0 released.
IITC 0.18.3 / IITC Mobile 0.11.9 released.
This is a critical update, required to fix IITC after a change to the standard intel site. No other significant changes have been made.
IITC 0.18.2 / IITC Mobile 0.11.8 released.
While previous release continue to work in most situations, this IITC update is highly recommended. After seeing recent changes to the stock intel map I've had a rethink about how IITC handles loading and optimising requests, particularly when it comes to viewing country-wide regions and above. It made me realise that fewer requests sent may not actually mean it's friendlier to the servers, so IITC has been updated to match the standard intel site in the number of, and batching, of requests.
Plus, as always, other minor tweaks and bugfixes.
IITC 0.18.1 and IITC Mobile 0.11.7 have just been released. Changes include
IITC 0.18.0 and IITC Mobile 0.11.6 have just been released. This is an important update required to fix a few problems caused in recent Niantic site updates.
IITC 0.17.5 and IITC Mobile 0.11.5 have just been released. This is a critical update required to work with the latest changes to the standard intel site.
Along with the fixes needed to work with the Niantic changes, the only other change since the previous release is a minor colour scheme change for mods, to match the standard intel site. Rare is now a shade of blue (rather than purple), and very rare is now purple (rather than pink).
IITC 0.17.4 and IITC Mobile 0.11.4 have just been released. Changes include:
IITC 0.17.3 and IITC Mobile 0.11.3 have just been released. Changes include:
IITC 0.17.2 and IITC Mobile 0.11.2 have just been release. This is to fix the display of portal details - in particular, the 'owner' field - after Niantic removed the capture date from the standard site and data.
IITC 0.17.1 and IITC Mobile 0.11.1 have just been released.
Another critical update, due to more changes by Niantic. Hopefully the last one for a while - all recent breaking changes were caused by Niantic removing the obsfucation of data requests one bit at a time - the final piece has been removed now.
Lost bookmarks? Drawn items? In the latest Niantic site update they changed the server to always go to the
https version. It is possible to copy your data to the new location - further details
Additionally, a few bugs were fixed since the previous release, and now most map layers support zooming in closer than before. Note: There can be issues on Chrome when zooming beyond zoom level 18 (the previous default maximum for several maps). Just zoom out again if the zoom/layer controls, or the COMM panel, disappear.
And another IITC update, IITC 0.16.12 and IITC Mobile 0.11.0 have just been released, to fix things after the most recent update to the standard intel site.
Note that Niantich have trimmed down the data a bit more, removing things not used by the standard intel site. In particular, we no longer know the resonator deployment distance, the portal address, and the portal description. Due to this, the 'show-address' and 'draw-resonators' plugins are no longer available.
Yet another cricical IITC Update - IITC 0.16.11 and IITC Mobile 0.10.11 have just been released. This fixes the munge error at startup.
Note: IITC 0.16.10 and IITC Mobile 0.10.10 were available for a few hours. This had a problem loading the portal details.
Another critical IITC update - IITC 0.16.9 and IITC Mobile 0.10.9 have just been released. This fixes the munge error at startup.
Also, the bookmarks plugin received an update. This has had minimal testing, so please report any issues.
IITC 0.16.8 and IITC Mobile 0.10.8 have just been released. This is a critical update that is needed for IITC to correctly load the map data.
IITC 0.16.7 and IITC Mobile 0.10.7 have been released, to fix things to work with the latest Niantic changes.
There have also been a few tweaks to improve performance, and an optional alternative rendering mode that might give a good performance boost in some cases when there's lots of portals on screen.
IITC 0.16.6 and IITC Mobile 0.10.6 have just been released. This is a critical update required to successfully load portals when zoomed in (L3+ or closer) to the map. Changes include:
IITC 0.16.5 and IITC Mobile 0.10.5 have just been released. This version is required to work with a change made to the standard intel site. Also, the following changes have been made:
IITC 0.16.4 and IITC Mobile 0.10.4 have just been released. This version is required to fix a bug with showing portal details due to a change made by Niantic to the intel site protocol. Also, the following changes have been made:
A new IITC release, 0.16.2 and IITC Mobile 0.10.2 have been released. These are needed to work with a change to the standard intel site.
Additionally, the 'Compute AP Statistics' plugin has been brought back, the 'blank map' base layer has a new black option to go with the white, and the 'Yandex' base map has had some bug fixes. Also, IITC Mobile features some changes to the 'show my location' feature. You may need to turn this option on again for it to work.
Update 14th January 2014: An updated IITC Mobile, 0.10.3, has been released, to fix a crash issue seen by some. Also, a minor update was made to the main IITC script which changes the order the data is loaded, to match a change made to the standard intel site.
Just in time for the holidays, another IITC update. IITC 0.16.1 and IITC Mobile 0.10.1 have just been released. Changes include
Niantic have just released a minor update to the standard intel site. Good news - recent IITC changes have made it successfully detect the protocol changes in most cases, so no update is needed. You may need to reload the page, and for IITC Mobile you may need to change a cache setting. See this G+ post for more details.
IITC 0.16.0 and IITC Mobile 0.10.0 have been released. This update is required to work with the latest changes to the standard intel site. This update took a fair amount of work due to major changes in the network protocol used behind the standard intel website, hence the longer than usual delay for the update.
As well as IITC itself, nearly every single plugin broke in some way due to these changes. Due to the amount of work needed to get everything possible working again, some plugins have been disabled for now. You can see the list of these disabled plugins in the download list - they're in the 'Deleted' category with a description of 'PLUGIN CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE'.
Shortly after the Niantic changes that broke IITC, there were reports of IITC users being banned. This seemed strange at first, as IITC was not even functioning at this time, so why would people be using it and getting banned. The conclusion that was reached was that a few people who tried to use the broken IITC Mobile app triggered either a bug in IITC that caused excessive requests, or triggered some kind of alert in the intel servers. Changes have been made to IITC now so this unlikely to be an issue again.
IITC and IITC Mobile are currently broken, due to changes made to the standard intel website. This is a major change in how portal details are sent, with most of the extra data that the standard site didn't use being removed.
This is not something simple to fix, and will take some time. Also, it severely cripples what IITC can do, as using this extra data, not displayed by the standard site, was it' big feature.
We will look into what can be done to get it working again, but it will take some time. Many plugins won't be practical as the data will not be available.
More details, and discussion, available in the Google+ post.
Update I've created a 'dummy' version of the desktop plugin that will, for now, disable IITC if you leave it installed. This is shown as version 0.15.99. When a fixed build is released, it will be 0.16.something and will update and start working. Test versions remain, but broken. Please join the Google+ Community where announcements will be made.
IITC 0.15.0 and IITC Mobile 0.9 have just been released. This update fixes things to work with the latest changes to the standard intel site. Also
IITC 0.14.6 and IITC Mobile 0.7.7.2 released. Another change needed to match a minor update to the standard intel site.
IITC 0.14.5 and IITC Mobile 0.7.7.1 have been released. This contains a fix to work with the latest intel site updates. Other than this, it is identical to the 0.14.4/0.7.7 release.
IITC 0.14.4 and IITC Mobile 0.7.7 have just been released. A critical update required to work with changes made to the standard intel site. Changes include
3RD PARTY PLUGIN AUTHORS: The plugin wrapper code has been modified to pass through the additional version information. While existing plugins should continue to work, I highly recommend updating the wrapper code in your scripts to match.
IITC 0.14.3 and IITC Mobile 0.7.4 have just been released. This is a critical update required to work with the latest changes Niantic have made to the standard intel site. Additionally, the draw-tools plugin now snaps points to portals when creating lines/polygons/markers (was actually in 0.14.2 release), a bugfix relating to IITC not realising who 'you' are, causing some highlighters to break, and a handful of other tweaks/bugfixes.
IITC 0.14.2 and IITC Mobile 0.7.1 have been released. This is a critical update required to work with changes made to the standard intel site. Additionally, a major update to the mobile app interface has been made, and a handful of tweaks and bugfixes to IITC and a few plugins.
The standard intel site now includes an 'alerts' chat tab. This will be coming to IITC in the future, but it's better to get this working version released without it than hold things up just for that.
Update: IITC Mobile 0.6.5 replaces 0.6.4. This fixes a crash on entering plugin preferences on some tablets.
IITC 0.14.1 and IITC Mobile 0.6.4 have been released. Changes in this version include:
IITC 0.14.0, and IITC Mobile 0.5.6, have just been released. This is (yet another) change required to work with the latest changes to the standard intel website.
Also, as part of some long-term improvements, the data loading and portal rendering code has been completely rewritten. This should ensure much more reliable loading of portal data, and faster rendering when lots of portals are shown. However, this code is new, and may have bugs. Some known issues are:
Yet another critical IITC update, 0.13.4, and IITC Mobile 0.5.5, have been released. A few things in this build
IITC 0.13.3 and IITC Mobile 0.5.4.2 have been released. This is another critical update required to work with another change Niantic have made to the standard intel site.
IITC 0.13.2 and IITC Mobile 0.5.4.1 have been released. This is a critical release required to work with changes Niantic have made to the standard intel site. The ap-list and show-linked-portals plugins also needed minor changes related to this.
A bugfix IITC release 0.13.1, and IITC Mobile 0.5.4 has just been released.
Important IITC release 0.13.0, to fix enlightened from showing up as the wrong colour (in some places as neutral - orange/white, in others the same colour as resistance). Also includes the following changes
IITC now has a Google+ Community. This is a great place to ask questions and discuss IITC with other users.
IITC version 0.12.2 released, and IITC Mobile 0.4.8.
IITC version 0.12.1 released, and IITC Mobile 0.4.6. Changes include:
IITC version 0.12.0 has been released. This contains quite a few changes and new features, including
IITC version 0.11.3 has been released. This should vastly reduce the chance of getting REQUEST_FAILED errors while scrolling/zooming the map frequently. The passcode redemption code has been updated, and there are improvements to the URL link handling. The portals-list plugin has been updated, and bug fixes made to the player tracker. A new plugin to show portal levels as numbers has been added too.
IITC Mobile 0.3.2 is also available. Along with the above, this includes a new option to show your current position on the map.
New website launched! A major revamp of the website has been made. Thanks to the various users who contributed logos and site templates.
IITC 0.11.2 released. This has a minor fix relating to portal visibility at different zoom levels. We now have to match the standard intel site. This does, unfortunately, mean you need to zoom even closer to see unclaimed portals. Also, an update to the scoreboard plugin has been released that should make it work again.
IITC 0.11.0 is a critical release that fixes the display of portals on the map. Niantic/Google have changed the way portals are retrieved from the servers and this broke the old IITC. There are reports of some issues with failure to display links/fields in some areas - we're working on it.
Also, IITC Mobile 0.3 has been released. As well as including the above 0.11.0 IITC build, it also contains experimental support for plugins. This is still in the early stages of development - not all plugins work well (or at all) for mobile. Plugins are disabled by default - you need to choose which plugins to enable in the app settings.
Update IITC 0.11.1 has been released. This fixes issues where not all links displayed in some areas, and some bugs in the changed code. An updated IITC Mobile 0.3 includes this new version too.
IITC 0.10.5, an urgent release that (unfortunately) removes the default CloudMade map tiles. This is required because IITC is popular enough to exceed their free quota significantly. Also, IITC Mobile 0.2.8 has been released, with the same change. (0.10.4 was available for a short while, without the MapQuest map layer. This had zoom-related issues on IITC Mobile)
IITC 0.10.3 released. This is a minor update that prevents certain types of system messages from appearing in the faction chat window. No plugin changes. (A 0.10.2 was released a few hours earlier, but this was found to have issues in certain situations).
No fooling - new 0.10.1 IITC released. Changes include improved chat display for "@player" messages, and improvements to the 'poslinks' window. Also, updates to several plugins, including ap-list, player-tracker, portals-list and show-linked-portals. Also, new plugins include keys and keys-on-map (for MANUAL tracking of your keys), portal-counts and privacy-view.
Also, IITC Mobile 0.2.4 is available. This includes the 0.10.1 IITC, plus new settings. One to choose between mobile and desktop versions of the site, and another developer-only option to load IITC from an external web server. This will make it easier for others to work on improving the IITC Mobile experience without knowledge of building Android applications.
IITC Mobile 0.2.3 released. This has new icons, should improve stability, and includes the latest IITC 0.10.0. Users of older versions will have to uninstall before you can install this build. It can be found below in the mobile section.
IITC 0.10.0 released. The major change in this version is that all external resources (icons, external scripts) have now been embedded within the scripts themselves. Several plugins have been updated in the same way. Other plugin updates, and a new plugin, are also included.
