Google recently announced its new Google Maps Platform and with it comes a change in their pricing for their map APIs starting June 11th. Due to this change, we needed to make some adjustments to our API calls. Please update to the new releases (Pano2VR 5.2.4 and 6 beta 3) as we may need to block the old API keys to the maps which may cause the Google Street View export to stop working or be limited in functionality starting in early June.
Adds some optimizations for Google Maps API calls.
