We are pleased to announce the release of Cesium 1.14. Highlights include:

  • Provided a workaround for Safari 9 where WebGL constants can’t be accessed through WebGLRenderingContext.
  • Added a workaround for Chrome 45, where the first character in a label with a small font size would not appear. #3011
  • Fixed issues causing the terrain and sky to disappear when the camera is near the surface.
  • Changed the ScreenSpaceCameraController.minimumZoomDistance default from 20.0 to 1.0.
  • Added Billboard.sizeInMeters. true sets the billboard size to be measured in meters; otherwise, the size of the billboard is measured in pixels. Also added support for billboard sizeInMeters to entities and CZML.
  • Fixed a bug in AssociativeArray that would cause unbounded memory growth when adding and removing lots of items.

For more details and the full list of changes, see the change log.
