A few hours ago, Google Maps received an update to 5.3.1 which we gladly accepted.  What exactly did the update do though?  We have no idea.  A “Recent changes” section has yet to appear, and on initial open after updating, a new welcome screen is no where to be found.  We had been holding off on writing something up with hopes that a changelog would appear by now, but we’re still sitting here without one.  As soon as we find out what has changed, we’ll be sure to let you know.  Until then, grab the update in the market.

Update:  Thanks to tipster Jeff, we now have a changelog:

Update! We’ve pushed out a new release, version 5.3.1. This version should fix the Manage My Places and auto-checkins issues you’ve been reporting in this thread and elsewhere in the Forum.

Please head to Android Market to download version 5.3.1, and, as always, let us know what you think!


Cheers everyone!
