Now you can help your friends by translating IITC into your language!
Go to the service https://weblate.iitc.app, there you can already localize the interface IITC Mobile and IITC Button.
And, yes, the domain of IITC-CE website has now been changed to a simple https://iitc.app
​​I Love Free Software Day

The I Love Free Software Day was initiated by the Free Software Foundation Europe to thank all free software developers. As IITC is open source as well, lots of developers around the world have contributed to our project. We'd like to thank everyone who contributed: You help us build an even better IITC every day. If you are interested in helping us as well, please check our GitHub repository.

We also invite you to record a short video (no longer than a minute) about why you use IITC-CE and how this tool helps you when playing Ingress (or even Pokemon Go).
It would be great if it was recorded in the background of your local landmark and in your native language (but then please duplicate the text in English).

Please send your videos to our telegram chat.
​​The new addition of Drones to Ingress has brought a fun new way to explore the Portal Network from home. With this new feature came the need to have a tool to help plan routes. This prompted agent @tehstone to create the 'Ingress Drone Path' IITC plugin which provides a variety of map overlays to assist in planning Drone routes.

This plugin draws a 500 meter circle around the selected portal and draws all Level 16 S2 grid cells through which that circle passes. All portals within these cells are highlighted. Additionally the plugin highlights portals that would be a one-way jump from the selected portal.

Additional tools to create and save routes are planned.

You can download this plugin from the GitHub repository.
For IITC Button users: If you were among those who received the wrong update, you may have experienced the disabling of all plugins and the inability to enable them. Unfortunately, the update was not tested enough to work with old user data.

Please don't worry and don't delete the extension: all your data is safe.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to go back to the previous version, but the corrected update will be published within a few days.

From the main, the new version of IITC Button integrates standard IITC-CE plugins and your third-party plugins, so you will like the update =)

UP: Fixed version is already available in Firefox Add-ons and Chrome Web Store.
While we are working on getting out a new release of IITC-CE, the intel is now showing new ornaments for Volatile Scout Controller Portals (VSCPs) (see @NianticOfficial for details).

IITC-CE (V0.30.1) and IITCm fail to load and show portals properly, if ornaments are turned "off" (the default is "on").

Workaround 1: leave ornaments active.
Workaround 2: use the testing builds on IITC.APP, these already have the needed fixes.

Stay tuned for the upcomming updates.
Great news! We have Beta channel in Google Play now!
Every change merged into master comes to beta (with some delay needed for Google approving).
Current master already has very important fixes, so it is highly recommended to join Beta!

Note: Beta is not the same as test-builds, it is much more stable

iitc.app site provides Beta app directly, it is also available in archive (it is possible to install it over release, all the data will be preserved)

IITC Buttons users: you can switch to Beta channel in Settings!

A new release is coming and you can greatly help us complete the translation into your native language on our translation platform.
On the first day of new year, we present you big update of IITC-CE, containing many accumulated improvements and fixes.

Thanks to community for their help with translating IITC-CE components on our translation platform.

#release
Usually in this channel we don't publish news about IITC Button update. But today I want to tell you about a rather useful plugin Ultimate Mission Maker, support for which has been implemented in new IITC Button v1.7.0.

Ultimate Mission Maker (UMM) is a plugin designed to simplify mission submission process in banners. The UMM allows you to set banner parameters (such as name, description, etc.) directly in IITC, draw a path for missions, and then export to Niantic's mission authoring tool.

Why didn't this plugin work with IITC Button before v1.7.0 update? Due to the fact that Intel map address was changing, some old unupdated plugins are restricted to work only with old Intel map address. So, before IITC Button v1.7.0 update, all plugins for Ingress were forced to run on new address, regardless of which address the plugins were meant for. However, this solution has disadvantages: UMM plugin can not run on https://missions.ingress.com/, and some .user.js files that are not plugins for IITC, on the contrary, are forced to run.
IITC Button now adds a value parser @match/@include, which determines whether plugin is intended for Ingress and also IITC or a mission authoring tool.

Let me remind you, IITC Button (get it on Firefox Add-ons and Chrome Web Store) is a simple extension for players, allowing you to get IITC in your browser without proper skills and easily enable the necessary plugins. But if you're an experienced developer, you'll probably like Tampermonkey/Greasemonkey/Violentmonkey.
As for plugin support, IITC Button currently has almost all the features that third-party plugins could use, but if your plugin works in *monkey but doesn't work in IITC Button, feel free to open the issue.
