This week: seven new add-ons.
This past week we've been slammed with client work, so there hasn't been a ton of work on devot:ee. We're currently trying to fill two positions here so that we can ensure we have enough resources to work on devot:ee every single day. That said, developers have been busy with new add-ons (including us, who built Link Vault Zipper for a couple client projects, and we released it today as a free companion extension to Link Vault).
This Week in Add-ons
Link Vault Zipper (for EE2) by Masuga Design
The Link Vault Zipper extension is a companion add-on to the Link Vault module. It allows you to zip multiple files on the fly for a user to download using Link Vault's regular template tags. The zipped files are tracked individually in the download log as if the user downloaded multiple files separately.

Geocode look up of Latitude and Longitude using Googles Geocode service for the CP. The fieldtype has 3 fields: one is editable for the address and the other two show the returned co-ordinates. All three fields or the combined co-ordinate is available. There's also a little map preview of the returned co-ordinates so the user can check if Google has found the right place!
