V3 maps always use custom V3 renderer no matter which theme is selected. Change this should be really really complicated, so I would like to stick with this system.

So what I need to know to make (almost) all happy:
- V3 maps always use custom V3 renderer: which themes offer?
- V4 maps always use official latest (currently 0.11.0 version of MF) renderer: which themes offer?

Thanks for patience with me :).

As I wrote above backward compatibilty of the render engine is great, so you can throw any theme or map version at 0.11 (except locus extended), old V1 themes will also be scaled according to dpi etc.

But there's no "forward" compatibilty, so it makes no sense using a render engine 0.3 (locus ext.) with maps higher than V3 and themes higher than V1 (whatever happened to V2 and V3?).

So only the proposal above (using a renderer according to theme version, when V3 maps are used) would work properly.

tested 3.37.2.6 ...crash in theme chooser with vector overlay map still present, see my screenshot here:
https://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=6471.msg54842#msg54842

Therefore, my question again: is it intended that you get to chose the theme you want to change (base or overlay map) if a vector map is overlayed with a vector map?
In current pro, you can only change the theme of the base map and no crash happens.

Locus (alpha) shows a GPS track, although I did not activate track tracking.

Is this new?  Is it possible to deactivate it?

I dicovered that 3.37.2.6 seems not be able to display WMS maps!? Maybe it's just the map I tried, but current pro displays it just fine (although with very tiny text). Is this to be expected in the Alpha or is it a bug?
