Google Maps now requires a registration and API key when using the service.
DigiKam-5.9.0 does not yet contain this API key. There was a transition
period for older programs that has now expired. DigiKam-6.0.0 is registered
and sends an API key to Google, so it works with this version. We use a
free account and we will see if the maximum allowed map retrieval per day
will be sufficient for all digiKam users worldwide.
