GNOME Maps Updated for GNOME 3.16 with Improved Geocode Functionality

GNOME Maps 3.16 Beta 2 fixes a leak in geocode functionality of the libmaps library, and addresses event handling issues with GTK+ and Clutter libraries, which could lead to freeze and deadlock when the user clicked the map. Moreover, we can mention that routes are no longer fetched twice for each request in GNOME Maps 3.16 Beta 2, and the software will now allow users to add contacts that properly geocode to a location. Users will also be able to mark search results as favorites.
