As pointed out by AndroidWorld (via Engadget), Google’s latest update to Maps for Android only listed minor performance improvements. However, some report it seems to have introduced a new Foursquare-like global leaderboard integrated into Latitude that ranks Google+ users based on points earned by checking-in. Many report having to check-in before being able to access the feature, and it does not appear to have rolled out to everyone as of yet. Google has not made any official announcements, but we will keep you posted when we get official word from Google on the new feature.
