    This year looks like it's going to be an important milestone for SilverStripe. For not only does it mark the 10th anniversary of the company that brought us the CMS, SilverStripe Limited, but it's also the year in which work has begun on the first major release of the system since it's launch in 2007.

I followed the instructions given in the Leaflet quick start guide (http://leafletjs.com/examples/quick-start.html), with a few adaptations to Silverstripe CMS. No custom icon, no additional layer, no customized css, no fancy feature : only the basic options to plot several locations on an interactive map.
