Google Maps v3 marker.set_map deprecated

I noticed that new selections weren’t actually loading earthquakes, and I decided to wait until today to see what was going on. After stepping through the code a few times, I found that the function


is now deprecated. It has been deprecated and replaced by


It’s a little annoying that the API has deprecated a function in the same version that I was using for the quake tracker.
