Geolocation blocked

I tried to create a button to trigger Geolocation API, but at least in Chrome it failed.

Geolocation access has been blocked because of a Feature Policy applied to the current document. See https://goo.gl/EuHzyv for more details.

Indeed the iframe in Observable page has no allow="geolocation" as suggested in the linked note.

Please, see this example. I’m using Chome 64.0.3282.119 (Build) built on Debian 9.3, running on Debian buster/sid (a 64 bit).

Hi Alessio,

This took a little while, but is fixed in our latest update - check out the example in the changelog from yesterday for a cell that gets a user’s position. (as long as they explicitly Allow it through their browser, of course)
