OpenStreetMap Carto release v4.1.0

Posted by kocio on 30 July 2017 in English (English)

Dear all,

Today, v4.1.0 of the openstreetmap-carto stylesheet (the default stylesheet on openstreetmap.org) has been released and rolled out to the openstreetmap.org servers. It might take a couple of days before all tiles show the new rendering.

Changes include

  • Malls are no longer rendered as dots (bug fix)
  • Special icon for shop=tyres
  • Airports rendering changes: removing clutter on z10 and moving name labels under the icon
  • Switching forest, scrub and quarry patterns to SVG

In this release we're also introducing Docker-based development environment, which makes it much easier to preview rendering changes before they are deployed on the servers.

Be warned that there's a change in our release plans: compatibility with v3.x series is no longer maintained from now on, so database reload is needed to keep up with current style changes. Some of them can be however backported, especially if you're using hstore-enabled database already.

Thanks to all the contributors for this release. Special thanks go to MaestroGlanz and daganzdaanda for a new icon.

As always, we welcome any bug reports at https://github.com/gravitystorm/openstreetmap-carto/issues.
