OpenStreetMap Carto (the default stylesheet on the Openstreetmap.org website) has
released version v4.23.0 today.
Combine low priority layers using ST_PointOnSurface (#3874)
Fixes a bug which rendered parking icons twice
Restore rendering of landcover text labels on points (#3878)
For the past several months nodes with tags like leisure=sports_centre lacked a text label
Adjust aerodrome initial & final zoom levels (#3879)
Aerodrome name labels now start rendering at a later zoom level, and continue rendering to higher zoom levels unless the area is too large
Adjust width of hedge & citywall up to z20, adjust hedge color (#3847)
Minor changes to make barrier line widths more consistent
Increase office= initial zoom to z18 and move some values to z19 (#3896)
No longer renders “office=*” at z17, undocumented values are shown at z19
Create new layer for ref of highway=residential/unclassified/track (#3709)
Changes ref to standard halo-radius, oblique font, and same size as name at >z17. This renders the “ref” number at lower priority than the names of these minor roads
Add fill colors for wetland=mangrove/saltmarsh/reedbed (#3807)
Also adds salt dots pattern for wetland=saltmarsh
Once changes are deployed on openstreetmap.org it will take couple of days before all tiles show the new rendering.

We welcome any bug reports at
We welcome new contributors who might be interested in solving one of the many open issues. See a list of [relatively easy first issues](https://github.com/gravitystorm/openstreetmap-carto/issues?q=is%3Aissue+is%3Aopen+label%3A%22good+first+issue%22_.
It’s not necessary to have coding or cartography experience (though this will make it easier): I started contributing about a year ago without any prior coding experience.
Contributors with experience in CartoCSS and cartography may be interested in the list of more challenging issues that need help
