Today, v4.25.0 of the OpenStreetMap Carto stylesheet (the default
stylesheet on the Openstreetmap website) has been released. Once changes are deployed
on openstreetmap.org it will take couple of days before all tiles
show the new rendering.
Remove rendering of barrier=embankment (#4010)
Embankments are now commonly tagged with man_made=embankment or man_made=dyke
Remove rendering of barrier=kerb (#3969)
This feature is not similar to common barriers (fences and walls)
Remove boundary=protected_area fill color at low zoom levels (#3887)
Also changes protected area line and text to new @protected-area
Remove polygon fill rendering for barrier=hedge areas (#3844)
This makes the rendering consistent between walls and hedges as areas
Remove operator text label for most amenity=vending_machine (#3965)
Operator= label is still rendered for vending=public_transport_tickets
Add svg icon for parking=multi-storey + amenity=parking_entrance (#3599)
Fix syntax of font list and enable Armenian font (#3989)
Use ST_PointOnSurface for junctions (#3933)
These PRs complete the switch to ST_PointOnSurface for labeling all polygon features with text labels, which was began a year ago.
Thanks to all the contributors for this release, including @Sjord (Sjoerd Langkemper), a new contributor.

Thank you for all the hard work. I am sure it’s hard to please everyone, and I think it’s good that barrier=kerb is not rendering the same as walls and fences, but I do think it’s useful to have it render. At some point I think we are going to need to map roads as areas, like we do with riverbank for rivers. I think mapping barrier=kerb is a good transition. At present it can give an idea of the with of roads, the existence of traffic islands, ease transition from manmade=bridge to the road mapped as a way, and probably more. In the future the traces could play a dual role of making the curb, and the extent of the roadway as an area.
It seems like having it render as a lighter grey line would keep it distinct from fences and walls, but keep this useful feature on the visual representation of our data.
