You can now download a development version of Potlatch 3.0 to run on your desktop.
At https://www.systemed.net/potlatch/download/ , you can download a Mac native app, or an AIR file for use on Windows or (possibly) Linux.
Potlatch 3.0 includes desktop-editing features such as Remote Control support, overview zoom levels, and an OAuth login flow for saving. Rendering is faster and there’s now Overpass API support in the tasks palette.
Installation on Linux is likely to be complex and I’d welcome reports from anyone who has successfully achieved it.
There’s much more to come in future weeks so watch this space. You can report issues at http://github.com/systemed/potlatch2/issues pending the creation of a dedicated 3.0 repository.
