Vespucci 0.9.9 beta released

Posted by SimonPoole on 4 April 2017 in English (English)

Now despite the difficulties of garnering attention when your app doesn’t break things, Vespucci development has carried on and I’m pleased to announce that the first “official” beta release of 0.9.9 is available from googles play store and from our [github repository] (

While there are quite a few user visible changes, most of the work since the release of 0.9.8 has been under the hood, improving the maintainability, testing, documentation and code quality throughout the app, making it much easier to contribute to its development.

It should however be noted that Vespucci has a relatively large code base and contributing to the code (but not to the documentation, presets and other aspects of the app) remains fairly complex. See vespucci on OpenHub for more on that.

The release notes give an overview of what has changed, here just some highlights:

filter selection

preset filter in action

  • way improvement handle use now follows the same pattern as iD
  • javascript based scripting

And where is the elusive openinghours editor? I’ve [resumed work on it] ( and there is a reasonable chance that it will be included in the 0.9.9 release even though there is still a fair bit of work to do.

Good job, folks! Don’t forget to push your Vespucci releases to F-Droid as well :)

0.9.9 has been released now. Note that we don’t/can’t “push” release to F-Droid and have no control over what they are offering. They have been listing 0.9.9 for a while, without pointing out that it is a beta release though.
