Christmas features - as they are temporary - should be checked and updated every year. The christmas map in OpenStreetBrowser now shows outdated features with a red marker and a note in the popup.
There's a new category "Swimming and Bathing" (under "Leisure, Sport and Shopping"). It includes a variety of swimming and bathing facilities:
With the newest update, OpenStreetBrowser supports drawing patterns (e.g. arrow heads) on ways, which is from now on used on the cycle routes map and the public transport map. Cycle routes map gets the directions from the way's role (forward/backward), public transport map from the connection to the previous/next way (as defined in PT Schema v2).
OpenStreetBrowser's main categories got a few improvements:
Before starting my project OpenStreetBrowser (which was a long time ago in autumn of 2008) I just wanted to create a public transport map (short: PT map). Creating a PT map is really difficult and creating a usable map is even more difficult. There are several reasons for this, including that OpenStreetMap itself adds a lot of complexity. But it is possible. Back then, my efforts resulted in OpenStreetBrowser 1, but the PT map code didn't last long.
Having all these categories in OpenStreetBrowser is a great thing. But creating these categories has been a work mostly done by me and I can't really guess which categories would be interesting to you. That's why I want other people (especially You!) to have the ability to create or improve categories yourself. That's why there's now a "More categories" link in OpenStreetBrowser, where you can access categories which other people (or You!) created or modified.
