New development version 2.1-pre3

On http://dev.openstreetbrowser.org a new development version is available. Most changes were only bugfixes, like the icon chooser in the category editor which was next to unusable. But there are also some new features, e.g. a "debug toolbox" (enable it in the Options) which shows the status of the basemap tiles (later there will be more options). There were also updates to the new Translation system, it's now possible to add new tag-values (but not new tags right now) - please do so!

Vandalism on OpenStreetBrowser

Sorry that most main categories were not available for a couple of hours today, but a user had vandalized them (as you can see in the Recent Changes on the developer version). A good reason to code a restore function, which was done in half an hour or so. Finally no harm was done as I could restore the old versions. The restore function will be available in 2.1-pre3. Have fun!

Version 2.1-pre2 available as developer version

1½ weeks passed, many things changed on the developer version, still available on dev.openstreetbrowser.org. I finally managed to implement talk-pages for categories (and later much more), you'll find them in the category info window. You can use WikiCreole markup to post your comments. In 'Recent Changes' (available under the links in the lower left) you can find the history of changes on categories and talk pages.

Preview on version 2.1 (2.1-pre1)

Version 2.1 is coming up soon. You might want to take a look at a preview under a different address: dev.openstreetbrowser.org. There's a bunch of new features I want to tell you about in this post:

New version 2.0.7

There's a new version with some small bug fixes and the usual language update. The French translation got improved a lot. Notable change: The Blog window only opens if there's something new (if it doesn't work press 'reload').

New version 2.0.6

The new version fixes some severe bugs:
* Categories: Creating a new category always overwrote the last created new category, therefore it was more or less impossible to create categories. Now this has been fixed. You can also define the id with the tag 'id'. If the id is not available you don't get a message right now, but the alternate id is set as tag and a tag with an error message.

New version 2.0.5

Actually it's a small update, but it includes some important changes:
* Include support for Asian fonts on the Basemap and the Category Overlays
* Improvements to the rendering of Barriers (they were much to prominent)
(Note: old tiles will still show the old rendering for sure)

For sure there were also updates from the Translations, kudos to Dutch which reached 96% translated strings, though being the youngest translation!

New version 2.0.4

The new little update contains especially two improvements: The map key finally got repaired. And as usual updates to the localization were made, including Dutch as a new language!

New version 2.0.3

Again there's a small update to OpenStreetBrowser, raising the version number to 2.0.3. Updates include a fix to the update function of the boundaries (they should no longer vanish) and updates to the translation (including a new language: 'Asturian').

New Version 2.0.2

I just published a minor upgrade, version 2.0.2. Check the ChangeLog for details.
