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.
* Country Names: Country names for countries with more than 1 mio inhabitants (tag 'population') were not rendered on the base map. This has been fixed and zoom levels of appearance re-organised and the style improved. (only for newly rendered tiles, for sure).

There were some minor bugfixes too:

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.

Downtime August 5th to 6th

Sorry guys, but there was a power outage on August 5th at my university and the servers didn't cleanly boot. As I was busy moving to a new place I was not able to care of this situation before August 6th around noon. Now everything should be back to normal. I hope you enjoy :)

New short domain

The OpenStreetBrowser can now also be accessed via a much shorter domain:

OpenStreetBrowser 2.0 released!

Finally, after 1 1/2 years of work, OpenStreetBrowser 2.0 is ready for use. Thanks to DerStefan who not only contributed some code but also helped by discussing stuff and motivation. Also a big 'Thank you!' to all Translators - OpenStreetBrowser is now available in ten languages (though support for some languages is still limited). There are some features in the queue for release, which didn't make into the current version, hopefully they will make it into version 2.1.

(Btw, if items on the web page appear misplaced, please force a page reload, e.g. by pressing Shift or Ctrl and the Reload button)

The most important improvements:
- A complete rewrite of the "Category"-system: It's now possible to create custom categories and changes are available very soon (usually after a couple of seconds).
- New database: The database has a new structure which is able to import changes from OpenStreetMap. These should appear in OpenStreetBrowser after a couple of minutes.
- OpenStreetBrowser is now available worldwide.
