    • Categories: Fix creating new categories ; Set tag 'id' to define id of category

Version 2.0.5 - 2011-09-11

  • Bugfixes
  • Updated translations (thanks to all contributors!)
    • Congrats to Dutch, which reached 96% translated strings, though being the youngest translation!
  • Updates to the Basemap (affecting all new tiles)
    • Include fonts for Asian languages
    • Barriers-Rendering has been improved (see Improve barriers)

Version 2.0.4 - 2011-08-29

  • Bugfixes
  • Fixed the Map Key (for basemap)
  • Translations:
    • Updated translations from Wiki
    • moved strings for the map-key to correct places, including rename
    • New language Dutch

Version 2.0.3 - 2011-08-14

  • boundaries no longer vanish during update from OSM (rendered map tiles will still not show missing boundaries, because they will not be updated that soon)
  • Translations:
    • Fixes in translations (move strings to correct place, add some missing strings)
    • New language Asturian, updates to other languages
    • The category list under 'More Categories' is being translated (if available)

Version 2.0.2 - 2011-08-09

  • Updated translations (thanks to all contributors!)
  • Some updates to the rendering of the basemap
    • In the style I had confused highway=trunk and highway=motorway_link, therefore trunk roads were not rendered in zoom<9 and in wrong style (trunk roads are a thick line, orange; motorway link are thin line, red).
    • Re-ordered priority of link-roads in rendering: Below major roads
    • Due to a bug railways were not rendered in zoom<8 ; improve style
    • Waterways are a little more prominent in zoom<11
  • Something in the rendering queue has a memory leak ... restart renderd every now and then
  • Improve detection of boundaries

Version 2.0.1 - 2011-07-23

  • Woods/Forest have a solid color now (#72c063), because pattern obscures other map objects
  • Fixed the Wikipedia Plugin: It should display the article in the right language (if available) as well should be more intelligent in compiling the abstract

Version 2.0 - 2011-07-14

  • new database that is nearly up-to-date in realtime
  • worldwide coverage
  • markers now in permalinks
  • context menu on left or right mouse click on the map
  • translations in ten languages
  • ...


Version 2.1

Maybe not in 2.1 but later?

  • Save views/objects/... as favorites
  • Viewer for GPX-files
  • Measure distances and areas on the map

Ideas for later

  • Better translation system
  • Download current object as GPX/KML/Shapefile
  • Download category for an area as GPX/KML/Shapefile
  • "My Maps" - draw things on the map (KML)
  • Layer-Menu, custom external Layers
