We are happy to announce the newest release for Node Mapnik, version 3.5.0! This is a significant moment in Mapnik’s history. With the recent update to the Mapbox Vector Tile Specification, we are now creating tiles according to the updated spec. This version is built with the recently released 1.0.0 version of Mapnik Vector Tile and against core Mapnik 3.0.10, which was released last week.
I was prompted by reading this conversation recently about color blind maps. I realized suddenly that we don’t support a way for our cartographers to easily design maps that would be easy to view by a color blind individual. Determined to change this, I quickly dashed off to my development batcave!
