I'm very pleased to announce mapnik's new release. We've been working hard to get here. The main focus of this release is to provide a better user experience while installing mapnik, which hopefully will bring more people on board. I know, there is room for further improvements but this is a step in the right direction. This release offers:
- new build system
- new INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
- new symbolizers (polygon/line patterns)
- lots of fixes.
Big thanks go to Jean-François Doyon, who in his spare time, refactored mapnik's source tree and wrote a better build system using SCons.
