Release 0.5.0

Feb 07, 2008

I'm very pleased to announce Mapnik 0.5.0. It has been a long time in development, but I hope it was worth waiting for. This release brings numerous stability and performance improvements. I am particularly excited to see Mapnik performing well in multi-threaded setups, offering scalability.

During 2007, Mapnik has been deployed in a number of diverse environments, rendering maps 24/7.Here are some people who use Mapnik :

List of some new/improved features:

  • support for native builds on Mac OS X (both Tiger and Leopard)
  • support for single/multi-threading variants
  • gdal raster support
  • more comprehensive text label placement functionality (min_distance, spacing)
  • viewer - qt4 based application
  • character encoding support (iconv)
  • changed internal geometry representation to explicitly support multi-geometries
  • placement_finder is re-factored
  • optional libxml2 based map loader (internal and external entities)
  • image quantization
  • support for image 'views'
  • improved 'memory file' based i/o in shape input plug-in
  • support for 'numeric' type in postgis input plug-in
  • saving images directly into Python string
  • win32 binaries built with VC++ express

***This is a major feature enhancement as well as a bugfix release and everyone is encouraged to upgrade***

Thanks to everyone involved, I really appreciate your help. And let's make Mapnik even better this year!

Artem
