Automatically generated API documentation is available:
- 2.6 (Last stable release) API Natural Docs on dev.openlayers.org.
- Trunk API Natural Docs on dev.openlayers.org.
See Natural Docs conventions if you are contributing code.
Note on API Stability:
The documentation above only includes the API Methods. Full developer/internal library documentation is also available below, but methods which are not available in the API documentation above can not be depended upon to stay the same between releases. If you use methods included in these docs, you may have to make modifications in your application code to run between minor releases of OpenLayers.
