OpenLayers 2.12 Final Release

The OpenLayers Development Team is proud to announce the final release of OpenLayers 2.12!

OpenLayers 2.12 can be downloaded from http://openlayers.org/download/.

OpenLayers 2.12 offers great new features and improvements in various areas:

  • A new CSS-customizable zoom control.
  • Sensible projection defaults to ease the creation and configuration of maps.
  • Tile caching for offline use.
  • CSS-based tile animation.
  • UTFGrid support.
  • Improved image request management (tile queue).
  • Fractional zooming for tiled layers (a.k.a. client zoom).

OpenLayers 2.12 deprecates a number of properties, methods and constructors, and the deprecated objects have been moved to a separate deprecated.js file. Please look at the release notes for more information: < https://github.com/openlayers/openlayers/blob/master/notes/2.12.md>.

Many thanks to all who contributed!
