- Date Line Wrapping: Tiles wrap around the earth (#487)
- New/Improved Formats:
- New/Improved Feature Digitization:
- SphericalMercator support on commercial layers (#686)
- Tons and tons of bug fixes!
We have also begun to move towards deprecating some of our outdated functionality. For information on that, and other important changes to the library before updating your applications, please refer to the Release Notes, at http://trac.openlayers.org/wiki/Release/2.5/Notes .
As of 2.5-RC1, the OpenLayers 2.5 release closes 164 outstanding tickets, more than any other OpenLayers release to date! For this we are indebted to the many members of the community, and especially the hard work of organizations like The Open Plans Project via Tim Schaub and a number of developers like Pierre Giraud, Eric Lemoine, and Fred Junrod of the Camptocamp team.
We invite you to help us test the 2.5 release candidate! To test 2.5 in your applications, include the following tag in your OpenLayers-powered page:
As always, the source is available at http://openlayers.org/download/. Bug reports can be filed in Trac, under the 2.5 version and milestone.
