Maybe you will not see that a lot has changed, but if you look closer you will see that nearly everything regarding the map build has changed during the last two weeks. Lines and Polygons are now using extended types whereever possible or needed. This has one huge advantage, if you don't like a certain map element to be displayed at all, simply delete the definition from the Typfile (if 0x?????, in case it is 0x?? is is standard type and you should never delete the definition) and it will not be displayed anymore.

Also there is now even clearer difference on ways whether cycling is allowed or not, and many many new polygon types (e.g. fell and heathland). I think this should make eveyone happy. If you have old typfiles, adapting them will need a lot of time, as I had to move around a lot of types to accomodate the extended types.

I hope everything is working allright (the netherlands should again have working autorouting in all tiles, or so I hope).

To see all the changes I recommend that you install the legend and have a look for yourself on all the nice new features.

Germany is currently down until new version is up.
