> A new version of the tiles at home client is now available.
> The main changes are:
> - Different rules files are used for each zoom level. Levels 12 and 13
> have been modified to make major roads more visible and town names are
> now big enough to read.
> - Multiple instances of tiles at home can now be run simultaneously. Those
> of you with dual processors will now be able to contribute twice as much.
> - The rendering stage is skipped for blank tiles, areas with sparse data
> will be processed much quicker.
> - A new .conf file replaces secret.txt. Example versions are provided
> for Linux and Windows, so it should be easier to get it going on Windows.
> - If a tile is too large/complex to download from OSM it will attempt to
> downoad the tile in smaller chunks
> When you install this update you will need to discard your old
> secret.txt file and add your download/upload account details to
Do we know if this fixes the black tile issue, or is it still an issue
