Hello everyone,

I am pleased to announce the first open beta version of MoNav, a fast
and exact open-source desktop/mobile routing application.

Its main features are:
 - fast routing using a Contraction Hierarchies variant ( PDMCH )
 - advanced importing of OpenStreetMap data
 - support for a wide range of mobile devices as well as desktop PCs
 - simple and intuitive GUI
 - multi-core support
 - lightweight, easy to use and install

Route computation with MoNav takes at most milliseconds and unlike
most commercial software does not rely on inaccurate heuristics.
Expected routing time for a graph the size of Germany:
 - Desktop PC: <1ms for arbitrary routes
 - Mobile Phone: <50ms for arbitrary routes

A release build, sources and documentation are available at:
 - http://code.google.com/p/monav/

Please note that this project is under active development and while
considered stable may still contain serious bugs. Comments, bug
reports and suggestions are welcome and can be filed under:
 - http://code.google.com/p/monav/issues/list

While MoNav already provides most basic functionality commercial
products offer several comfort features are still lacking, most
 - turning restrictions and penalties
 - voice directions
 - space efficient vector rendering
 - GUI improvements
If you believe you can contribute and are interested in joining the
development team please let me know.

Happy routing!
Christian Vetter
