Hi everyone,

I'm pleased to announce the first open source release of imposm.
Imposm is an OpenStreetMap importer for PostGIS databases. It is designed
to create databases that are optimized for rendering/WMS services.

It supports custom database schemas, generalized tables and union views.
It uses C extensions for performance critical parts and automatically
distributes the parsing and importing across multiple CPUs/cores.

It is developed and supported by Omniscale, runs on Linux or Mac OS X
and is released as open source under the Apache Software License 2.0.
