Hi,

we are happy to announce the release of a new stable version 2.3 of
Nominatim, the OSM search engine.

There are two new features that are most notable for users of the
search engine: there is now support for waterway relations, which improves
searching for rivers, and POIs like shops and restaurants now
can inherit their address from the building they are in. 

Next to that a lot of smaller bugs have been fixed and further tweaks
to the search algorithm allow for improved ordering of results. This
release also marks the arrival of a functional test suite for
Nominatim.

The new release is available at

http://www.nominatim.org/release/Nominatim-2.3.0.tar.bz2

Installation instructions are at the usual place at

Regards

Sarah
