Dear all,

Today, v2.40.0 of the openstreetmap-carto stylesheet (the default
stylesheet on openstreetmap.org) has been released and rolled out to
the openstreetmap.org servers. It might take a couple of days before
all tiles show the new rendering.

Changes include:

* More consistent size of icon labels (bigger labels in most cases).
* Changed rendering of power lines on low zoom levels.
* Changed rendering of turning circles.
* Changed icon for libraries and book shops.
* Larger labels for place names.
* Various bug fixes.

For a full list of commits, see

As always, we welcome any bug reports at
