Dear all,

Today, v2.45.0 of the openstreetmap-carto stylesheet (the default
stylesheet on openstreetmap.org) has been released.

Changes include:
- Rendering all shops without a specific icon as a dot, not just a 
- Scrub pattern change to random
- Changing pitch and track color
- Railway stations rendering as major buildings
- Rendering the name of man_made=bridge inside the polygon
- Documentation updates (including cartography design goals and icon 
design guidelines)
- Icons general code cleaning
- Various bug fixes

Thanks to all the contributors for this release, including micahcochran,
a new contributor.

As always, we welcome any bug reports at

You may also like to know that this release is the first with 3 new 
maintainers on board. Please be aware that we're going to drop some 
dependencies soon (like Mapnik 2), so we're approaching a big version
