Dear all,

Today, v2.44.1 of the openstreetmap-carto stylesheet (the default
stylesheet on openstreetmap.org) has been released. Also, v2.44.0 was
released last month without an email, so this email includes changes
in both.

v2.44.0 has been rolled out to the openstreetmap.org servers, but v2.44.1
has not yet.

Major changes are
- Rendering of restricted access roads and paths significantly changed
- Changed to use Noto fonts for all languages

Other changes in both versions include
- A code of conduct adopted, based on the Go code of conduct
- Adjustments to city wall rendering
- Revised low zoom place rendering
- Render both house name and number if address has both

Thanks to all the contributors for this release, in particular Lukas
Sommer, Hsiao-Ting Yu and vholten for work in debugging complex font
issues with the Noto CJK fonts.
