Hi all,

Normal announcement. Ordnance Survey have again managed to release a new version of OS Locator whilst still listing it as the old version on their site. Be assured, what you will be served with is the November 2012 OS Locator.

This release looks to have 7609 new entries and 5077 removed entries. Though of course a lot of those "new" entries are just slightly altered incarnations of some of the deleted entries (I don't try too hard to second-guess OS's shifting around of entries). My modified version that I've attached "stable" ids to is also up [1].

As ever, taking a look as musical chairs [2] for the next few ways will show you new entries as "recent updates" - good for seeing the changes in your area.

Slightly rushed email - if you don't know what I'm on about you can refer to the wiki page [3].
