The mapnik layer is updated up to once per week and is based on the last
planet.osm dump (usually every Wednesday). Updates are requested just by
looking at the area in question.

The Osmarender layer is updated using the live data. Updates get
requested automatically by looking at the RSS feed but it won't be
requested more than once in a certain amount of time.

You can request updates to the Osmarender layer at
http://www.informationfreeway.org/ or my static tile browser
(http://osm.bandnet.org/browse/), which will also allow you to update
low zoom tiles as well.

Have a g'day,
