There's a new version of the tiles at home client available (Dublin).
Those of you who are running the client know what to do.
This version includes the very latest version of Osmarender which has
some improvments to the way symbols are handled (thanks to Jochen for
It also utilises a pre-processor (called Frollo) which sorts out the
ordering and direction of segments. Segments that are mis-ordered or
pointing in the wrong direction will no longer cause so much of a
problem on the rendered tiles. There should be a visible improvement
in areas, where a mis-ordered segment could often cause great big
triangular holes. There should also be an improvement to the
rendering of street names. There should be fewer chopped up and
inverted street names.
The Frollo pre-processor is designed specifically for use with
Osmarender, but both Frollo and Osmarender can be used on their own.
Frollo may be useful for anything that needs to have the segments
sorted into a sensible order. More details here:
Finally, there have also been a few minor adjustments to the rules
files. Mainly related to airport features (eg aeroway=apron),
monorails and buildings (terracotta rather than purple now).
