Hi all,

Glad to announce the first release of Kothic JS map rendering engine.

There's live demo on http://kothic.org/js/

Main features are:

 * Pure javascript - no closed-source proprietary components like
Silverlight or Flash;

 * Crossbrowser and cross-platform - works wherever you've got
JavaScript and Canvas;

 * Rendering quality is superb and is on par with server-side
renderers like Mapnik;

 * MapCSS support - reuse your stylesheet in other renderer, like
Mapnik (using komap preprocessor), Halcyon or JOSM.

 * BSD license.
