Hi! Today I am releasing the first version of MapBBCode JavaScript 
library. It allows for easy integration of maps into forums, blogs and 
other web engines. All you have to do is write a simple plugin employing 
the library :) There are examples and extensive documentation. Sadly, 
FluxBB (forum.osm.org engine) is not on my to do list — but maybe 
someone has time for it. The official site for the library is 
http://mapbbcode.org .

Also I am proud to present the map sharing site, 
http://share.mapbbcode.org . It showcases the library and is great for 
quick creation of maps, converting between formats and collaborative 
editing (though there is no versioning). It doesn't require any 
registration, there are no splash screens and no branding: just open, 
edit, save, share. And it works in IE8!

A longer announcement with screenshots is at 

Source code for everything I made for this project is published on 
github under WTFPL: https://github.com/MapBBCode
