OpenStreetMap Carto 2.34.0 has been released and rolled out to the
openstreetmap.org servers. It might take up to 48 hours before all
tiles show the new rendering.

Changes include

    better rendering for highway=path/footway/cycleway - this is the
    next iteration of improving how footways and cycleways are
    displayed. Unpaved footways are now visible on natural=bare_rock
    and there are now three classes: paved, unpaved and unknown surface

    man_made=bridge is now rendered #1633, #1791

    new rendering for landuse=quarry #1696

    amenity=veterinary is now rendered #1656

    amenity=community_centre is now rendered #1744

    amenity=prison and landuse=military rendering takes in account area
    size #1739

    consistent color for boundaries #1773

    tweaked zoom level for amenity=car_sharing #1762 and
    amenity=car_rental #1761

    Mapnik 3 preperations are now finished. The style now supports
    Mapnik 3. Most of the work was done on the Mapnik side. #1792

A full list of changes can be found on Github -

Style for footways and cycleways is not ideal and there are some known
problems (see #1793 and #1748). Pull requests that would solve this
issues are welcomed.

It is a good idea to check whatever bridges in your region are tagged
for renderer - mistagging bridges as buildings is quite popular (only
rare constructions fit definition of building=bridge - building=bridge
is brown and man_made=bridge is gray).

For people interested in adding surface tags in their area - here is a
helpful overpass query (zoom in before using "Run" button):
http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/b88 This query return ways without surface
tags and ones tagged with tags not documented as valid surface values.
Only ways with highway=footway/path/cycleway are displayed. In nearly
fully mapped regions one may modify query to search for missing surface
also for other highway types.

As always, we welcome bug reports at
https://github.com/gravitystorm/openstreetmap-carto/issues where they
will be tracked.
