Dear OSM community,

in case you are not of aware of this we want to point out that after 
some years with less ORS related acitvities we finally managed to rise a 
completely new OpenRouteService from the ashes  :-)
Both the back- and frontend have been conceptually and technically 
totally renewed.?
Your welcome to test the service @ our usual URL:
www.openrouteservice.org <http://www.openrouteservice.org>

The most important features :
- OpenRouteService is now available for all of Europe, Asia, Africa and 
Oceania/Australia !  
- 7 different and enhanced routing profiles for cars, bikes and 
pedestrians (more to come)
- faster implementation
- automated weekly data update
- completely new implementation of accessibility analysis (more 
realistic isochrone maps)
- new WebClient with support for AvoidAreas, Import/Export of GPX etc.  
- Check the Advanced version from the Options page
- support for many international languages for directions
- base map styles from OpenMapSurfer and OSM-WMS.de et al.
- deployment on a new, stronger server

Also, the ORS wiki has been updated to further describe the available 
services (API) : http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OpenRouteService
Please try and give us feedback via Github regarding any errors or 
simply improve the client yourself:
