Dear all,

Today, v4.22.0 of the OpenStreetMap Carto stylesheet (the default
stylesheet on the OSM website) has been released. Once changes are deployed
on the openstreetmap.org it will take couple of days before all tiles
show the new rendering.

Changes include

- Shop label fixes and use ST_PointOnSurface for building label placement

   This fixes some bugs and makes building label placement consistent 
with shop
   label placement.

- Use `cache-feature: true` to improve performance of layers with 

- Use retail colour fill on malls

- Drop `highway=steps` from zoom 13

   This makes step rendering consistent with footways

- Render `place=locality` from zoom 16

   This fits current usage of the tag and what it is normally tagged on.

- Render `natural=bay` from linear ways

- Render administrative boundary labels from relations only

- Stop rendering natural=marsh

   It is recommended marshes are tagged with `natural=wetland` + 

- Use a whitelist for barrier rendering, and render `historic=citywalls` 

- Support new Tibetan font name

   Noto has renamed Noto Sans Tibetan to Noto Serif Tibetan. The old name is
   still supported.

- Code cleanups to increase reuse and improve consistency

Thanks to all the contributors for this release, including daveol and
btwhite92, new contributors, and jeisenbe, a new maintainer.
