Dear all,

Today, v4.25.0 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:

* Remove rendering of barrier=embankment (#4010)

    Embankments are now commonly tagged with man_made=embankment or

* Remove rendering of barrier=kerb (#3969)

     This feature is not similar to common barriers (fences and walls)

* Remove boundary=protected_area fill color at low zoom levels (#3887)

     Also changes protected area line and text to new @protected-area

* Remove polygon fill rendering for barrier=hedge areas (#3844)

     This makes the rendering consistent between walls and hedges as areas

* Remove operator text label for most amenity=vending_machine (#3965)

    Operator= label is still rendered for vending=public_transport_tickets

* Add svg icon for parking=multi-storey + amenity=parking_entrance (#3599)

* Fix syntax of font list and enable Armenian font (#3989)

* Use text-dy for wind generators only, not for other power=generator
features (#3964)

* Use ST_PointOnSurface for bridge names (#3902)

* Use ST_PointOnSurface for text-poly-low-zoom (#3921)

* Use ST_PointOnSurface for roads-area-text-name (#3932)

* Use ST_PointOnSurface for junctions (#3933)

    These PRs complete the switch to ST_PointOnSurface for labeling
all polygon features with text labels, which was began a year ago.

* Minor code clean-ups:

Remove way_pixels selection from bridge layer (#3950)
Remove name from SQL select when unused (#3947)
Combine line-barriers and area-barriers layers into one

Thanks to all the contributors for this release, including @Sjord
(Sjoerd Langkemper), a new contributor.
