Merkaartor 0.18.0 released
As you might have noticed, an old 0.17 bug coupled with an OSM infrastructure upgrade led to the impossibility of uploading changes, recently.
Although (thanks to Jonathan) the upgrade was reversed, it is nonetheless more than time to release Merkaartor 0.18.0, after a very long quiet time, and even though the release hasn't been as thoroughly tested as I'd like (so expect bugs and crashes)...
Besides this blocking issue and usual bug fixes, the changes are too many too enumerate. The most obvious one you will notice is that the full rendering of the map is now done asynchronously, which fluidify panning and zooming, especially with large datasets.
Please check the CHANGELOG file (or Help-About) for the full list of improvements since 0.17
Head on to the Files section and happy mapping.
