The CGI:IRC page has been upgraded to redirect to the official OFTC webchat IRC. You can continue to use irc.openstreetmap.org, use https://webchat.oftc.net/, or use your choice of IRC client.
A number of default user-agents and heavy use apps have had their access to tile.openstreetmap.org restricted. If you are developing software using the OSMF tile servers, be sure to follow the tile usage policy.
Tile servers are being upgraded to OpenStreetMap Carto 5.0.0 which involves a database reload.
Four additional API 0.6 endpoints are now being directed to CGImap.
Upgrade of cgimap
cgimap was upgraded from 0.7.5 to version 0.8.1. JSON output is enabled by default now.
See release notes for a list of all new features/bug fixes.
The OWG has approved a new banner policy for event banners on OpenStreetMap.org.
The tile usage policy has been amended to reflect current practice and the increased load on the tile infrastructure.
New servers have been ordered for the API database and to replace the HP DL360 G6 in OSUOSL. The API DB servers may be delayed due to supply issues on CPUs. The replacement HP DL360 G6 may be delayed due to work restrictions caused by COVID-19.
