Release Notes: This release targets the stability and usability of the Mapnik Core while bringing advancements to the Datasource Plugins.

Nevertheless, this release brings improvements and fixes to the C++ core that warrant a major release and new a ABI version.
Release Notes: This release offers a great advancement in usability and features such as several new plugins, advanced symbolization, and ICU Unicode support. Over 140 tickets were closed against this milestone, and builds across Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows should be working better than ever.
Release Notes: This release builds with GCC 4.3. It re-enables regex support, which was inadvertently disabled in 0.5.0. Better error handling has been added to shapeindex. Support has been added for PPC-64 builds. A division by zero error in placement_finder.cpp with multiple loops has been fixed.
Release Notes: Support was added for native builds on Mac OS X, single/multi-threading variants, gdal rastering, and character encoding. The text label placement functionality was made more comprehensive. A Qt4 based viewer application was added. The internal geometry representation was changed to explicitly support multi-geometries. An optional libxml2 based map loader was added. Image quantization was added. Image "views" are supported. The "memory file" based I/O in the shape input plug-in was improved.
Release Notes: Major feature enhancements were made as well as a bugfixes. The new features include projection transformations, multiple named styles in WMS, 'line following' text labels, a 'shield' symbolizer, feature querying, character encoding support, GetFeatureInfo with text/plain and text/xml output, and support for right to left languages.
Release Notes: The license has changed from the GPL to the LGPL. There is a Python-based WMS server (WMS 1.1.1 and 1.3.0), a new Renderer interface, a new Feature model, font engine and text symbolization, Python and C++ demos, Win32 support (tested with vc-8_0), and x86_64 support.
Release Notes: The main focus of this release is to provide a better user experience while installing mapnik. It offers a new build system, new installation instructions, new symbolizers (polygon/line patterns), many fixes, and a new Web site.
Release Notes: This release adds serialization support for map definition objects (Text, XML, and binary), alpha blending for symbols, and some performance and portability improvements. Several bugs/features were corrected, including the bug in the shape data source that prevented attributes being read for point/pointz/pointm geometries.
Release Notes: This is mainly a bugfix release. Support for agg-2.4 was added.
