๐Ÿ“ฐ News

This months we had quite a few first-time contributions! Let’s hope this trend keeps up. The maplibre-rs team will try to supply enough high-quality issues. Apart from that major progress in headless rendering and CI infrastructure has been done.

I’m happy to announce that @ybiletskyi and @Quillasp are checking out what’s needed to get raster tile rendering working. @ybiletskyi resolved a limitation of wgpu in #2781. Looking forward to see how the project scales with new features!

The paper about maplibre-rs for FOSS4G is finished! Looking forward to meet all of you in August!
