libCURL (Dev: 2020/05/09 21:57)

Lynn Deffenbaugh

A new development release has been pushed out that includes two minor changes:

1) Correct handling of satellite and lightning multilines if a { happens to be in the !DAO!

2) Use libcurl instead of custom-coded HTTP/1.0 client for map tile fetching.  MUCH faster as it uses HTTP/1.1 and re-uses server connections.

That second one is not only a dramatic performance boost for tile fetching, but also lays the groundwork for being able to support https tile sources  Of course, those will only happen from MbTiles files as the old tile set definition has no way to specify the protocol to use.  The MbTiles layout I'm using includes the full URL in the database, so it will be able to support https (but it doesn't yet, so don't try it!).
