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

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!).
