OpenLayers 2.8 Released

The wait is over, OpenLayers 2.8 has been released.? Some of the highlights I think are important:

  • Add support for multi-layer feature selection when using vector features
  • Added support for “XYZ” layers to interact with standard caches of tiles; includes OSM support built in
  • Add support for drawing text on vector layers
  • Support for loading ArcGIS Server data
  • OSM layer
  • Improved KML support with better styling, networklink support, ExtendedData Support

The full list is here.? ArcXML support is “interesting”, but I havne’t touched an AXL file in years.

Hooray OpenLayers!
