Update from FOSS4G

We’ve seen a good bit of OpenLayers activity at the conference so far.  Last night, a crowd of 25 or so gathered at the OpenLayers Birds of a Feather session.  It was a good opportunity to hear how people were using the library in their applications.  We got plenty of suggestions on ways to improve things.  Among them:

  • More OpenLayers.Console.warn and error calls for better diagnostics in debug mode.
  • Clean up examples: more consistent coding style, remove examples of deprecated behavior (or archive them separately), organize examples by category and make them more easily discoverable.
  • Finish moving style declarations to CSS (pink tiles first!)
  • Work on separating GUI from controls, more event driven design.

We hope that people have a chance to dig into some of this work at Saturday’s code sprint.
