OL3 Lausanne Sprint Kick-Off

March 2nd, 2013 by Tim Schaub · 4 Comments

Blogging on a saturday?? You bet! Blogging and sprinting even. As part of our ongoing OpenLayers 3 development effort, a number of us are gathering in Lausanne for a short sprint. Our calendars were tight and ambitions high, so we found an opening and made quick travel plans. Today was an OpenGeo gathering; Andreas, Bart, and I spent the day talking about and working on vector functionality. Bart is tackling format parsing, adding KML parsing to the existing GeoJSON support. Andreas is working on rule based styling for vector layers. And I re-worked our internal geometry model to use shared coordinate arrays in preparation for efficient WebGL rendering.

In a couple hours we meet the Camptocamp guys as they get in to town. With Eric, Bruno, Tom, and Fred, we’ll dive into it again tomorrow morning. We’re grateful to Camptocamp for hosting us in their offices and to the OpenLayers 3 sponsors for supporting us in this development effort. Stay tuned for details on our progress.

    I was wondering if there was a ball-parked release date for OpenLayers 3? I can’t seem to find an updated roadmap or any information. I see that the Github is being updated constantly. Is there any word on how close it is to being released?
