Openlayers 2.0 released

It doesn’t seem as though the usual suspects picked up on this, but Openlayers is now officially at v2.0

The OpenLayers development team is proud to announce the release of
OpenLayers 2.0.

OpenLayers makes it easy to put a dynamic map in any web page. It can
display map tiles and markers loaded from any source. OpenLayers is
completely free, Open Source JavaScript, released under the BSD License.

This new release of OpenLayers supports a number of new layer types,
including support for Virtual Earth, Google, and more, alongside WMS,
WFS, KaMap, and GeoRSS.

The main development crew including Chris Schmidt certainly brings new meaning to “release early, release often”. Check out the examples for some ideas of what this js library is capable of.

If you’re wanting a client you can set up in 10 seconds, requires little configuration, has no serverside component and consumes a variety of data services .. this is for you! Watch the next release for some funky new canvas code too
