ANNOUNCE: osm-gps-map 0.4

Hi Everyone,

I am pleased to announce version 0.4 of osm-gps-map, a library, and
python bindings for displaying raster map data from a variety of
different sources.

Where to Get It

What is New
  * Map can now be constructed by passing a MAP_SOURCE ID instead of
the map repo uri
  * Fix iter safety when purging the tile cache
  * Fix for segfault when adding images to the map
  * Remove map repo uris from public API. They should now be retrieved
using osm_gps_map_source_get_repo_uri(OsmGpsMapSource_t source)
  * Add osm_gps_map_get_scale
  * Implement a blank map source that just draws grey tiles
  * Demo application now stores maps in XDG_CACHE_DIR
  * Fix build and crashes on windows
  * Add getters for name and zoom
  * Add a more complete python example
  * Add ability to purge the cache

What Is It
osm-gps-map is a Gtk+ widget (and Python bindings) that when given GPS
co-ordinates, draws a GPS track, and points of interest on a moving
map display. It Currently supports a number of different mapping

  * openstreetmap (default)
  * maps-for-free
  * satellite maps from a number of proprietary providers

It also has the following features;

  * Intelligent caching of maps, including the ability to request a
specific area of the map to be cached ahead of time
  * Recording of points of interest on the map (and the ability to add
arbitary pixmaps at those points
  * Automatically draws a GPS track (a line showing the history of
past added points)
  * Automatic centering on new GPS points
  * Support for multiple other tracks of co-ordinate points
  * Adjustable Zoom
  * Includes comprehensive examples (C and Python)
  * Simple, flat API
