It is great that libchamplain 0.12 will materialize. Because of the
silence I thought that there won't be any release this Gnome release

As of bugs I have some but they may be connected with vala 0.12 gir
support not being the best and I did not test vala 0.14 (0.13.x). The
only thing that I have found besides this is that I think that the map
tiles are not rechecked if they are changed. If I change or add
something in OSM, I have to delete the cache to force to re-download
the tiles. In the past libchamplain did re-download the tiles this is
what I am sure.

A good thing would also be to update the todos and ideas as I don't
have a clue what to expect from the next versions of libchamplain. One
thing that I am missing in libchamplain now is a continuous map from
west to east, the ability to rotate the map would also be cool.
