But the current version of the app, in the schemes, doesn't have a road type settings for railroad or parkinglot, etc. Unless it is just the file which doesn't have that, and they could push updates to that file in the background, a new app version would need to be released. If they make no app change, then it would have to render RR and PLot just like street.

But it is rendered exactly like Street type. There's no individual control over it. Until they effect some client-side change, there's no way to render different street types. They just don't exist in the configuration.

Isn't the "dot dot dot" just a pacman/new road? I've never seen it rendered in the app before.

I didn't read that the same way. I can see how it could be inferred, but the part "after enabling these road types in the client" suggests a new client vers to me.

Whether they can make this change without updating the app, I don't know. What I do find curious is that Shirli was marking some bugzilla reports for future v3.8 and v3.9, but on the change to the app to enable proper display of additional road types like parking lot, railroad, etc., she wrote, "Planned. Version not scheduled yet."

That suggests a version beyond the next two releases, like perhaps 4.0.

Me neither.

True. but some are tagged specifically as v3.8 and others 3.9, which suggests, at this time, they are planning for them.

I find unfortunate that display of railroads is contingent upon a note system. Railroads never should have been used for notes, but Waze didn't help matters much because they were aware railroad segments were being used for notes and didn't immediately put a stop to it.

I've been waiting since NA Meetup 2012 for railroads to display. Guess I'll have to wait a while longer and use an alternative device at locations where I'd really like to have the railroad as a visual reference point.

Update Requests posted from the Livemap are very effective for editor comments, and are far superior to [ab]using Railroads.

... if we may assume that all editors have the UR layer activated. ;)

My feeling is that the railroads will be pushed again by the server and thus no new client will be required, so "soon" can be anything from "now" to "only on the next client drop" to "soon"

There used to be RR on the client when I joined. It was the same as street, but with the dotdotdot in the middle, like the editor. I'm pretty sure it's something hardcoded on the client. Either way my point was simple, I understood the message as "it will happen independently of a new client".

I meant dash dash, whatever it's called. The exact same style as the editor.
