WME v1.6 release - (v169)

Postby ohad-ron » Sun Jul 06, 2014 9:44 am

Hey guys,

A new editor version is upon us. Here are the details:
  • Road ranks - we have improved the way this works according to your feedback. Basically, all roads are defaultly locked to automatic. Automatic is the road ranks algorithm - a busier road will be locked to a higher rank, according to specific country configuration etc. An editor can choose to manually lock the segment on a different rank by setting the lock to that rank's number.
  • We do not show u-turn arrows for dead-end roads anymore. We know there are some pending routing issues related to that and we might rollback this change. I am on it and will keep you updated.
  • We have added the 'Ferry' road type - for now there's no change in the way it will be handled for routing - just the same as 'minor highway'. We are currently working on an improvement for this - we'll keep you posted.
  • The Street View close button is now bigger, on the other side, and can be activated with a keyboard shortcut to (Shift+W by default).
  • House numbers are now shown for places address preview
  • Translation updates
  • Hovering the permalink icon and pressing Ctrl+C/Cmd+C now copies the permalink.
  • Assign an empty city to new places if no city exists in that location
  • Bug fix: segments were not selectable if toggling on the Places layer (until panning the map).

Please let us know if you have any issues or feedback.
Happy editing!
:D :D :D

1. Where is some info about automatic locking? To what levels? When? How often?
2. User reports and map problems.. when will they get some updates? Make routes showing a little longer both directions. Some reports often dont show any user drive, only waze suggested route and one green user drive point. General problem often does not show user drive. Automatic errors on route not followed are too uninformative and with short routes.

Regarding the road ranks, are they enabled if the Automatic(1) is on the list, or is that just a default value for later usage?

Hi, Ohad (or anyone who knows...)!

Is the automatic lock being rolled out gradually? Because I'm seeing it in one of the areas I'm editing (parts of Southern California, for example) and not in others (my main area, Hawaii). And so far, I'm only finding it active on Street segment types (Automatic lock = Rank 1).

What are other people seeing?

Hi,

What about to add "state" info for segments? So far only country, city and segment name.

Thank you.

I have no street view "close" button. Shift + W closes it.

I guess the new "No display of dead end u-turns" kicked in last night. I was cleaning up my local area for the last couple of days and getting a lot of practice on editing these small streets.
This morning, I can no longer view the u-turns, but not only that, I am unable to clear the error displayed by the WME Validator. I am getting both the yellow "Dead end u-turn" error as well as the blue "uncomfirmed turn" error.

Is a script going to be run map-wide that will clear these remaining errors since we no longer have the ability to manually edit them?

Edit: Found the answer in another thread. Click the offending node and tap the "Q" key to clear.

I am curious as well. I see nothing in the US forum, so it hasn't been discussed publicly yet. But how is this system coming online?

All there is showing is the Automatic (1). I see no others at all.

I know that this has been talked about for a long time. But as this is coming out were our suggestions met?

I.E. maximum levels? Variation of lock level by region? (rural vs city)

Any info you guys could provide regarding this would be great.

Thanks,
