The OpenLayers dev team is proud to announce the 4th release candidate
of OpenLayers 2.12! This RC fixes the following bugs:

- The Layer.getServerZoom method introduced a regression that may
trigger when using XYZ layers as overlays.
- The calculation of maxResolution based on tileSize is incorrect for
single tile layers.
- The GPX format does transform geometries when necessary, but
serializes the untransformed coords.
- The BBOX strategy may fetch data while the layer is out of range.
- Vector layers may be displaced in Chrome 18 and 19.
- Layer.Bing does not work in IE 8.

See <https://github.com/openlayers/openlayers/issues?milestone=5&state=closed>
for details.
