The OpenLayers development team is proud to announce the first Release Candidate of OpenLayers 2.13.

OpenLayers 2.13 offers major improvements in various areas, with great HTML5- and CSS3-based new features.

We invite you to help us test the 2.13 release candidate! To test 2.13 in your applications, include the following tag in your OpenLayers-powered page:

<script src="http://openlayers.org/api/2.13-rc1/OpenLayers.js"></script>

As always, the source is available at http://openlayers.org/download/. Bug reports can be filed in GitHub at  https://github.com/openlayers/openlayers/issues. Please use the 2.13 label if you think you have found a regression.

The OpenLayers 2.13 release offers new features and improvements in various areas. Some of the highlights include:

Partial redesign of the Google v3 Layer
Partial redesign of Control.ModifyFeature to not use a built-in SelectFeature control, to better support mobile devices
Optional tile queueing with the introduction of OpenLayers.TileManager
Map: Animated zooming and GPU support
(Preliminary) support for IE10 touch
WPS client

It is also important to note that the 2.13 release deprecates a number of classes and functions. Applications that rely on deprecated objects now need to load the deprecated.js script.

For more information about the new features, deprecated code etc. see the release notes at [1].

Many thanks to all who have participated - and still participate - to the 2.13 release!
