#3111: Lower Default Buffer
  Reporter:  crschmidt   |       Owner:  elemoine    
      Type:  feature     |      Status:  closed      
  Priority:  minor       |   Milestone:  2.11 Release
 Component:  Layer.Grid  |     Version:  2.10

Changes (by crschmidt):

  * status:  new => closed
  * resolution:  => fixed


 (In [11481]) Default the buffer to 0 instead of 2. On small maps (or
 maps on small devices) this is a huge win: instead of downloading
 *42 tiles* on a 500x500 div, we now download just 12, a 3.5x savings
 in downloads by default. The buffer of 2 was originally chosen when
 most maps were based on slow-loading WMS laeyrs and having an area
 to pan into was more important. That default no longer makes sense.
