The Mapbox team have continued to churn out release after release for Mapbox GL JS, with countless new features since the last issue of the newsletter.

Major improvements include a new LOD-based tiling system (in preparation for relaxing tilt limits) as well as improved performance for raster layers and hill-shading. There’s also a new operator for applying styling or filters based on features that are contained within a GeoJSON shape, which is really useful.
