Besides earlier announced plans on system developing (read about it also at and OpenWebGIS team sets the new goal to explore the possibility to use the new library version of OpenLayers 3 (now in the core of the system OpenLayers 2 is used). The result of the first experiments is available at the link ( it will be updated, please follow the changes). This experimental version we will call OpenWebGIS 2. While the version OpenWebGIS 1.0 still is the main, actual and constantly supported. This OpenWebGIS 1.0 version should be used for your  diverse tasks in cartography.
