OpenStreetMap Carto release v4.12.0

Daniel Koć
Dear all,

Today, v4.12.0 of the OpenStreetMap Carto stylesheet (the default
stylesheet on the OSM website) has been released. Once changes are
deployed on the it will take couple of days before
all tiles show the new rendering.

Changes include:

Major changes
- Dropped subpixel accuracy for areas, which includes tuning some
database indexes. When deployed, it might speed up reading data.

- Added rendering “surface” tag on roads with a pattern
- More vertical objects rendering and tuning (man_made=tower types,
man_made=chimney, man_made=communications_tower)
- tourism=information types rendering and tuning
(information=audioguide, board, guidepost, map, office, tactile_map,
tactile_model and terminal)
- Added rendering for place=quarter
- Added rendering of historic=city_gate
- Added rendering of lock_name
- Ditch and drain name labels are rendered with some offset
- Pixel aligned ford icon
- Made amenity=shelter icon brown
- Finer man_made=pier width rendering
- Rendering living street tunnels different from residential
- Added rendering of overground power=cable like power=line
- Small documentation and code fixes

Thanks to all the contributors for this release including Adamant36 and
M1dgard, new contributors. I also like to thank nebulon42 who left our
team due to a change of his priorities for all the work on this style
and the tools we're using!
