[mkgmap-dev] New branch is-in for experiments on style function is_in

From jan meisters jan_m23 at gmx.net on Mon Dec 30 13:16:21 GMT 2019

Hi Gerd,

is the function still invoked with —is-in-hook=landuse…,  as before?
Or is it now just to be defined in the Style?
And which are the three parameters you mentioned?
