    • Fixed crash when loading saved stated with an arriving vehicle. ticket2938
    • Option --load-state.offset now properly applies to vehicles departing in the future that are part of the loaded state (i.e. due to having been loaded from an additional file before saving). This was a regression in version 0.29.0. ticket2949
    • Simulation behaviour is no longer affected by randomly equipping vehicles with devices that only generate outputs. ticket2977
    • Various fixes to junction-shape computation. ticket2551, ticket2874, ticket1443
    • Ramp-guessing (option --ramps.guess) no longer identifies sharply turning roads as motorway ramps.

    • The lane shapes induced by option --rectangular-lane-cut are no longer lost when editing a network
    • Deleting whole edges is working again (regression in 0.29.0). ticket2883
    • Deleting edges and afterwards adding edges no longer creates node type "unregulated" (without right-of-way rules). ticket2882
    • Fixed visual glitches when opening left-hand networks. ticket2890
    • Fixed crash when setting both junctions of an edge to the same position. ticket2902
  • TraCI

      • To deal with ambiguous stop line information in OpenDrive networks, the new option --opendrive.advance-stopline <FLOAT> may now now be used to affect the heuristic that computes stop line positioning based on the border between roads and connecting roads.
    • Move mode allows forcing junction and edge geometry positions onto a regular grid (i.e. multiples of 100) by activating show grid in the visualization options. ticket2776
    • The junction visualization options show link junction index and show link tls index are now working ticket2955
  • TraCI
    • Added vehicle.setMaxSpeed and vehicle.getMaxSpeed to the C++ client. Thanks to Raphael Riebl for the patch.

    • Vehicles can now stop at a named ParkingArea or ChargingStation. The methods traci.vehicle.setParkingAreaStop, traci.vehicle.setChargingStationStop were added to the python client to simplify this. ticket2963
    • vehicle function moveToXY now supports the special angle value traci.constants.INVALID_DOUBLE_VALUE. If this is set, the angle will not be factored into the scoring of candiate lanes and the vehicle will assume the angle of the best found lane. For vehicles outside the road network, the angle will be computed from the old and new position. ticket2262

    • Fixed invalid coloring of the gap between lanes. ticket1428

  • Tools
    • now correctly handles changes to spreadType and other optional attributes. ticket2722

    • The options --keep-edges.explicit, --keep-edges.input-file now allow for white-listing in combination with other removal options (edges are kept if listed explicitly or if any other keep-condition is met). ticket2680
    • Added new option --osm.oneway-spread-right <BOOL> for setting the default spreadType to right for one-way edges (i.e. motorways).
    • The <split>-element now supports the new attributes idBefore, idAfter to determine the ids of the newly created edges. ticket2731
