- Solid layer node and container enhancements and a new layer node type.
- A feature selection model for synchronizing selected rows in a grid
and features in a layer.

attributes reader & store; WMS DescribeLayer reader and store; and a Web

take advantage of all the new features in this release, you'll need a
nightly build of OpenLayers. See the release notes for specific
