You can find detailed instruction how to get libraries and applications build and working and other introductory documentation on the homepage.
The documentation in the OpenStreepMap Wiki is currently still correct but is not activily maintained by the libosmscout team.
You can find a list of features here. Note that the features pages are currently not up to date. We are unsure how to best represent all the features of libosmscout.
There are a number of demo applications that show how to make use of the various features of the library.
We plan to move all documentation for the repository to the homepage.
Automatic builds for Linux and Mac OS X can be found at Travis. The Linux builds are currently based on Ubuntu 14.04. For both operating systems clang and gcc is used as compiler.
You can find automatic builds for Windows at Appveyor. There are builds for using MinGW (autoconf, cmake) and VisualStudio (cmake).
