Hi all,

Here you can download a new version of my utilities:
http://loadstonetools.googlecode.com/files/loadstonetools-2009-10-18-1.exe

Improved processing speed (up to two times)
Due to a new xml parser in use, the distro size was reduced
Optimized memory usage
Added more amenity labels
Changes to reprocessor, now it can successfully process even very large 
databases

However note, that if you need to convert the gigantic OSM files and 
don't have a lot of memory for this, consider to use php converter instead.

Don't forget about unique features such as specifying the list of 
preferred name tags for constructing point name. For example, adding 
-Nname:en to the command line will say that you prefer to have english 
names of points instead of default names (which can be in language you 
don't know). Or vise versa:
-Nname:fr means that you'd better to have french version of names, if 
possible.
