Hi all,

what is the latest stable version that is safe to use on a production

The latest available version is Overpass API v0.7.52. The source has just been released, a release documentation has not been written yet:

It supports in addition to the previous version to keep the database compressed. This can be both an advantage or a disadvantage, depending on the particular setting. It is an advantage if you are short of disk space (because you are using an SSD), and it is a dsiadvantage if your CPU gets to its limits. In the long turn, a better internal caching should allow to get

In addition, it fixes a lot of (but unfortunately not all) bugs that have been found in the meantime.

Which versions of Overpass accept regular expressions in queries?

Versions 0.7.51 and 0.7.52 accept regular expressions on keys as well as on values.

All versions since at least 0.7.1 allow to query by regular expressions on values. I strongly discourage using any older versions, because they don't handle 64-Bit-Ids on nodes.

Best regards,
