Decouple the decoding of maps from the MapView class in the android platform.
It would be desirable to include the ability to generate tiles from .map files, or from online sources without having to use the MapView class.
Decode the format used by mapsforge maps is complex, and may be developers do not want to use the functionality offered by the MapView class, because having their own implementation.
I do not know the library in depth, but attached is an example of how you could do, using the class SimpleMapTileProvider.

yes, we are working towards the 0.3.0 release. Large parts of the map library have been rewritten or at least refactored and many new features have been added, most notable the new render theme API.
Although the current SVN version is still under construction and neither very stable nor feature-complete, can you please take a look at it in the next days? Many features have been moved into separate classes and/or packages and are decoupled from each other and in particular from the MapView. The MapDatabase component is a nearly independent package and has a much cleaner interface now. Please tell me if this makes it easier for you to use only certain parts of the library and what should be changed in order to improve it further.
The 0.3.0 release will also introduce a renewed version of our binary map file format, old files are no longer supported unfortunately. When we have published the release and your have regenerated all your files, we can add a link to your alternative download site so that people have a larger choice of map files.
