Cesium Release Roundup November 2020

We’ve been improving our learning materials, including adding new tutorials on how to build a flight tracker and how to visualize a proposed building. Our newest addition is a guide to styling and filtering 3D Tiles in CesiumJS, with instructions on how to style point clouds, how to color Cesium OSM buildings based on conditions, such as distance from a focal point, as well as as tips on how to handle null properties, define new properties, and incorporate special functions to make styling easier.

If you have feedback on these tutorials or have ideas of what else you’d like to see in our documentation, let us know on the community forum.
