Changelog

This page aims for providing user-friendly changelog for the stable releases of JOSM. Its granularity lies somewhere between the contents of StartupPage and the SVN log messages.

  • This list contains mainly only enhancements and changes.
  • Bug fixes are mostly not listed here (although a major part of the changes of each release cycle are bug fixes). See the link to the SVN log messages at the end of each chapter to search for fixed bugs.
  • Changes of external resources (Presets, Map Paint Styles, Validator Rules and Plugins) are not listed here.
  • There are also JOSM related changes in the osm trac which are not listed here as well.
