     20Every [/roadmap month] the team of JOSM [wiki:Releases releases] a ''tested version''.
     21It is the base for the MS Windows portable variant and for the Apple Mac variant.
     22When you click to launch josm.jnlp, Java's [wiki:InstallNotes#Webstart Web Start] provides you always with the newest tested version of JOSM.
     23
     24Every [/log/josm/?verbose=on&limit=20 night] the build systems generate a ''latest version''.
     25These versions might have severe errors or even crash. But mostly they work well, too.
     26For the latest version is also a Web Start variant available.

    25 === latest or tested or webstart ===
    26 * ''tested'' - [wiki:Releases released approx. monthly and shouldn't contain severe bugs]
    27 * ''latest'' (development version) - [wiki:Releases released daily, may have more errors]
    28 * ''.jnlp link'' - If possible, use the Web Start version in order to '''automatically update'''.
    29 
    30  * Prepare a [wiki:USB_Stick USB flash drive] to use JOSM on any foreign Windows machine.
    31  * For download scripts use version check for [/latest latest] and [/tested tested] (or [/version both]) to reduce download bandwith
    32 
    33 === openSUSE repository ===#openSUSE
     41
     42When running scripts please first check on [/latest latest], [/tested tested] or [/version both] to reduce download bandwidth.
     43
     44==== Strip translations ====
     45
     46If download size is an issue for you:
     47 * Append **?lang=…** to the download link address for the tested version to strip unused translations (e.g. **?lang=de** will download JOSM in German language only).
     48 * **Note**: Use underscore to separate [[Translations|language codes]] with country code extensions, e.g. **?lang=en_GB**
     49 * Append **?unsigned=1** to strip the code signing information
     50 * When **lang** and **unsigned** are used the separation is a **&** sign like in **?lang=de&unsigned=1**
     51
     52The file size shrinks from .jar: 10.2M over .jar?lang=de: 8.2M to .jar?lang=de&unsigned=1: 7.7M (as of version 10786).

    3558Tested version of JOSM is available in the Application:Geo repository.
     
    4265Then simply install **josm** and **josm-fonts** package.

    44 === Ubuntu repository ===#Ubuntu
     67=== Ubuntu ===#Ubuntu

    4669This is a package repository primarily for Ubuntu. It should also work with other Debian based (especially Ubuntu based) distributions, but we do not actively test and maintain any distributions other than Ubuntu.

    48 Note: in addition to the regular procedure described below, older DEBs can be manually downloaded and clicked to be installed from the following directories:   [https://josm.openstreetmap.de/apt/pool/universe/j/josm/ for josm]  [https://josm.openstreetmap.de/apt/pool/universe/j/josm-latest/ for josm-latest] 
     71Note: in addition to the regular procedure described below, older DEBs can be manually downloaded from the archives [https://josm.openstreetmap.de/apt/pool/universe/j/josm/ for josm] aka josm-tested and [https://josm.openstreetmap.de/apt/pool/universe/j/josm-latest/ for josm-latest].

    128 In most cases this means Java (JVM) wasn't installed. JOSM is tested and developed with Oracle JVM, therefore it is recommended to get it from java.com site.

    138 ==== Strip down unnecessary translations in .jar ====
    139 
    140 If download size is an issue for you:
    141  * Append **?lang=…** to the download link address for both releases to strip unused translations (e.g. **?lang=de** will download JOSM in German language only).
    142  * **Note**: Use underscore to separate [[Translations|language codes]] with country code extensions, e.g. **?lang=en_GB**
    143  * Append **?unsigned=1** to strip the code signing information
    144  * When **lang** and **unsigned** are used the separation is a **&** sign like in **?lang=de&unsigned=1**

     151In most cases this means Java wasn't installed.
     152JOSM is tested and developed with Oracle JVM, therefore we recommend to get it from their [https://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp manual Java download site].
     153Keep your systems architecture (32 bit or 64 bit) in mind when choosing the installation. Java 64 bit is recommended for JOSM.
     154Note that ''Java'' is the common name for a product now called ''Java Runtime Environment'' or short ''JRE''.
     155In former years slightly different names were used.
     156Please avoid the page java.com/en/download because it has an automatic detection that can mislead you.
     157You do **not** need a Java-Plugin for your web browser to work with JOSM.
     158
     159If you still can't download or install Java, visit [https://www.java.com/en/download/help/troubleshoot_java.xml Oracles troubleshoot] page for more information.
     160
     161==== [Java Test] ====
     162Checks to see why JOSM is not starting on a system, examples are for MS Windows.
     1631. Download [/josm-tested.jar josm-tested.jar] to your desktop.
     1641. Open a Command Prompt aka Terminal
     1651. Type `cd %homepath%\desktop ⏎`
     1661. Type `java -version ⏎`
     1671. Now you should see three lines with Javas version data. If you see any other message, Java is not properly working on your machine.
     1681. Type `java -jar josm-tested.jar ⏎`
     1691. Now you should see JOSM starting up.

    161184
    162 ==== VM selection on Windows x64 ====
    163 
    164 For Windows, beware that some browsers may install their own JRE only in 32 bit mode, but may also install their version of the Javawebstart tool somewhere else with different file associations. This may cause your JNLP to start with this alternate JRE because it runs the wrong version of Javawebstart which only supports the 32 bit VM, and sometimes is built with a restricted support for VM options and a max VM size not exceeding 256MB.
     185==== VM selection ====#VMselectiononWindowsx64
     186
     187On current versions of MS Windows by default Java is installed mainly in the `C:\Program Files\Java\` directory. Additional parts are placed in `C:\Program Files\Oracle\Java\`. There `.\javapath\` is the target for the PATH environment variable and virtual home for the three files `java.exe`, `javaw.exe` and `javaws.exe`.
     188
     189The three paragaphes below deal with older versions of Windows and Java.
     190
     191For Windows 64-Bit, beware that some browsers may install only a JRE 32 bit mode, but may also install their version of the Javawebstart tool somewhere else with different file associations. This may cause your JNLP to start with this alternate JRE because it runs the wrong version of Javawebstart which only supports the 32 bit VM, and sometimes is built with a restricted support for VM options and a max VM size not exceeding 256MB.
    165192
    166193Check, for example, if there's no other javawebstart in {{{\Windows\SysWow64}}}. You should not need it (the Java control panel will not detect it) and can safely delete it. Perfom cleanup and only keep the latest version of the JRE (1 for the 32-bit mode, another one for the 64-bit mode).

    185212If you get an error saying "'JOSM.app' is an application downloaded from the internet." you can bypass this by **right-clicking on JOSM.app** or josm.jnlp and selecting 'open'. You should then see the same message but this time with an option to "Open" regardless. This is only necessary on the first run of JOSM.
