This is a list of all plugins available via the in JOSM integrated plugin manager. See the Plugin changelog to keep track of major changes to all of these plugins.
Note for plugin developers: If you wrote a plugin and want JOSM to find it, it should be enough to add the plugin to the OpenStreetMap Subversion Repository (SVN) and it will automatically appear on this page. If you cannot put your plugin into SVN then edit this page and insert a link to your plugin jar file into the page; after a few minutes your plugin will be downloaded and the MANIFEST file will be used to extract information for the table below.
