  • Bug fixes are seldom listed here (although a major part of each release are bug fixes). See the link SVN log messages of milestone YY.MM at the end of each chapter to search for fixed bugs.
  • Changes of external resources (Presets, Map Paint Styles, Validator Rules, Imageries and Plugins) are not listed here.
  • The JOSM related changes noted on osm trac are not listed here as well.
