    5034=== Manual installation ===

    5843On start-up, JOSM attempts to update the plugins
     44
    5945* if JOSM itself has been updated since the last plugin update. This is called the **version based update mode**.
    6046* if a certain period of time has elapsed since the last plugin update. This is called the **time based updated mode**.
     
    6248In both cases, JOSM offers to update the currently active plugins and you are advised to run the updates by clicking on **Update plugins**. You may also skip updating, but be warned, that installed plugins could be incompatible with the new JOSM version and that they might either fail to load or fail to work as expected.
