    1111 * The JOSM editor is kept always in a releasable state.
    12  * Each night a new software is build (called latest) which can be used.
     12 * Each night a new software is build (called [[Download#DevelopmentVersion|latest]]) which can be used.
    1313 * As nobody (especially not a developer) is perfect these latest builds may contain more or severe bugs.
    14  * To reduce troubles we release approximately every month a tested version.
    15  * Before the tested is released, efforts are done to remove most of the known bugs and to complete translations.
     14 * To reduce troubles we release [[DevelopersGuide/Schedule|approximately every month]] a stable version (also called "tested" version).
     15 * Before the stable version is released, efforts are done to remove most of the known bugs and to complete translations.
    1616 * JOSM does not have a version number really (it is 1.5 for some years now), but uses the always increasing version of source code repository.
    1717 * The version watch line in JOSM startup page tells you what software versions are current and also tells you when an update would be recommended.

    1919What does this mean to you.
    20  * When you use the tested version, you have a very stable version of the software.
    21  * When you use latest you have always the newest features, but also the newest bugs.
    22  * Translations are constantly improved. There may always be missing strings, but usually you wont encounter many of them for the good maintained languages.
     20 * When you use the stable version, you have less software updates and a very stable version of the software. This is recommended for the default user.
     21 * When you use the latest version you have always the newest features, but also the newest bugs.
     22 * Translations are constantly improved. There may always be missing strings, but usually you wont encounter many of them for the good maintained [wikitr:Translations languages].

    24 Please remember: The core team of JOSM usually consists of 2-3 active persons each time. Including translators probably less than 10 persons work for JOSM regularly.
