I see some changes when it loads and after a "save". I have looked at the WIKI but do not see any mention of the latest changes?

Anything significant changed?

You can always see the raw code changes on our trac website, but in brief, changes over the last fortnight include:

Saving and loading

  • Proper conflict management if someone else has been editing the same area at the same time
  • Unobtrusive 'floating' alerts (Potlatch 1-style) on save and changeset close
  • Press Escape to revert an object to the last saved version


  • New 'actions' menu by each relation in Advanced mode - makes it easy to move objects from one relation to another
  • Edit relations when multiple items selected

User interface

  • New loading screen
  • Press 'J' to join all selected ways (same as clicking the Toolbox icon)
  • Press 'Q' to make selected ways right-angled (same as clicking the Toolbox icon)
  • Drag ways when multiple ways selected
  • Fix autocomplete issues in Advanced mode
  • Don't allow users to set empty keys
  • Support for embedded video in the Help dialogue (not in use yet)

Other changes

  • Be more selective as to the bugs displayed from MapDust
  • Tag preset changes
  • Minor bug-fixes, drawing and efficiency improvements
