Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I like to use the Mapnik and GPS traces imagery layer in JOSM, but they don't seem to get updated often. I have uploaded changes and GPS traces a couple of days ago that are already showing up on the main website, but they don't seem to be showing up in JOSM.

I'm assuming tile.openstreetmap.org (where JOSM is getting its tiles from) is not updated as frequently-- so how often does it get updated?

This is the same URL your browser uses, there is no special tile URL for JOSM. Instead the reason will be most probably JOSM's tile cache. You can flush it by deleting one of the following directories:

  • Linux: /tmp/JMapViewerTiles_username/
  • Windows: %TEMP%\JMapViewerTiles_username\

Or open JOSM's preferences and go to WMS/TMS -> settings where the Tile cache directory setting can be changed.
