Imi had started JOSM "versions" but they quickly became a farce;
everybody working with a "numbered version" (aka stable) was always told
to throw it away and use the latest nightly build at the first sign of
trouble, and every now and then he would increse the "version number"
and make a blog posting about all the "new" features since the last
version - features that everyone had, by that time, been using for months.

So there is a scheme behind all this madness ;-)?
