Just wanted to pre-announce that the next version of iD (coming sometime in March) will have a new menu!
Here’s a picture:  https://twitter.com/bhousel/status/835607333640232962 <https://twitter.com/bhousel/status/835607333640232962>

We don’t often change iD’s user interface, but we felt that iD was starting to outgrow the “radial menu”, and it was time to move to a more traditional right-click context menu.  The new edit menu will only pop up when the user right-clicks, so it will not get in the way of editing as much as the old menu did.  Also by switching from a circular shape to a vertical bar, we are less constrained by the number of items that we can add to the menu.

Details about how the work came together over the past month, and screenshots can be found here:

Thanks to Kushan for much of the code, and Rasagy for the design work.
