[josm-dev] Plugin installation without restart

Hi,

Since version r8024, JOSM can load plugins at runtime. This means that 
after installation, there is no need to restart the application, but the 
plugins can be used immediately.

There is a guide [1] on how to get your plugin ready to support this new 
feature. The good news is that there is usually nothing or very little 
to change, but it still needs to be tested. Please help with the 
adaption! We have more than 100 plugins, so this is too much work for 
just the core team. :)

If you fix a plugin, please mention it in ticket #11090 [2], which lists 
all the changes that have been made so far.
