iD v2.4.0 was released August 25, 2017 and is now available for editing on openstreetmap.org <http://openstreetmap.org/>

📣  A few highlights from the release:

NEW Esri World Imagery layer:
Esri has made their World Imagery Service available for OSM use!

NEW fields on the save screen:
   • Added a checkbox for mappers to request for someone to review their edits.
   • Added a Source field to allow users to add multiple sources.
   • Added a Hashtags field to allow users to add multiple event hashtags.
	- Hashtags can also be set via the API from a Task Manager or Q/A app.  
	- Hashtags are automatically extracted from the `comment` field.

NEW changeset tags for improved changeset analysis
   • `review_requested=yes`  (“yes” if the user has checked the box)
   • `source=*`  (semicolon delimited, e.g. “survey;gps")
   • `hashtags=*`  (semicolon delimited, e.g. “#MissingMaps;#Tanzania”)
   • `changesets_count=*`  (number of edits the user has made, will be “0” for someone making their first edit)

  Walkthrough tags, will be set only if a user has made <100 edits:
   • `ideditor:walkthrough_started=yes`  (“yes” if the user started the walkthrough)
   • `ideditor:walkthrough_progress=*`  (semicolon delimited, e.g. "welcome;navigation;point;area”)
   • `ideditor:walkthrough_started=yes`  (“yes” if the user completed all walkthrough sections)

   • iD can now schedule deferred work in modern browsers with requestIdleCallback, (contributed by Kushan Joshi).  
This means big speedups in parsing, loading data from OSM, and rendering.

   • Added presets for many theme park attractions (contributed by Willie Marcel)
   • Added preset for `amenity=shower` (contributed by JamesKingdom)
   • Added preset `emergency=life_ring` (contributed by JamesKingdom)
   • Added presets and icons for railway mapping Buffer Stop, Derailer, Milestone, Signal, Switch, Train Wash (contributed by JamesKingdom)

...and more!
