Happy Summer!  🕶
I just released iD v2.9.0 this week and it’s now available on openstreetmap.org <http://openstreetmap.org/> for editing.  If you use street level imagery you will like this...

📷 Bing Streetside now supported
iD now includes a layer for Bing Streetside!  This new layer provides 360-degree panoramic imagery across large regions of the United States, United Kingdom, France, and Spain. Many thanks to Jubal Harpster and the rest of the team at Microsoft!
Activate the Bing Streetside layer by opening the Map Data pane (shortcut F)

This pull request includes more details direct from Microsoft clarifying the terms of use for mapping with Bing Streetside: https://github.com/openstreetmap/iD/pull/5050 <https://github.com/openstreetmap/iD/pull/5050>

🚸 Mapillary Traffic Signs refresh
iD also made some changes in how we process icons, which resulted in a welcome refresh for the Mapillary Traffic Signs layer.  We’ve switched from PNG to SVG, so the icons look much clearer, we support many more signs, and the traffic sign layer is now supported in all browsers!

As always, the update includes several other usability improvements and new presets - check out the changelog for all the details.
