I'm currently using r1741, r1738 has a bug where it crashes if you have no plugins loaded.

However I rebuilt a copy of the old WMS plugin because it doesn't work with low-res yahoo imagery now, and then I remembered you can pull old versions from SVN.

I can keep uploading copies of my validator plugin if you want, and remove the need for running a later version by adding my code into older versions.

One thing with the validator plugin I can't seem to fix is when 2 ways share the same nodes, if one of those 2 ways happens to be an ABS boundary, but this should probably be an error as each way should probably have it's own nodes.

The JOSM developers have basically forced anyone wanting to use JOSM and download any plugins to upgrade, because they don't pull various revisions of plugins that match the JOSM build from their server. This is an over sight I'm sure, but yea, you will have to upgrade at some point due to this bug that no code will be back ported for, although I should file a proper bug about it if no one hasn't already.
