Happy 2018!  I just released iD v2.6.0 yesterday..


*๐Ÿ“ฃ  Release Highlights*

- ๐ŸŽš  *You can now adjust imagery brightness, contrast, saturation, and
sharpness.*
(Not currently available in Internet Explorer or Edge)
*Try enhancing the background imagery by opening the Background pane
(shortcut โ€œB") and adjusting the slider controls.*

- ๐Ÿšซ * iD will now prevent users from drawing many self-crossing lines and
areas*.
See issue https://github.com/openstreetmap/iD/issues/4646 for examples and
more info.
You can override these checks by holding down the Alt/Option key while
drawing.

- โ†•๏ธ  *Features with a direction-type tag will display view cones
indicating the directions they face. *
This is useful for mapping features like street signs, traffic signals,
billboards, security cameras, and more.

- ๐ŸšŠ  *Transit-related presets have been updated to support Public
Transport v2 tagging schema. *
Many presets have new icons too, to better match the mode of transport
(tram, light rail, trolleybus, etc.)
*Try mapping some transit platforms, stations, stop positions, etc.*

- ๐Ÿ“–  *We've completely refreshed the in-app Help content in iD. *
Huge thanks to Manfred Brandl, Minh Nguyแป…n, and our many volunteers on
Transifex for their work on this!
*Check out the new help texts by opening the Help pane (shortcut "H").*


There are many many more presets, usability improvements, and bug fixes
included too.
Iโ€™m really proud of the work weโ€™ve been able to roll into this release, and
I hope everyone takes a look at the changelog.
About 20 people contributed pull requests, many of them are first time
contributors:  Thank you!  ๐Ÿ™
