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)
