Hey everyone, I just released iD v2.7.0 and it’s now available for editing on openstreetmap.org <http://openstreetmap.org/>

📣 Release Highlights

• 🗺 We've added support for more background imagery from WMS servers. 
Thanks Martin Raifer and Guillaume Rischard for your work on this..
Press B to open the Background pane and see if new imagery is available in your area.

• ↪️ The turn restriction editor just got a big update!
	• Include nearby connected roads (with configurable distance)
	• Hover over a from way to see which paths are restricted or allowed
	• Add restrictions that span one or more via ways (e.g. divided highway u-turns)
	• Add `only_` turn restrictions (e.g. only straight on)
	• View popup help for more information about working with turn restrictions
Try selecting a junction node in a complex intersection, editing turn restrictions, and viewing the popup help.

And as always, many more presets, bugfixes, and performance improvements.


Developers, we need your help!
We’re starting to add Flow annotations to iD’s source code.  Flow is a type-checking system to help catch common errors in JavaScript code (an untyped language).  If you’re interested in learning about the iD internals or want to learn Flow, please help out!  This is a great task for anyone, from beginners to experts.
