Ladies and Gentlemen,

finally I am proud to announce the first release candidate of JOSM.

Download: http://www.eigenheimstrasse.de/josm/josm-rc1.jar
Manual: http://wiki.eigenheimstrasse.de/wiki/JOSM/User_Manual

Some new features to the beta:
- upload of nodes and segments (the server does not implement tracks yet).
- full support of undo/redo until of all changes made during the current
- merge downloaded data into your existing (without loosing the changes,
of course)
- be able to fast add line segments by dragging the mouse cursor and
pressing space to create each segment. See the user manual for more

Features you already love from the beta2:
- Add, Edit and Delete nodes, line segments and streets
- Full Key/Value support
- Different Layers of raw GPS - data
- Complete, standard-conform GPX import/export
- OpenStreetMap Api 0.2 XML import/export

One note before you start hacking: Please be carefull with massive changes
and the upload feature. This version is to be tested by all your volunteer
beta testers. I did not find any futher bugs, which does not mean they are

Then enter http://imi.dev.openstreetmap.org/api/0.2 as Server-Url into the

Ciao, Imi.
