  Hi all,

  With this new plugin, you can now work with Yahoo satellite images inside JOSM, the same way the applet or the flash editor does. It is a port to java of the perl script that Frederik Ramm made a couple of months ago, so it uses the same approach: spawn a browser window that asks Yahoo the images using its API. However, this plugin works in windows too. 

  To use Yahoo imagery, follow this steps:

  1.- Download and install YWMS from [1].
  2.- Download and install/update WMS plugin from [2]. IMPORTANT!!: upgrade if you already have this plugin.
  3.- Activate both plugins in JOSM and restart. 
  4.- In preference settings, Yahoo tab, set the path to firefox executable, the name of a new profile for firefox and click  "create". This opens a new browser window. Click "Make changes" and accept the question. Close the browser. 
  5.- Go to your favorite area, and click the menu option "WMS -> Yahoo" .
  6.- Enjoy

  Any modern Gecko browser ([3]) should work, not only firefox. However, I have only tested firefox (>1.5.)
