Great! I was hoping OWL would resurrect itself at some point.

Love the 'show previous geometry' & colour coding for emended tags.

Things I've noticed:
RSS gives this error: We're sorry, but something went wrong.
Scroll bar Gets 'stuck' as I move it down & some of the lettering 
doesn't scroll (Firefox  17.01, Shockwave Flash 11.5 r502) Appears to 
work OK in IE (Haven't got Chrome)
When I click on an entity the pop-up balloon sometimes obscures it 
making it hard to see the changes in geometry. Could the balloon be 
positioned further away or make it movable?

Could the permalink be designed to display the history side-bar?
Open click-able pages into new tab as default (personal preference)
Instead of having the 'next page' icon could a continuous scroll be 
employed (similar to how twitter gets older messages)?
When hovering the mouse over an edit in the History bar the entities for 
that edit dim to a light shade. Wouldn't it be better if it was the 
other way around & all others dimmed while the edit your interested in 
were emphasised (something similar to the way relations are highlighted 
in Potlatch)?

Thanks for a superb tool that will save a lot of time for checking edits.
