iD v2.2.0 was released May 9 2017 and is now available for editing on openstreetmap.org <http://openstreetmap.org/>

This is possibly our biggest release ever because it includes over 100 features and represents about 3 months of work by 13 contributors, and countless other translators and testers.  Thank you to everyone who made this possible!  ❤️
📣 Release Highlights

🛰 Two new global satellite imagery layers: DigitalGlobe Premium and DigitalGlobe Standard!
These new layers cover many parts of the world that previously had no usable imagery.
Check out the new imagery by opening the Background pane (shortcut B)

👉 A new right-click editing menu replaces the old radial menu.
The new editing menu gives iD room to grow and won't get in the way of your editing.
Remember: Right-click on map features to use the new menu.

👩‍🎓 The introductory walkthrough has been completely revised, covering more OpenStreetMap concepts and common editing tasks using the new right-click menu. Users can explore and practice editing in the example town - now much better mapped than before and completely localizable. Even long time iD users should give it a try!
Replay the walkthrough from the Help pane (shortcut H).

🚦 Big refresh of icons! You'll see a lot more icons for commonly mapped features.
Map traffic signals, stop signs, benches, crossings, street lamps, fountains, towers, and many more.

✍️ You can now see and edit changeset tags before uploading to OpenStreetMap.

The complete changelog is pretty epic, and can be found here:
