The April release of JOSM is now available as version 7000 :)
As said before, this version is the last tested version compatible with Java 6. Future development snapshots will very soon become Java 7-only. The next tested version, at the end of May, will also work only with Java 7.
Like for the previous migration (Java 5 to 6), this version will remain available on JOSM website for several years, so if you're stuck on Java 6, you will be able to download it again if needed. The only concerned systems are old Macs (those running OS X 10.6 and earlier). Java 7 is available for all other platforms, including Mac OS X 10.7 and later.
For more details about Java 7 migration, see here.
Due its special status, we took great care of delivering an "extra stable" version this month, so it does not contain a lot of new things apart bugfixes, here's the changelog.
- Last release compatible with Java 6
- Add Monte Mario Projection (Italy)
- Change of system of measurement in map status
