The November version of JOSM is now available (a bit late) as version 7777 :)

You probably have already seen that we have now a great new logo! It has been designed by Ilya Palikov (Diamond00744), who won our logo contest (see results here).

Thanks again to everyone who participated to this contest, it has been a very difficult choice for us, especially during the final phase where we had to choose between two brilliant designs.

It took us several iterations before reaching the final winning design, Ilya has made a nice “making-of” on DeviantArt: Apart of the new logo, here are the release notes:

Really nice! thanks to the JOSM team for steadily improving JOSM and thanks to all artists who contributed to the logo contest. I think if you would use one of the big banners as background for the JOSM splashscreen it would look awsome. I would prefere the banner of Felis Pimeja for this.
