JOSM doesn't work in the newest versions


until some months ago, I could work with JOSM without any problems. The last version working correctly at my PC (running under OpenSuSE 13.1 and Gnome) is 10526.

Under 11427, I literally cannot do anything any longer.

If I try to download data, I get a java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.openstreetmap.josm.gui.MapView$LayerChangeListener. The same happens if I open a file for editing.

It seems to be such a fundamental error that I think it is probably related to my local installation rather than anything else.

At work – where I use Windows – everything works as it should.

Before raising a ticket, I'd like to ask here: What do I do wrong resp. what can I do?

That's probably some outdated Plugin. Check this post: … 64#p624064

(Translation: Rename plugin directory and try again)

The Weekly OSM newsletter attempts to provide a high level summary by reading various mailing lists. Valiant as this volunteer effort to read and curate headlines is, the time has come to use technology in addition to community management techniques to aggregate and to connect the global audiences.
