Filter wikidata items by type

In Denmark a ton of objects of archeological interest etc was imported to wikidata (example: tumulus), which in some areas makes it difficult to spot (other) interesting items. That's why I'd like to have a way to filter these.

Also it could be good to be able to filter Museum artifacts, Things that no longer exists as well as events.

Wikidata items already linked to OSM objects could be good to filter too. --Hjart (talk) 01:18, 7 May 2018 (UTC)

Hi Hjart, sorry for not replying earlier. This sounds like a good idea, I'll add it to the list. Especially things that most of the time don't belong into OSM (events, no longer existent items, …) should be hidden by default. --Floscher (talk) 13:41, 28 May 2018 (UTC)

Switching between language

Until recently the wikipedia plugin offered the option to easily switch language, allowing to query english WP, german WP, swedish WP etc. This was something I did quite regularly and since the option disappeared I have really missed it. Can we have it back?

Hi Hjart, thank you for bringing this up here. The option is still there, it just moved to the settings in order to reduce the number of buttons in the Wikipedia toggle dialog. In the upper right corner of the dialog you should see an icon like this: JOSM Images preference.png . It opens the settings to change the Wikipedia language. --Floscher (talk) 07:38, 12 July 2018 (UTC)
I did find it. It's just quite a bit more cumbersome than it used to be.--Hjart (talk) 18:45, 12 July 2018 (UTC)
Hi. I actually didn't find the new location until today and don't find the new location all that intuitive. Can it be moved up next to the Mapillary tab?--Hjart (talk) 08:23, 3 August 2018 (UTC)
