I have loaded the OpenStreetMap layer in QGIS 2.0, but would like to edit the properties in order to better complement the map I'm producing. I can't seem to find the OSM toolbar or OSM Feature widget that allows me to edit. Is this because OSM has been integrated into the core functionality of QGIS 2.0?
The old Openstreetmap plugin had the ability to edit and upload the data back to the OSM Servers. This was dropped, because the OSM editors are better, and keeping up to date with the OSM tagging would need more time than the plugin authors want to spend on it.
You can however change properties of the points, lines and polygons layers inside QGIS, as you do with every other layer.
The content of http://www.qgis.org/en/docs/user_manual/osm/openstreetmap.html is outdated. It still describes the old OSM plugin which was cancelled with QGIS 2.0.
