Tiled is a general purpose tile map editor. It's built to be easy to use, yet it is capable of catering to a host of varying game engines, whether your game is an RPG, platformer, or Breakout clone. Tiled supports plugins to read and write map formats other than its own map format.

Release Notes: This release adds support for associating an image with a map object. Several fixes have also been made, including being able to move an object group and select small map objects, and references to external tilesets that are not in the same directory are now saved correctly. The minimum required Java version is now 1.5.
Release Notes: Support was added for margins around tileset images. The tileset manager was improved. A lot of fixes were made, including automatically adding extension to tilesets, saving/loading of layers with an origin, loading of object group properties, duplicating objects, increasing of firstgid of tilesets for Lua export, and saving of property values that contain quotes.
Release Notes: The main new feature in this release is the support for adding arbitrary objects to your map. Other improvements include the ability to create stamp brushes from the tile palette, import/export of configuration, an option to automatically open the last map on startup, the ability to refresh tilesets after they have been changed on disk, a live brush preview for the stamp brush, a docked tileset panel, and lots of bugfixes.
Release Notes: This release fixes some minor issues discovered after the 0.6.0 release. The selection is now correctly reset on loading a map, layer duplicates will have the same properties as the original, selecting map format by extension is the default even when plugins are loaded, and tiles can be added to empty tilesets.
Release Notes: This release fixes a huge amount of long standing bugs, has translations to Dutch, German, Italian, French, and Spanish, and adds a few new features. The most useful features are probably the new stamp brush functionality, and persistency of the palette window size and slider position. Some users may also like the new JSON export format, which is easier to load in certain languages.
