Microsoft made some updates to Bing Maps:

Walking Directions Now you can generate directions based on how you might drive from point A to point B or walk from point C to point D. There’s a limit of allowed walk of about 20 miles) and walk on freeways is not allowed.
Drag-able Routing Flags – if you want to add an arbitrary flag onto map to add a location to your route, you can now drag the flag in the directions panel (on the left) and drop it onto map. You can also drag flags around the map to recalculate/adjust your route.
Expanded Streetside Mini-map – with expanded size of this map across top of the Streetside image to take up with width of the screen. Now, there’s no way you’ll lose your bearings.
Application Gallery Redesign – First, separated the apps into two categories – “Staff Picks” and “All Apps.” You can also sort by a few different filters. By default “Recommended” apps are shown. You can also filter apps by “Newest,” “Title” and “Publisher.”
Local Search Enhancements – redesigned this experience and added “nearby” option for getting you to your decision faster. You can easily get details on restaurants, also see suggested nearby places to expand your search without having to make unnecessary, additional queries. One last thing the filters on the left hand side of category results page lead to 1-click filters of your results by price, atmosphere, etc. This leads to more informed decisions!
