Microsoft released updates to Microsoft Virtual Earth AJAX control and a new version of the Virtual Earth 3D map control. Comes added a couple new methods for adding and removing pins (and DIVs) in the AJAX control; added performance improvements for AJAX and 3D; enhanced geocoding and parsing across the board (AJAX and Virtual Earth Web Service) and fixed a few bugs in the AJAX and 3D controls. The Virtual Earth 3D control will require an update! Download the latest from your favorite Virtual Earth-powered web site (such as Live Search Maps) and click 3D and you will be prompted to install the latest bits. The Virtual Earth AJAX map control SDK on MSDN has been updated to reflect all of these changes.
Here’s a quick list of the new features: Native Support for Internet Explorer 8; New Virtual Earth AJAX Map Control Methods; Geocoding and Parsing Improvements; Extended Local Listings; New 3D Control
