The Virtual Earth blog today announced the release of version 6 of its VE SDK. The new SDK is available online on MSDN as well as the interactive SDK on http://dev.live.com/. To get the new version, all you need to is change your ashx link from http://dev.virtualearth.net/mapcontrol/mapcontrol.ashx?v=5 to http://dev.virtualearth.net/mapcontrol/mapcontrol.ashx?v=6, it’s as simple as that.
So what are some of the highlights of the new version?
- Safari support
- Bird’s eye pushpin accuracy
- Multipoint routing
- Plus lots more.
I would really recommend heading over to the VE Blog as they have a very extensive write up about all of the new features in this release. Don’t forget how easy it is to use the interactive SDK. And for those who really want to get deeper into VE, I would always suggest ViaVirtualEarth or the MSDN Forums.
