Today we released Maps API version 2.160, which contains a massively
rehauled version of G_SATELLITE_3D_MAP. Major changes include:
- Support for all common map overlay types (markers, polylines,
polygons, ground overlays, screen overlays, GGeoXml).
- Seamless transitions when switching between 2D and 3D map types.
Currently known bugs with the new release include:
- On Mac OS X, there is noticeable lag while panning and zooming and
while opening placemark balloons (info windows).
Note that the usage of G_SATELLITE_3D_MAP and GMap2.getEarthInstance
have not changed.
