New Beta Version of Google Earth (3.0.0693)

Google has quietly released a new beta version of Google Earth – version 3.0.0693. I’m told this version is largely focused on bug fixes and robustness. (Perhaps Google is getting ready for going out of beta with Google Earth?) They have not yet made available release notes, so I can’t tell you what fixes and enhancements have been made. I will update this entry when I have more details. At the moment, you can download it by going here.
[Update 21-Oct-2005]
Here are the new improved release notes. As you can see, there are not many new features. My favorite is the image overlay option now respects the original image aspect ratio. Some people are probably not going to like the change in directory for the cache, but maybe you can still point to the old one if you need to.
