Google Earth .0693

About 3 minutes ago, a new version of Google Earth was released... See below for an excerpt from the changelog.


- default Cache path moved to Local Settings (accomodates roaming profiles and avoids backups)
(note, upgrade installs will _not_ be moved)

- Creating overlays now respects the aspect ratio of original image

- "Save As" uses feature name by default

- 3D models now have better lighting

- When reloading an identically named file, a "Don't Ask Again" option is offered

Bug Fixes
- Embedded icons failing in kmz loaded by network link

- Filled clamped polygons Intel graphics cards now draw correctly

- unclamped floating lines now z-buffer correctly with polygons

- drag-n-drop of text in URL keyfield would (rarely) crash

- some obscure crashes after long runs

- "Wind Guru"-related crash

- custom schema regression: newlines missing from output in description balloon

- upgrading installation might cause new GE to open maximized the first time

- embedded web window "pop-out" now respects default browser

It seems as though it's still not available for download. It will probably be ready shortly.
