We are excited to announce the release of a major upgrade to the UMapper WordPress Plugin that brings the full richness of UMapper functionality into the WordPress environment. If you are looking to add interactive maps (and map games) to to your blog we highly recommend you give our plugin a try.
You might have noticed that the branding of Microsoft maps in UMapper has been changed from Virtual Earth to Bing. The change is due to the launch of a new search engine Bing.com and the rebranding of Microsoft maps. The logo update is the first of many changes to come, and you can read more on the subject here.
We are working closely with the Bing team to ensure the transition goes smoothly. All changes will be rolled out automatically and there is no action needed on your part. That said, we are still going to keep you posted on our progress.
