|MapForums Newsletter - July Recap|
edition of the newsletter includes summary of activity on MapForums
during the month of July, 2008.
The biggest news is that we will be shipping MapPoint 2009 North America with our MapPoint Power Tools Spreadsheet September 1st.
MapPoint 2009 information has now appeared on Microsoft's web site (click banner above to the right) including a list of New and Improved Features (scroll down). Of course most people will want the new version for the updated street/cartographic and demographic data, but the new GPS / Navigation features and sleek modern interface will also appeal to users.
The price is the same as MapPoint 2006, there is once again a retail SKU with GPS, and nothing has changed in the API so there should be minimal if any intervention needed to adapt existing programs or swap MapPoint 2009 into applications integrated with MapPoint. Our first article about New Features in MapPoint 2009 was published yesterday along with a couple other new articles which will be announced in an upcoming MP2K Magazine Newsletter. Links to all of the articles and the discussion area for the articles is here.
Probably the second biggest news is that we have launched a MapForums Plus membership option which includes Data Downloads and also includes access to updates of the MapPoint Power Tools spreadsheet. A six month subscription is included with MapPoint 2009 if you order through us or a three month subscription can be purchased for $19.95.
More information and MapPoint 2009 ordering page.
MapPoint 2009 Europe is expected to be available in 2009.
Finally, MapForums shot past 20,000 posts in this past month! Thanks to everyone who has made the board in its various forms a success over the years. In the interest of achieving 100,000 posts sometime during my lifetime, we will be awarding free three-month MapForums Plus memberships or extensions to whoever writes the most posts each month during the rest of the year.
Listed below are all the topics/threads which were started -OR- replied to during the month of July sorted by the number of replies with the thread having the most number of replies on top.
