Virtual Earth Map Control v6 is available

Details here.  One of the things that may not be obvious is that the new control is backward compatible with v5.  If you have a built your solution on v5, then you can update your script reference to get all the perf enhancements in the new control!  All you have to do is change on line of code from (for example):

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://dev.virtualearth.net/mapcontrol/mapcontrol.ashx?v=5"></script&gt;

to

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://dev.virtualearth.net/mapcontrol/mapcontrol.ashx?v=6"></script&gt;

    I can confirm that simply changing the version from 5 to 6 is working fine for me. Please be aware that some people where using the wrong URL syntax for V5.

    I just published an article on the changes in Version 6:

    The viawindowslive site now has 2 videos showing the 3D models and 3D tours on maps.live.com, the getting started article for Version 6 and now this "what is new".
