June 16, 2010 -- Lawrence, KS - ThinkGeo has released version 4.0 of Map Suite, its full line of GIS software components for .NET developers. This is a major update bringing support for some of the latest technologies from Microsoft, support for Google Static Maps API version 2, and many more of the most often-requested features from ThinkGeo's customer base.
The 4.0 update includes new builds of all of Map Suite's major editions, including Desktop, Web, Silverlight, Services and Geocoder Editions, as well as the Routing Extension that generates turn-by-turn directions. It's also the beginning of a new six-month release cycle for Map Suite, which ThinkGeo says will bring its users more rapid improvements, a faster turnaround time on bug fixes and quicker addition of user-requested features.
Other additions in version 4.0 of Map Suite include the new GraticuleLineLayer, support for a 100% managed projection library, improved drawing performance in Desktop Edition, new animated panning and measurement tools in Web Edition, a new IPMatchingPlugin for Geocoder, new sample applications across the board and plenty of bug fixes in every product edition.
Also introduced today is Map Suite WPF Desktop Edition, a brand new GIS software control for .NET that is specifically focused on development using Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) technology. The new WPF Desktop Edition allows for better rendering speed, panning and zooming transition effects, and supports multi-threaded drawing for increased performance versus the standard Map Suite Desktop Edition GIS control.
