Another updated version of Google Earth has been released!

The new version is available at: <a href="http://earth.google.com/download-earth.html">http://earth.google.com/download-earth.html</a>

<b>Changes between Sept 17th (.0616) and Oct 20th (.0693)</b>


- 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

On my dell laptop with geoforce 4 440 GPU and XP sp2, GE refused to start. I had to instal prior version of GE back :shock:
