Late Monday, software giant Google released version 188.8.131.521 of its popular Google Earth program. The new version, a 45 megabyte download, adds the following fixes and changes:
- We have included another fix for the unified_cache_leveldb_leveldb2 directory filling beyond specified cache limits for some Windows and Macintosh users.
- Imagery no longer stays blurry upon zooming in when the cache is full.
- Font and tilt settings now stick between sessions.
- Balloon opens now display when recording tours.
- We have included UI improvements to Flight Simulator.
- When printing, the scale legend now displays correct distances.
- Collada models now display with uncorrupted textures.
- Polygons and image overlays now display correctly across the Antimeridian.
- We fixed an issue with certain GPU – driver combinations whereby no imagery displayed in the client.
- The time slider in Sun and Historical Imagery features now displays the correct Daylight Savings time.
- Performance and stability improvements.
Google Earth 184.108.40.2061 requires an Intel-based Mac running Mac OS X 10.6 or later to install and run.
