Late Monday, software giant Google released version 7.1.1.1871 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 7.1.1.1871 requires an Intel-based Mac running Mac OS X 10.6 or later to install and run.
