Google Earth beta 4 released

A new, sexier, sketchup integrated version of Google Earth was released today -- looks great!  At first I was having trouble figuring out how to change the camera angle, but I eventually realized there are navigation tools in the upper right corner of the screen.

A new, sexier, sketchup integrated version of Google Earth was released today -- looks great!  At first I was having trouble figuring out how to change the camera angle, but I eventually realized there are navigation tools in the upper right corner of the screen.  To me, the program seems more responsive than the latest stable 3.x release.

In this new version, according to the Google Earth 4 download page:

  • We've released versions of Google Earth in French, Italian, German, and Spanish.
  • We've made improvements to our GPS support (Google Earth Plus only)
  • We've improved the terrain, so peaks and valleys are more realistic
