At long last Photosynth has joined the social Web. We're happy to announce a much requested feature: sharing synths to Facebook. Every synth and pano viewing page now has a "share to Facebook" button.

Click it, and you'll get a wall posting that looks very much those produced by every other Facebook-aware app on the Web. Welcome to 2008, Photosynth :-)

Some Important Bug Fixes
In the update we shipped today we also fixed a few serious bugs that many people had reported. (Thank you!)

  • The "x" to delete a synth from the "My Photosynths" page was sometimes missing. It's back now, so it's once again obvious how to delete one of your synths.
  • We tweaked the presentation of "zoomed-in highlights" (see here). We made sure that we never crop any of the parts inside the box you select in the editor.
  • Our forums had a bug whereby postings less than a day old would always show as being written "moments ago".

That's about it for this update. Watch for all your great panoramas to be published to Bing Maps in the next Bing Maps update, coming soon.
