Hello all,

We have just announced that we will be discontinuing investment in VE3D.  In the short term, the 3D view will be removed from bing.com/maps.  The 3D control itself will continue to function, and data will continue to be served to it.  The support will continue until December 2011, and during that time it will still be in the AJAX map control (version 6.3) for 3rd party use.  I will personally continue to monitor the comments sections and the contact link, so you can keep sending me questions.

Thanks for all the great comments, feedback, and questions over the last two years.  It’s been a lot of fun and I’ve really enjoyed working with you all.

Here is the announcement:
