Highlights of the MapObjects 2.2 release include support for visual studio .NET (VB.NET and C#); new sample applications and useful documentation for getting started with MapObjects in Visual Studio .NET; tracking layer smoothing; improved projection engine (along with new formats); enhanced labeling; and elimination of the separate end user license and fee requirements previously required to read GIF and TIFF/LZW images.
