See What's New in Map Suite 6.0
Map Suite 6.0 represents a leap forward for developers, with many improvements over previous versions of Map Suite. We've fully integrated the new features that have been available in our daily builds and brought other enhancements and bug fixes to the table. Version 6.0 represents a must-have upgrade for all .NET developers of Map Suite!
Here are some of the standout new features in every edition of Map Suite 6.0:
And there's lots more besides, including these great features from individual product editions:

To find the change logs, first click on the product that interests you and then scroll down to the "Change Logs" section. For example, here are the change logs for Map Suite Desktop Edition.
Upgrading to Map Suite 6.0 is free for customers with a current Software Assurance Plan! Those of you who are still evaluating Map Suite can also get a free upgrade to version 6.0 of your evaluation edition.
If you're already using Map Suite, don't forget that you can install Map Suite 6.0 alongside your previous version and associate your projects with either one.

Beginning with today's release, Map Suite moves to an annual release cycle. Whereas previously we had issued a major new release in May and a largely stability-focused release in November, we have eliminated the November release and will instead be focusing on delivering continuous bug fixes and updates throughout the year via the daily builds.
Our next major release of Map Suite is due in May of 2013 and will bring with it a host of new and oft-requested improvements, some of which we're hard at work on right now -- and which you will soon get a taste of in the daily builds.
You can visit our Enhancement Tracker to vote for or tell us about the features you want to see in Map Suite 7.0. Did the feature you wanted not make it into Map Suite 6.0? Don't worry -- we may yet include it in a future release! Let us know how important a feature is to you by adding your voice to its discussion topic in the Map Suite Enhancement Discussion forum.
Many thanks to the developers in our Map Suite community forums who have helped us test, debug and improve Map Suite for the 6.0 release. Our recent focus on deploying new beta features through the daily builds has been very successful and we intend to continue this practice going forward. Should you have any questions or suggestions for future improvements, let our developers know by posting your comments on this blog entry, or in the support forum for your particular Map Suite product.
We're already hard at work on Map Suite 7.0, the next major refresh of Map Suite that's scheduled for release in the spring. In the meantime, please enjoy working with Map Suite 6.0 and feel free to post your comments, questions and remarks on this topic, or send them to us directly at email@example.com.
Thanks for choosing Map Suite for your GIS development needs!
