Hi All,

On June 30th 2017, Microsoft will pull the plug on the v6/v7 Bing Maps
controls and APIs

https://blogs.bing.com/maps/June-2016/Bing-Maps-V8-Web-Control-Released

When Microsoft pulls the plug, this will break Bing Maps support currently
in Fusion.

Fusion has already been updated to use the current iteration of Bing Maps
and the changes backported, however no accessible release of Fusion has been
made that has these changes incorporated.

So I've decided to put out some new builds of Fusion that has these changes
(and many months of fixes and minor enhancements). You can download these
builds for your respective version of MGOS below:

2.6: http://download.osgeo.org/mapguide/fusion/fusion-2.6.2.zip
3.0: http://download.osgeo.org/mapguide/fusion/fusion-3.0.1.zip
3.1: http://download.osgeo.org/mapguide/fusion/fusion-3.1.1.zip

To install, unzip the contents to the www directory of your MGOS install.
Rename or remove the existing fusion directory before unzipping.

You can also check out the respective SVN changelogs to see what else has
changed:

2.6: https://trac.osgeo.org/fusion/log/branches/fusion-mg26
3.0: https://trac.osgeo.org/fusion/log/branches/fusion-mg30
3.1: https://trac.osgeo.org/fusion/log/branches/fusion-mg31

If you want to continue to use Bing Maps in Fusion, you will now have to
apply for a new API key in the bing maps portal

https://www.bingmapsportal.com

With this key, put it into the top-level extension property named BingMapKey
in your Application Definition document and point it to your respective
template in this build to use the current version of Bing Maps. If you use
the hybrid base layer type, you will have to change the type to
AerialsWithLabels.
