PietschSoft.VE: Is it Dead? What about Ajax and Virtual Earth v5?

Is PietschSoft.VE Dead?

I've had a couple people ask me lately if the PietschSoft.VE project is dead since there hasn't been a release in about 2 months. The answer is: No, it isn't dead, I just haven't had alot of time the last few weeks to work on it.


I am actually still working on adding full Ajax support, using UpdatePanels as the enablers. It is turning out to be pretty cool.

Virtual Earth v5
