"google earth 188.8.131.52"
So far I don't see anything different in the new version. Maybe because I don't use all the bells and whistles. It has run well for me the past couple of years and I use it a lot for checking bicycling routes.
If I give a route a name I already used it shuts down and I lose both route datas and have to reenter them.
