I’m happy to announce a new stable version of Marble for Windows. Your favorite Virtual Globe comes with a shiny new installer with several improvements compared to the old NSIS based one: It’s smaller in size, allows control over which file extensions to associate and will do cleaner upgrades in the future.
- Marble 1.14.1 for 64 bit Windows Vista, Windows 7 and later
- Marble 1.14.1 for 32 bit Windows Vista, Windows 7 and later
Some features that were only available in Linux so far are now part of the Windows version. Among them is support for opening .kmz (compressed .kml) files and support for installing additional maps from within Marble. Please give it a try to explore some of the many great maps we cannot ship with the installer for space reasons.
We also included a preview version of the Vector OSM map which you can use to get a glimpse of the current big new development in Marble. Check out San Francisco or New York on street level to see it in action! Improving that map theme is the main focus of our small Marble team here at Randa, where we look into extending the coverage of vector tiles to the whole world while improving performance at the same time. We hope to get this ready for the first Android release of Marble Maps in September, stay tuned!
