New builds of Fusion to support new Bing Maps

Jackie Ng
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.
