Virtual Earth 6 - new map 'shading'

Microsoft Virtual Earth 6 has been released - along with various different improvements to the "UI" (javascript and the controls that drive it), one noticable difference is the addition of 'topographical shading' in Road view. Here's the Golden Gate Recreation Area 'before' and 'after'...

Of course, now uses the new tiles - visit San Francisco and switch between (road) and (roadshade) views.

Seems to be available "down under", but only to zoom '13' and no closer...

(thanks to via windows live and Darren Neimke for the heads-up)
