Google Earth 5

I downloaded Google Earth 5, unaware it was a beta, had problems with it and uninstalled, planning to await the finished product. Anyone know if it's out in non-beta form yet and is anyone using the beta with no problems?

This seems to be the non-beta version

The latest download on the Google Earth website is a Beta version.

That's the version posted by Sea Urchin, no doubt with good intent.

However, I've used Beta versions of Google Earth in the past and had no problems with them.

certainly with "good intent" but clearly failed miserably - apologies to thumbscrew

Thanks both, still a Beta I see. I'll wait a bit longer, I had a performance with the beta.

Google Earth 5 appears to be out of beta and also an add on here: file: click here
Impressive add on, but is it wise to have this info available?

My version is 11733.???? Seems very stable,,,, how does one tell if it's beta or not ?

I downloaded it as an Update, not knowing that it might be beta,,,, I also helped my son to download a fresh copy to his, which again, seems very stable.

I believe the Beta Version's include the word Beta.

I am using V. 5.0.11733.9347 Build date May 5th 2009.

When I click on Check for updates on-line, it says there are no updates at this time.

I have never had problems with any version of G.E.

Mine is: 5.0.11733.9347

No mention of Beta on their d/load page now, so assume it is out of Beta
