Almost unnoticed: Bing Maps 3D is dead

I was trying to re-visit the SpeedTree trees in Bing Maps 3D, but strangely the 3D interface of Bing Maps has disappeared. Then I found  this announcement on Bing Maps Blog.

Many comments express their concerns about the discontinuation of the 3D control, SDK licensees seemed totally surprised that 3D control is discontinued without a replacement or replacement announcement. Has Mircosoft given up to compete with Google Earth?

  1. Bing Maps Blog now corrected itself that their announcement was not about the end of Bing Maps 3D but only about the end of the former Bing Maps 3D navigation based on ActiveX. Bing Maps 3D will continue, but based on Silverlight instead of ActiveX. That´s how I understand the latest Microsoft notes, but I will double-check that.
