Yahoo! Maps gives Flash the Boot!

Straight from the Yahoo Developer Network, Jason Levitt informs us that Yahoo Maps is now using pure JavaScript instead of a hybrid of Flash and JavaScript. If that wasn't enough, he also informs us that a new version of the Maps AJAX API will be available next year! Read the full post below:

You'd hardly know it by going to maps.yahoo.com, but Yahoo! Maps are now pure JavaScript instead of a hybrid of Flash and JavaScript. Lead Maps Developer Mirek Grymuza and the Maps team have done an amazing job of seamlessly moving the Maps client over resulting in at least double the performance of the previous Flash-based version.

The good news for developers is that the new Yahoo! Maps client uses an enhanced version of our Maps AJAX API which will be available to developers in 2008. This substantial upgrade of the Maps API will provide access to all the overlay components available in the consumer client and will give developers significant overlay flexibility. It's going to be a great new year for Yahoo! Maps users and developers.
