Alex Barnett points-out that as part of yesterday's upgrade to Local Live that Microsoft also made some API-side updates to their Virtual Earth Map Control. Useful enhancements include geocoding (address lookups including ambiguous addresses), driving directions with polylines, and GeoRSS support for encoding location data into RSS. In addition, there's a new SDK.

For good coverage of the core product release see TechCrunch.
