MapHeroes and MapInfo Professional v12.5! 
Survey Hello everyone! The big news is that the 32 bit MapInfo Professional v12.5 has gone to production. You can download the 30 day trial by clicking here. We provided an overview in the issue last month. Now it is time to start digging into some detail. You will find an article on the new Layout Designer below as well as additional information.

I really need to extend a big thank you to the MapInfo Professional Engineering Team. They have really pulled together to deliver the release. Their work isn't done yet as they are still hard at work on the 64 bit version which is scheduled for October.

We have also announced the winners of the MapHero contest. To see the winning maps, check out the article below.

The MapInfo 2014 Tour marches on. For those of you in Australia be sure to check out the dates for the forums this year

Also, just a quick note that we will take our annual break from publishing the journal in August and will resume with our next issue in early September.
