MapInfo Pro v16.0 is here!
Tom Hello MapInfo Pro users, The big news this month is that the English release of MapInfo Pro v16.0 is available! See below for a link to the free trial. We covered the new interactive thematic mapping capabilities in the previous issue. In this issue, you can check out the WMTS support in the article below and more!
We are also hosting our first ever global online MapInfo Pro Meetup. See below for a link where you can get more details. I hope you join us!

In addition, the Developer Dojo is opening its doors to application development with the MapInfo Pro Raster SDK and Mustapha Mudasiru, a UK based Technical Support rep makes his journal debut with an article on using the Update Column command.

There are other events going on too (both live/in person and virtual), check out the side bar to the right. Thanks and good mapping!
