New ArcIMS Design Tools

The new ArcIMS designer tool looks great. The older Java tools have never really been updated in years. The new Designer is based on COM (I assume?) .NET and creates some really slick maps. It blows the Google Maps AJAX client out of the water and you can even use Visual to create these maps. ArcIMS 9.2 is going to be a huge release and you won’t recognize the look of the maps created using it at all. I can’t wait to get into the ArcIMS API and see what new interfaces we can create.
