Last week I was reporting on the release of a second RSS-fed theme for Windows 7, mainly the Bing Maps Aerial Imagery theme offered free of charge to Windows 7 Home Premium, Windows 7 Professional, Windows 7 Enterprise, and Windows 7 Ultimate users. Just like the Bing Dynamic theme that was released back in August 2010, the Bing Maps Aerial Imagery uses an RSS feed to update itself and get more images.

And that’s the news – the Bing Maps Aerial Imagery has been updated via the RSS feed and added four new images to its original collection of 14 top quality images. The four new images present:

If you would like to get the Bing Maps Aerial Imagery theme, you can grab it straight from the Personalization Gallery here. Please note that when installing this theme you will see a prompt that asks you to subscribe to the theme’s RSS feed. When presented with the “Subscribe to RSS Feed?” prompt you should click “Download Attachments.”

Here's a small preview of the Bing Maps Aerial Imagery theme for Windows 7.


The theme’s official description on the abovementioned Personalization Gallery goes like this:
“Get breathtaking views of the United States delivered to your desktop with this free Windows 7 theme that captures the best of Bing Maps aerial photography. Once downloaded, this dynamic theme updates automatically through an RSS feed.”

The abovementioned Bing Dynamic theme has been updated as well. It features two new images:

Hyacinth and tulip garden, Keukenhof Gardens, Lisse, Netherlands


Container ship being loaded at the Port of Los Angeles, California


Moving on, in the autumn of 2010, Microsoft rolled out Best of Bing Australia, a theme that features 16 top quality images that showcase Australia’s beauty. Earlier this month Microsoft rolled out Best of Bing Australia 2, a sequel that features koalas, crocodiles, cockatoos and some of Australia’s natural wonders.

Here’s a preview of the Best of Bing Australia theme.
