EarthDesk replaces your static desktop picture with an animated, real-time rendered image of the Earth, continuously updating in the background while you work. The software supports eleven different map projections, political and satellite views, and renders accurate sun, moon and city lighting. This second generation release offers vastly improved performance and efficiency with preemptive multitasking, higher quality maps and full multi-display support.

- Fixed a bug that could prevent evaluation under MacOS X 10.1.5.
- Fixed a potential crash in the Robinson map at zoom levels under 100%.
- Desktop pictures which are tiled patterns are now restored properly.
- Correctly restores desktops which change pictures periodically.
- Fixed a bug that could cause the license key to not be saved.
- If the application file is renamed, it will no longer fail to launch.
- Changed the command for "Set Home Location" from Cmd-H to Cmd-L.
