Release notes for Snowglobe version 2.0

Snowglobe 2.0 is a new rebased version of Snowglobe, off the Viewer 2.0 code base. The source code and required bundles for development (artwork and libraries) are available for download.

However, at the time of this writing (April 29 2010), Snowglobe 2.0 does not yet contain all the Snowglobe specific features that the Snowglobe community has been adding to the Snowglobe 1.x viewer. Thanks for your patience while we're adding those back to the Snowglobe 2.0 code base.
