Server work complete

Dear WorldWind Community,

The WorldWind server work announced in January is now complete. We are pleased to announce that, in addition to retiring old services, we were able to substantially improve performance on some of the existing ones. The service that saw the most substantial performance improvement was the elevations service.

We hope that you will notice these performance improvements in your WorldWind-based applications. As always, feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.
