The Nokia Maps server has a fresh folder of maps, which includes maps for nine countries not covered by the previous versions of Nokia Maps.
The new countries are:
(Asia) Jordan, Philippines, South Korea, Vietnam,
(Africa) Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia, and Swaziland.
The new maps are only for the latest version of Nokia Maps, Nokia Maps 2.0. They might work with the beta test version, but I only tested them with the latest final release of Nokia Maps 2.0 from maps.nokia.com. So there's a good reason to update.
Nokia's Map Loader is still a piece of badly coded software, and it's stil not compatible with Linux or Mac. But you don't need Map Loader or the overhead of .net framework 3.0 that comes with it. You can still get your maps straight through your browser with the Nokia Map Loader Alternative, which doesn't require you to install anything on your computer.
