Google Releases New Version of Sitemap Generator Tool

A new version (v1.4) of the Google Sitemap Generator Tool is now available according to Vanessa Fox from Google Engineering.

She writes:

This version has the same features as the last one, but fixes a subtle bug in writing GZip compressed Sitemap files. The old version stored more path information than it needed to when it created GZip files, and this was a point of concern for some webmasters.
