New versions of all three products have been released over the past couple of days.
MileCharter v2.10 and RouteWriter v2.7 both add support for Windows 7 and improved license key handling in multiple-addin environments.
MPSuperShape v1.7 also adds support for Windows 7, in addition to support for the StyleMap tag during KML import. As well as some minor import/export bug gixes, v1.7 also adds the ability to export freeform shapes as all closed shapes, or all open lines.
The MapPoint Team at Microsoft is conducting the first ever survey of customers to see what they want in future versions of MapPoint!
This is a good sign -- although there there have been several enhancements (especially the changes in the most recent version, MapPoint 2009) the product's functionality for users wanting to do business mapping has not changed much since MapPoint 2002.
I'm sure you have some thoughts - share them to help shape future MapPoint releases
