Unlike usual, we have actually received a change log for the recent Photosynth 1.1 update, and its seems this is one you don’t want to miss if you wish to continue using the app.

Apparently it shipped with a built-in expiration date, conveniently for the 20th June.

Topic: Windows Phone users must upgrade to v1.1

If you use a Windows Phone you may have noticed that there is already a version 1.1 of Photosynth for Windows Phone available in the marketplace, only two weeks after we shipped 1.0. Why the quick update?
To misuse my schoolboy latin, "wea culpa". The 1.0 version shipped with a safety feature that was only meant for our internal beta tests. It was 30-day app expiration logic, and it will mean that everyone who runs 1.0 on or after June 20th will receive the brutally simple message "Application expired". The application will then shut down.
We’ve updated our test cases to make sure that this one never gets past us again, but for you it means that to continue using Photosynth on Windows Phone, you *must* upgrade to version 1.1.
David Gedye and the Photosynth Team.
