As of today, the data have been updated in Natural Earth Data. Through the hard work of many dedicated people, this public domain map dataset continues to be updated and remains one of the best sources for tightly integrated vector and raster data to make beautiful maps. According to Nathaniel Von Kelso, one of the principals working on the project "Natural Earth has been downloaded more than 250,000 times and is closing in on 1 million page views since launching in the final month of 2009." Here's a link to a full list of features and edits in this release. Congratulations to all who have contributed and who have used this data set to make beautiful maps!
