I concede that they don't have to release, that wasn't really my thinking. AC didn't say they had to release because of license, for all I know it may be some corporate charter or warm fuzzies that compels them. I genuinely don't know.
I guess I am trying to say I don't know why this is news. As far as I am aware, they have released all previous versions, like AC said. The page seems to imply such.

" e.g. Having an extra data field to specify the level of precision (country, state, county, city, block, etc.). "38N 97W" is much different from "38N 97W, plus or minus 1500 miles".

Their API has a field for that. It's an enum that defines precision.. The datum for US is algorithmical centre of the US. Unfortunate for the farm. Maxmind should probably move it.

What you can't really forgive is application developers that ignore this field in their implementation or otherwise not displaying dp/sf info to the end user

Agreed. Religion is just not a consideration in some peoples lives. Atheism is not a consideration in some peoples lives.
Atheism seems to have it's own type of religion. A cult with an agenda.
I think that most people who are classed as Atheist are in fact something else. Let's call it Notgiveashitist, no, wait... Meh-ist.
