Tip: How to update to the latest code revision of Visitor Maps
Sometimes I add new code to the current WordPress version download even though it is still version XXX

Here is how you can use it today if you do not want to wait for a new version:
On the WordPress plugins admin page, find “Visitor Maps and Who’s Online” and click “Deactivate”.
When the plugin is deactivated, the visitor data and settings are still saved in the database.
Do NOT click “Delete” or your data and settings will be deleted!

Use a FTP program such as FileZilla to connect to your web server.
Delete this folder from your server: /visitor-maps/
You can find it inside /wp-content/plugins/

Automatic upgrade:
On the plugins admin page, click “Add new”
Search for “Visitor Maps and Who’s Online”
Once you find it, click “Install Now”.
After it installs, click “Activate Plugin”.
The plugin will now be activated.
Upgrade complete, now you can enjoy any new features or fixes I most recently added.

Manual upgrade:
Download the “Visitor Maps and Who’s Online” zip file:
http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/visitor-maps.zip
Unzip the file on your computer.
FTP File Transfer this folder: /visitor-maps/ from your downloaded
files to the folder on your server: /wp-content/plugins/
On the plugins admin page, find “Visitor Maps and Who’s Online” and click “Activate”.
The plugin will now be activated.
Upgrade complete, now you can enjoy any new features or fixes I most recently added.
