Google Maps Street View Added to Maps API

It looks like Google Maps Street View has been added to the Google Maps API. The interactive 360 degree panoramic images that Google provides for a number of cities on Google Maps has, until now, not been available to developers to add to their Google Maps mashups.

The addition of Street View to the Google Maps API has not been officially announced but the Mapperz blog noticed some discussion about it on the Google Maps Group and have even thrown together a quick example Street View Map.

I've also thrown together a quick Example Map where the street view actually appears in the information window that opens when you click on the map. Both the Mapperz example and my own are based on examples and unofficial reference provided by The Blackpool Community Church Javascript Team
