I just checked the Nokia Maps website and you can download the Maps 2.0 for your N95 - without the Beta sign.
Nokia Maps

The new installer file (SIS) version is 1904. The last Beta file I downloaded 2 weeks ago was 1803.
When you install it it shows version 2.05

I didnt find updated NZ maps though with the Map Loader just the latest 12.5MB one.

indeed, but it's all relative... if the NZ data had come out ages go (instead of this month) we probably wouldnt feel so exited about it.

Cool

any noted differences between 2.0 and 2.05, Aloha? i'm guessing not but any teeny tweaks perhaps?

Nothing so far. Still testing. :)
But I was expecting new maps for NZ as the Auckland ones are not that perfect (roads on water, etc) :(
And someone promised 23rd May as a release date with correct maps, which is today.

The head of the Nokia Maps team just posted the following on the Nokia Beta labs Blog.

Nokia Maps 2.0 is now ready to graduate from beta. Since it was announced back in February a lot of work has been done to correct bugs, improve and add new features.

Thanks for all the comments and constructive feedback! We have been reading carefully each and every comment and many of the improvement made to the final Maps 2.0 come from your input, for example:

“Difficult to see what licenses I have purchased” – we added a “My licenses”.
“7 digit Postal Codes does not works in the UK” – works now.
“Difficult to find how to plan a route” – new flat menu structure makes this easier.
“I walk faster than GPS can keep up” – increased the GPS frequency
“Cannot zoom to see route overview in navigation” – added manual zooming
“Show longitude and latitude” – added in Details view
Etc.

The main new feature since the beta is Network based positioning. It will position you really fast, usually within 5 to 10 seconds. It works indoors, on a bus or train.
Network based positioning cannot be used for navigation since it is not accurate enough. However it works just fine for showing where you are (roughly) on the map. A pink circle in the map shows the accuracy of the position. When GPS fix is achieved, this is used instead of the Network based position, and the pink ring disappears.
Network based positioning is now enabled on all A-GPS enabled devices. (E90 users need to install new software update that will be available soon).

In addition to new features and functional improvements, we have expanded the navigable countries with New Zeeland, Venezuela and Chile. You can use Map Loader to get the latest maps.

Maps 2.0 is graduating from beta labs. Check it out on maps.nokia.com!
