    Getting the following error when trying to submit to Bing:

    We were unable to add your sitemap because:

    In 0.1.8, coming out in a bit, you'll have the option to disable images in your sitemap, after which it'll work properly with Bing.

    Hi, I was having the same problem with Sitemaps vs Bing, and solved it by disabling the images...

    I'm surprised to see that's the solution: Bing can't process images in sitemaps (I'm sorry if that's a dumb question, I started blogging one week ago)?

    Since the same sitemap was also being sent to Yahoo and Google with images, and no problems, would that jeopardize my rankings with them?

    Perhaps in future versions you could generate a searate sitemap just for Bing, preserving the images for others. Just a suggestion, of course, I love your plugin, and already gave it a 5-star rating.
