There is new imagery starting to appear in Google Earth. Only a few places have been located so far, but there are certainly more out there.
[UPDATE 25-MAR — The “updated areas” KML file is now available. Download it here.]
As is often the case, you can use Google Maps to determine for sure whether or not a specific area is fresh. This new imagery isn’t in Google Maps yet, so you can compare Earth vs. Maps to see what’s new; the fresh imagery is already in Google Earth, but the old imagery is still in Google Maps. If you compare the two side-by-side and they’re not identical, that means that you’ve found a freshly updated area in Google Earth!
