Two weeks after their previous update, it appears that Google has just pushed out some more fresh imagery to Google Earth. Thanks to ‘hhgygy’ for letting us know about it!
As is almost always 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!
So far it appear to be a rather small update, and the imagery seems to be rather dark, but see if you can find any other updated areas.

- Greece: Athens, Heraklion, Matala, Viannos, Zakynthos — thanks ‘Andreas’
- Hungary: Budapest (just west of the city)
If you find any other updated areas, please leave a comment and let us know!
