As they’ve done a few times, this imagery appeared first in Google Maps, and as of now still hasn’t arrived in Google Earth. You can compare the two programs side-by-side to see if a specific area is new.
Depending on the city that you check, you’ll need to be aware of a few things. Tucson, Arizona is a great example; in Google Earth you need to turn off the “3d imagery” (under Tools –> Options) to see the base imagery, and in Google Maps you can’t zoom in too far or else you’ll hit the 45 degree imagery (which was captured at a different time).
