In the past few days, we've made some changes to the Google Base data API that will allow developers to create applications that more smoothly integrate with Google Base.

One of the upgrades is that items added via the API are instantly searchable. This means you no longer need to wait an hour for them to show up in relevant Google search results pages. Now, after inserting your items, users may find them in their results for searches on relevant Google properties like Froogle, Google Maps and Google.com.

The other update is that we've expanded our offering of sample code to include PHP, Java, VB.Net, Python, JavaScript, and C#. You can find this code and associated documentation here. If your preferred language is missing, don't fret! We're planning to add more sample code in the near future.
