Cool! So it's seems I'm not the only one who's started to see the Googlebot in his dreams after all... :)
Just joking. In fact, the mighty G'bot was wandering across my web site again yesterday and today.
Of course, by the end of the month the GoogleEmpire will probably forget all about me again - after all, they have over 10,000 e-mail messages a week to cope with.

I can see the feature now...
Include only pages that
( ) are minty fresh
( ) are lemony fresh
( ) are pine woods fresh
( ) are musky
( ) taste like chicken
( ) contain no preservatives
( ) have that new car smell
I suppose if Google decided to read CSS it would be possible to bring up pages with the same color schemes, font styles, etc. An amusing way to waste bandwidth, perhaps. :)
Also SEO crafted pages that never change because they are proven SERP winners and can't be changed...
Freshness - now add that to the increasingly long but effective equation of text analysis + pagerank/linking + spam detection - and Google may place themselves a further step away from their competitors...
I think so, judging from Dr. Eric Schmidt [cnn.com]
As a rule, we don't preannounce new features. But the most important one coming up is more recency added to the search index. When I started at Google, the company was out of date, on average, every two weeks because the crawl was a monthly cycle. We want to get to the point where Google is updated on a daily basis.
We are working on algorithms to detect which sites are having high traffic or high page rank or high change rates. We want to make sure those pages are as current as possible.
Not exaclty new, but it looks to me like an indicator of Google having more than just "Fresh" and "Maybe Stale" listings. Once a week would be good for a lot of sites.

As we talked about back in november(?), make sure your server supports "last modified" or you might not taste minty fresh to GoogleBot.
