It seems that www-cw now is the only datacenter with the old index. This may among other things mean that www-cw will serve you a cache, that may be several weeks old. www3 and www2 should both give you the new index, while www from time to time may give you the old index from www-cw.
Don't put too much weight on the cache.
Yes, I think it is generally agreed that this was an undramatic update. Maybe partly because it seems that the new index to a large degree already was anticipated with small updates by freshbot.
My 6-week-old site has still not been deep-crawled. Last month it was deep-crawled on 4th January and ended up a PR0 (no external links at that point.) Am I right in thinking a PR0 site will be among the last to be deep-crawled? (My main page is now PR5 on www2 and www3, thanks to freshbot.)

before this i was in the index and had 0 placement in the first 10 serps. now i have the top 1-3 spots on page one.
thank you everyone here for the advice.
hopefully i can build out the site more and focus on some other keywords that i would like to hit.
Thanks for your feedback. I'm amazed that my PR5 reflects the deepcrawl from the first week in January! I had only three links at that point: one from a PR7 shared among 20 links, and one from PR5 among 600, and one from PR5 among 35. Could that give me a PR5? How certain are we that PR is not influenced by freshbot activity throughout the month? Just curious...
Does Google sometimes not re-index sites? If so, why would that be? (both are well-linked and have the correct robots metatags).
Or is the index still going on?
it ist like this:
two days ago -> old index
yesterday -> new index
tody -> seems to be the old index again.
i am really getting nervous about this, is it normal or is it just me who is out of the index?
btw, i'm located in germany, but did the search from google.de as well as from www.**** in all 7 datacenters.
I'm getting really confused with the latest update. We had the latest titles, descriptions etc. on our sites showing on www2 since the dance started and several sites were listing higher than before. Last night though, everything reverted to what is was in last month's results. Has the dance finished now? If so where did all our new stuff go...?
