Does anyone know if Google plans to offer other AdSense formats?

I'd love to see them open up the 728x90 format, for one. AdWords seems to support it. (If you look around on Google's site, you can see this format for yourself.)

What other formats would be useful?

It seems that 728x90 is already there. Try modifying your AdSense code as follows:

google_ad_width = 728;
google_ad_height = 90;
google_ad_format = '728x90_new';

Bam! You've got 728x90. I don't know where this came from, but it seems to work.

Try modifying your AdSense code as follows...

That's a pretty blatant violation of Google's AdSense TOS. It might be wiser to wait until Google offers that format through AdSense.

Yeah, that doesn't seem like such a good idea.

I'm sure if you did that more than a few times, Google would remove you from participating in the AdSense program.

yes its really important to read the TOS. normally any violation of a legally enforceable TOS means that all bets are off, and Google may legally be able to cancel payment. If you really want to do this, or change any of your agreement, you should really write to google and get a written agreement (if they agree) to cover yourself.
