Have any of you adsense publishers noticed a slight update to the home screen on the new adsense interface (v3)? Looks like they changed the earnings display and payment information to one screen. Looks good!

Yep, I seen it change a few hours ago. I quite like the new change; it puts a fair bit of information right on the homepage which is always good to have.

Only had it one day last week, then turned back to the "usual new interface". I liked it.
It displayed exactly what I wanted to see on my home page (day earnings, month, payment info and some other stuff) everything ok, but without some css styles (text, titles and h's in black). I even pressed F5 several times to see if there was some error but no.

Yes, saw it this evening in the UK but it changed back to the previous "new interface" an hour later.
I like seeing yesterday's earning on the home page - as it's one of the first things that I check every day!

I love it! Lots of info at a glance.
Though I don't think we need two question marks explaining what "estimated earnings" means when that whole section is for estimated earnings.

I saw this new interface as well, very informative, but for me it lasted for few hrs only, it is now back to normal.
The new interfaced showed todays earnings, yesterdays, this months and previous months, as well as the next payment amount and date all in one screen.
It also gave me as option to set the performance summary as today, yesterday, this month or last month, and i could save this settings.
I had been giving Google feedback to enable this option from the time this new interface was rolled out. Seems to me they finally took in under consideration.

One thing i like to see is include daily earnings for the last seven days with day in small font.

Excellent. Best 'improvement' yet - it really is an improvement.

Not sure why they've added an extra step to the summary report on the main page. It used to be just a drop-down list, now you have to click "edit" first to get the drop-down list. I can't see the point since it used to remember what you had set it to anyway, without the extra clicks.

I think they read this thread. That interface is back, I like it!.

Remember when I asked for your feedback on the new AdSense interface? One of the main pieces of feedback was to have relevant charts showing on the home page. We listened and now will be showing you earnings for today, yesterday, and a few other measurements. See today's blog post for more info, and thanks so much for your feedback :)
Interesting to have "last month" and "next payment" beside each other -- gives an at-a-glance view of the adjustment from estimated earnings to finalised earnings.

ASA, Thanks, the new interface homepage is definitely a good one. It's great having that information right on the homepage.

I see it reflected in the mobile stats too, really solid feature.

One more comment on the new interface -- I think that the red warning box that comes up at the top of the home page (mine's telling me that unauthorised sites have shown my ads) is a great idea, but I would like a "close" option so that I can dismiss the message after I've attended to it. Otherwise I will eventually tune out the red box and might not notice if it's showing a new warning.

ASA I've been persuaded to switch now with the revised interface. The only additional thing I'd like to see on the home page is the average daily revenue for the current month.

Pagination of results has to go! Very annoying. Or provide reasonably large options. (Such as infinite!)
No sign of "both" option showing data by channel and day/date, major shortcoming. It's clear Google considers it undesirable to allow review of data on a daily basis over a large period of time, like a year. So now a publisher will have to snapshot data on a daily basis.
Most of the recent changes are trivial and cosmetic.
Impression statistics for CPM ads are meaningless. All we can see is how poorly CPM pays versus CPC. (At least for highly targeted content intensive sites)
The graphs are mostly eye candy. (Should be close-able!). We need graphs of all Mondays for the year, all Tuesdays for the year etc. (Typically done with Pivot Tables in spreadsheets.) Each day of the week ads so much noise to the data the graphs are mostly noise.
"Report Issue" has been posted for all these issues and more. I truly dislike losing functionality in the guise of the "new interface". It's mostly eye candy, sorry.
