There have been hints for a while that we were going to be releasing an API for Search this year, but we had hoped that it would stay quiet for just one more week. It didn’t and there is no reason to cry over spilt milk. The API itself will be released next week, but you can read about it now. The article is light on details, but we will provide more next week. Chandu Thota posted about the Virtual Earth APIs and did not skimp.
