Picasa Web Api updates

Google Data Api's posted a few updates today, a few of which I've really been looking forward to; Community Search, Retrieving a user's recently uploaded photos, Retrieving recently added comments for a particular user, Searching a user's photos, Filtering by tag, Uploading non-JPEG photos, Downloading the original photo.

(my fav) Downloading the original photo: You can now download the original photo, including all EXIF data. This is accomplished by retrieving the feed with the imgmax=d query parameter and value This will return a feed where the media:content elements reference the original downloadable image.

It's nice not having to use a backdoor for this anymore
