Google Plans to Expand Image Ad Program and Other AdSense News

I just noticed a few new items on the Google AdSense site.

First, Google will be expanding it's image ad program.
We'll be accepting animated GIFs from a small test group of advertisers, and you'll be able to display these ads on your pages! The new ads will still adhere to the 50KB size limit...

Second, AdSense now supports more languages.
Users can now search in 21 languages, including Czech, Hungarian, Slovak, Russian, and traditional Chinese.

Third, the introduction of URL channels.
URL channels allow you to track the performance of individual pages, or groups of pages, without having to update your ad code.
