Google Desktop plugin to search Google Earth files

Google have released a plugin for Google Desktop which allows it to index and hence search Google Earth data files.

This was announced via a Keyhole bbs entry. After installing the plugin, any KML or KMZ files created or updated will be indexed - though as the readme states, existing files of these type will not be automatically crawled (though you can force them to be found by adding their location to the directories to be explicitly crawled).

It's author is Davis Eustis who appears to be a new hire - at least he hasn't made any previous posts to the Google Earth BBS.
