Yahoo’s search crawler Slurp will be moving from its previously identified address at Inktomi to crawl.yahoo.net. This makes Slurp more identifiable with Yahoo! than as a property of a subsidiary. I don’t think there are other changes that need to be done by webmasters apart from adding crawl.yahoo.net in the list of domains to get access to networks (although I still made sure by asking Priyank Garg, Yahoo! Product Manager for Search, regarding it).
The bigger news though, should be about Yahoo! announcing it’s “infinity and beyond” unlimited free email disk storage.

Way to go, Yahoo!
