  • 6/30/14 - Three exoplanets from 2 host stars have been added to the confirmed planets tables (i.e., published info, and KOI info). This brings the total to 980 exoplanets from 418 host stars.

  • 6/27/14 - The Kepler Objects of Interest (KOI) dispositions and the condition flags have been updated. The number of planetary candidates has been reduced by 21.

  • 6/12/14 - The Kepler Objects of Interest (KOI) table has been updated. 19 new KOIs were added, almost 300 more stars now have planetary candidates, and only 18 KOIs are now flagged as "Not Dispositioned". The "condition flags" were also updated.

  • 6/12/14 - A new version of the Kepler Archive Manual is now available describing updates to FITS keywords, quality flags, PDC description, and MAST tools.

  • 6/2/14 - Twelve exoplanets from eight host stars have been added to the confirmed planets tables (i.e., published info, and KOI info). This brings the total to 977 exoplanets from 416 host stars.

  • 4/21/14 - A new "habitable-zone" exoplanet, Kepler-186f, was added to the confirmed planets tables (i.e., published info, and KOI info) This brings the total to 965 exoplanets from 411 host stars. The condition flags have also been updated.

  • 2/27/14 - 715 exoplanets have been added to the confirmed planets tables (i.e., published info, and KOI info) and 60 have been removed for various reasons (see removed targets). This brings the total to 964 exoplanets from 411 host stars. The condition flags have also been updated.

  • 12/10/13 - MAST search forms will now resolve Kepler IDs as a target name if it represents an observed target. Names can be entered in a form such as: kic1026032, 1026032, kplr1026032, kepler1026032, or kplr001026032. Kepler planet names can also be resolved when entered in a form such as kepler-7, kepler-32b, etc.
