I am impressed. Google really tries hard to improve their products. And it already is available in German, French, Spanish, Italian, Ungarian and more.

Absolutely not new
this tab appears only where there are "bugs" or "errors" according to the mediapartner bot for adsense ;-)
When the bot can't access to some pages for example ;)

As my screenshot shows, I can also see it even though there are no errors.

Yep, now this tab appears for everybody, if there is errors or not. That why I wasn't suprised.

(I remember this tab appeared when, by mistake, I let a Adsense on a password protected page)

This must be part of their new aim to open information up to webmasters. I wonder if the sitemaps team worked on this?

This is kinda interesting ... as Google seems to have decided that if your Adsense Publisher ID is on a page, then you are (kind of) the "owner" of it and shows if there are any problems.

I.e. an increasing phenomena I've seen is "revenue-sharing" where Publisher ID's are rotated on a page. If that page has an error, who exactly who should be notified via the Adsense Diagnostics?

I.e. is this more a "we could not find a targetted ad for page XYZ" ... or a "we could not crawl page XYZ for some reason" and if the later, doesn't this just totally replicate what sitemaps already does ... and note that forces you to "prove" you are the site owner.

Yeah Dan that occured to me, this is basically sitemaps isn't it? But obviously it is a neater place to have it.
