I really hope they reconsider their decision to drop the SOAP interface – having stuff on the server-side ends up being really, really, really useful.

I think google should keep the old Soap as the Window XP can run the software at Windows 98.

Many site use Soap, if Google stop it and use new, will bring many troubles to the users.

Thanks for the post Philipp. I will see if I can get some comments from Google about this. I will let you know if I find anything out.

I did get some feedback directly from Google. The source was a "Google spokesperson" (this is what they asked me to say about the source). Here was their feedback:

"Google does have a SOAP Search API, though we stopped accepting new sign-ups last December. We're concentrating our resources on the AJAX Search API, which offers easier integration with web applications; unlimited queries, with eight results per query; and support for other Google services such as Video, News, Maps, and Blog Search. As for the future, I can't comment on specifics, but we'll continue to listen to developers' feedback and try to build features that address their needs."
