Saturday, March 8, 2014 adds a 1000 a day plus 450+ new record indexes

If anything, is accelerating the addition of new records and indexes. The announcement came yesterday on their blog as follows:

Our pursuit to bring all of the world’s historical content online free forever is growing even stronger. Today alone, we are adding more than 450 new record indexes in addition to the 1,000 databases that we usually launch every day. These indexes include 25 million names from a variety of countries including the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. 
The post goes on to explain:
Since October, we have added more than 150,000 databases to our existing collection, revealed revolutionary technologies (including handwriting recognition, transcription, and photo detection tools) and worked with organizations to digitize offline collections - all with the ambition to help our community make more discoveries than ever.  
The total number of collections has risen to 280,671.
