You made me Google even more, Mark! 


 From one of the hyperlinks:

However, because of the way Kepler operates, the data needed to find such an Earth-like planet requires three to four years of watching each of the potential stars with orbiting planets.

So, I would think they had the data, but concluded its findings now?

It is a one minute video.   I am sure there are other sites out there.
