does anyone know if it is possible to search for ways created after a given date with the overpass-api?

A guy on the talk-it list suggested to use the query down below, and it seems to properly work for me!

out body;
out meta;
out skel qt;

Thanks to Andrea Albani

Vielen Dank. Das hilft mir weiter.

That's not working for me; this thing returns the object created and edited after a given date but I'm only searching for the object created after that date. thanks

I'm searching for the same exact thing but I cant figure out how to build that query. Is there anyone who can help us out? thanks

Here is a simple example using Overpass Turbo:
The newer filter selects all elements that have been changed since the given date.

same here; I'm only interested in objects created after a given date, the query shouldn't return the edited ones. thanks

I expect that you can extract the highways as they existed at two moments in time using Overpass Turbo, then open both in QGIS and get QGIS to display the difference. It may be possible to colour the difference according to whether the difference was added or extracted.

I expect you cannot extract a moment in time as mentioned above. Maybe the only way to do it is to get the planet file for particular dates http://planet.osm.org/planet/ Then extract the area you need using Osmosis http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Osmosis#Extracting_bounding_boxes Then compare in Qgis.
