As Deir-el-Medina is outside the Valley of the Kings it's also outside the photo ban I think. Here is a photo from Paul Beckers showing new excavations (9th November 2009) on the path between Deir-el-Medina and the Valley of the Kings itself. Hopefully Paul might stop by himself and add anything else he knows about these new excavations (which at present look to be small scale).
As usual check out the full size original on Paul's Flickr. Paul got some really nice other photos, including the Tomb of Pabasa (TT279). As usual if you are interested in the Tomb of Pabasa the best site is Su Bayfield's Egyptian Monuments.
