The cold observation phase is finished since August 26. 94 % of the sky was scanned and 5000 pointed observations were done. Now the mission moves in the warm observation phase.
AKARI produces two new infrared all-sky catalogues

Two new infrared catalogues, containing more than 1.3 million celestial sources, are made public today. The AKARI All-Sky Catalogues, based on the first all-sky infrared survey in more than a quarter of a century, will provide important new data for a wide range of studies that cover topics ranging from the properties of nearby stars, to the formation of planetary systems, and the star formation history of the distant Universe.

See the ESA press release at:
The May 2010 volume of astronomy & astrophysics has lots of papers on Akari results. For free access at this moment!
