New Version of Gmail?

Google Blogoscoped is reporting that they see a link to Newer Version in Gmail. I checked my account and i don’t see anything as of now. They also published some screenshots of this new version.

This new version seems to be faster than the old one and it has a better contacts manager.

When you add a picture for a contact, you can pick a file straight from Google’s Picasa Web Albums. Skipping the hard disk might seem like no big deal but we may see more and more of this in the online OS/ online office.

    I too don’t see this new version of GMail that you’re referring to, but those screenshots of yours look a lot to me like the new G Sitemaps.

    I’m yet to try it, but reading from the reviews, they could have taken some more time and released a much better version that includes skins, etc. :)
