New version of Gmail is already available in some Gmail accounts. If you see a link to a "newer version" at the top of the page, click on it and enjoy the new features:
- A new contact manager that will be shared with other Google apps (Google Docs, Google Calendar etc.)
Just to remind you, the previous gift from Google was a bigger mailbox's size.
Not all accounts got the new version, but during the next days I believe it will happen.
