When logging into Gmail this morning I realized a small message on the top saying “Five new features”. I didn’t expect to much, because mostly those new features aren’t very useful to me. But this time they added something I would love to see in my regulare evolution client: If you are reading a message or responding to a message and meanwhile another message for this thread arrives, a small window will pop up and inform about the new message. With the click of a button you can then update the current view.

You can find an overview of all five new features in the Gmail help. By the way: Gmail has been made available to everyone, so you do not need to look for someone sending you an invitation if you want to signup now.
