New Google Talk Client

Sat, Apr 1, 2006

If you haven't heard yet, we shipped a new version of the Google Talk client to a small set of testers yesterday.  You can get a review over at  Hopefully we'll fix any outstanding issues and get this version out to everyone soon.

I wasn't super involved in this version but did manage to sneak a couple of features in.  The first was Friend Online notifications (defaults to off to avoid annoying people). I also did the new hover cards for your Friends.  I wanted people to be able to see all of the cool pictures in true 96x96 pixel alpha blended glory.

We hope you like it!  Let us know what features are important to you by filling out our suggestion form.
