Gmail 2.0

Ok, this is front page news. Amidst the announcement of Leopard's 2 million plus sales in its first weekend, Google actually managed to steal the thunder. Google is apparently announcing the next gen , or the next version of Gmail. Google had announced their interest in releasing a
user-friendlier Gmail on Analyst Day. The details are on this link here.
Some folks are able to see a link near the Settings link on their gmail Page which reads: Newer Version. The URL is which would point to the newer version. But apparently, and as expected, it doesn't work for me. My Gmail ID is still not Version 2 ready. Or for that matter IMAP ready as well (I am not over it yet. I feel so deprived.)
How long will I have to wait for this one?
