Is a Gmail update coming down the pipe?

Reports suggest today that Google is testing a new version of Gmail.

Gmail may be getting a long overdue user interface (UI) update soon. Gmail's interface has been essentially the same since it launched more than three years ago, so it should be interesting to see how the update looks.

According to Garett Rogers over at ZDNet, Google has been asking users to translate snippets from the new UI through their Google In Your Language program. The users were asked to translate the phrase, "Newer Version," for a service called Gmail UI.

There aren't any specifics on what exactly we will be seeing in the upgrade yet, but maybe we will be seeing the rumored offline functionality with Gears.

I guess this means that we can pretty much forget the possibility of Gmail ever dropping the beta tag.
