G is for growth
Storage is an important part of email, but that doesn't mean you should have to worry about it. To celebrate our one-year birthday, we're giving everyone one more gigabyte. But why stop the party there? Our plan is to continue growing your storage beyond 2GBs by giving you more space as we are able. We know that email will only become more important in people's lives, and we want Gmail to keep up with our users and their needs. From Gmail, you can expect more.

We're not in the plains anymore
Fonts, bullets and highlighting, oh my! Gmail now offers rich text formatting. And over 60 colors of the rainbow. Discover a land of more than just black and white. Learn more
Currently my gmail is:

You are currently using 345 MB (26%) of your 1314 MB.

There seems to be other new google things about too, a Taxi-finder for the US, for instance.
They seem to time produce releases for April 1st to cause confusion

Okay, I know Gmail itself was announced @ april 1st. But there is still a chance this is an april fools joke.

If this is an april fool's joke, it's a very bad one.

It's not like anyone's been leaping for joy -- "Finally 2gb!! Because 1000mb is sooo little"

It isnt a joke, but it is amusing how they are doing it.
They are giving you like 0.01MB more every minute or something.
Theres a clock counter thingy on the main www.gmail.com page.
