I bet they just used the wrong new logo like Google Finance:

Or perhaps not...

<< Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Docs and Google Talk — both enterprise and consumer versions — are now out of beta. "Beta" will be removed from the product logos today, but we'll continue to innovate and improve upon the applications whether or not there's a small "beta" beneath the logo. >>

<<We get asked all the time why Google keeps its products in beta for so long. And Gmail, five years after launch, is consistently a subject of this questioning, even of jokes.

Some people thought that once we opened sign-ups, Gmail should have come out of beta.>>

It feels so empty without the beta tag there.

The Google Apps Google Mail logo looks like there's still a bit of Beta:

Cached:


blogoscoped.com/fles/more/goog ...



And the Back to Beta labs setting does nothing in Google Apps.

Oddly the Back to Beta feedback group linked from Gmail Labs says it doesn't exist despite the page title clearly saying "Back to Beta | Google Groups":

groups.google.com/group/gmail- ...

:O My precious Gmail is out of beta? Must.....enable...... back-to-beta labs!

Part of me is thinking "about time!" and part of me is sad that the beta has come to an end :)

I can only find 3 products (other than labs) that are still in Beta. Product Search, Orkut and Knol.

:O What's happened? EVERYTHING is leaving beta!

On top of your 3, these products are still showing the Beta logo for me:

Alerts google.com/alerts
Custom Search google.com/cse
Google Health google.com/health
Patent Search google.com/patents
Scholar google.com/schhp
Pack pack.google.com

(Docs & Talk are still showing the beta logo for me too.)

Okay, so the "Beta" tag didn't disappear *right* when they rolled these new logos out, but I knew there was a reason they created non-beta logos for all these services :-p

Yes, this is where I saw those: blogoscoped.com/files/more/goo ...

Perhaps those will drop the "Beta" tag too?

Today, Google announced that its various enterprise applications—Gmail, Calendar, Google Docs, and Google Talk—work well enough to no longer be prefaced by the beta appellation
