MUC in Gmail?

I have noticed today, that the Gmail chat allows me to invite others to the conversation. I think that was previously possible only using the flash Gtalk client. Too bad it is not a real Jabber MUC.
Did Google release the feature in phases and I just got it or is it really new?

<< Update (4:59PM, June 9th): Bad news: we discovered an issue with the new chat design that impacted a small number of Google Apps users. Rather than have them experience problems with chat, we've pulled back this change to fix it. We plan to have this out again in the next week or so — thanks for bearing with us. >>

Their deviation from the jabber standards worry me... and i'm even more worried about how they'll do milti-user video chat. Hopefully it will be muji-compatible but that wll require proper jabber MUC
