for testing issues only (i use FF) is spotted this different layout on PicasaWeb using IE7..
first, it gives you a message:
picasaweb.google.com/DavidHetf ...

and then, the new upload layout, which is called – "Upload Control" :
picasaweb.google.com/DavidHetf ...

oh, BTW..
the "upload Control" is a drag & drop uploading method.. and your upload is not limited to 5 uploads only and one upload per photo (you got multi uploading)

There were three answers in my previous comment...

>> Since launch?
Yep

>> youre sure?
pretty sure

yep

And it doesn't appear on the "New features!" page because it's not new.

When you are prompted to install the ActiveX control, it indicates that the cab file was signed on 5th June 2006. This is a few days before Picasa Web Albums first went publically live.

Yes, I can confirm this has been available since launch.
