In my Google Apps Standard Edition account this evening, Gmail for my domain sudeenly switched to the themed version (using the "Default" theme). As of this writing, there's no Themes page in the settings, and stranger yet, not all accounts at my domain are showing this behavior; only the "oldest" one has it.

I'm guessing this will be announced shortly once it works generally and theme selection works. But in any case, a lot of folks will be happy to know that themes are coming to Apps accounts Real Soon Now.

Still no Themes settings page as of this writing, so it is probably in a phased rollout stage. Hopefully this isn't just a fluke; of all the accounts on that domain, only my personal one, which was the first one created, has this change so far.

Yep, definitely being rolled out now. The themed variant just showed up in two other of my Apps accounts (on different domains, one of which is fairly new). Now once there's a way to choose a theme, all will be well.

I can confirm that I've got this theme in my Google Apps account too but that the Themes settings page doesn't work yet.

Sometime in the past 1/2 hour it hit my main account.... I don't really like their default theme so I'm anxious for the control panel.

Yes, I see it too now (as of today).. I found it to faster, more snappy..
It will be nice to modify themes...

Yup, showing up here now too. I check the Settings page each day hoping for the Themes tab to show up. I expect they're wanting to see if the default theme breaks anything before unleashing the full set of themes.

I'm still waiting for my old Google Apps Gmail accounts to be switched to new version. Seems every new Google Apps i open up for a client has the Labs features except that of my own business Google Apps account.

Something's afoot. The buttons (Archive, Report Spam, Delete etc.) along the top and bottom of my Google Apps mail have changed style.
