Mihai Parparita a Google Reader Engineer posted a thread in Google Groups stating that they have released a new update for Google Reader. The most noticeable change with this update are the new buttons in Google Reader, it looks like this:

But it does seem a bit snappier on my Mac, which was the main reason I did not use it.

The update includes, as per Mihai's post:

  • There is a new button style and some links have been replaced with buttons to make them more discoverable
  • is now supported as an embedded video source
  • Tags are consistently referred to as "tags" (as opposed to "labels")
  • The shared items page now has a clear link to its feed (it's always had auto-discovery, but that's not always discoverable)
  • Oops errors after a Firefox crash and session restore should be fixed
  • Some small performance improvements
  • Improved behavior in nightly builds of WebKit

I asked if these do address the Apple Safari issues and if they do, I will give it another run. I suspect they do, since Mihai commented at my last post saying "things should get better with the next release of Safari" and this is the next release.
