Another Improvement on Google Docs

Google Docs users will see a lot of improvements on Google Apps in this month. I have just received an email regarding changes to Google Docs. This will be an incremental updates rather than big bang updates, so no big changes that would make users Panic

Here are the changes, taken from the email from Google Apps:
● Starting on June 16th, 2010, we will introduce new sharing settings in Google Docs, designed to make sharing easier and to give your users more control over their files. Now your users will be able to assign a sharing setting to a file in just one step and see at-a-glance how each document is shared. To learn more, please visit the help center at http://goo.gl/I8Jp.
