yes, it has arrived! sketchup v8. and what do i think? i think its great google is working on sketchup, but it realy is not that much of a change. For me, all it has changed is that my favorite plugins dont work, and i have to transfer all of the textures i have accumulated over the past few years. in my opinion, if you are a google earth modeler, this is for you. if you model for fun, use lots of plugins, and try to make somthing really detailed you can be proud of, dont waste your time with this. its not worth the trouble. in fact, im sticking with su 7. when google makes some real changes, il switch.
