Paul Buchheit, a Gmail Engineer, said on Google's Blog: "Of course, the launch was just the beginning, and we're still busy improving Gmail.....We’re working on that too – there’s still more we can do for the folder-lovers and devout-deleters out there. But wait, there’s more! :) We also have a new batch of exciting innovations on the way that we hope will shake things up again and make Gmail even better for even more people."

Some of the features, which I think Gmail would have in the coming months are:
* Integration of calendar with email like in GNOME Evolution or at least as much as Kmail's integration with its organizer
* A way to schedule your email delivery, so you can compose an email today but schedule sending it couple of days today.
* A much better integration with Google Desktop Search (GDS). Right now, GDS archives your Gmail account onto your desktop. In the future, files cached by GDS may be archived in Gmail as an image or a one big file so you should be able to search most of your text info wherever you are.
* A Tomboy (on Linux) like note taking (wiki-like) feature or a simplified version Tiddlywiki on the server for taking notes.
Finally, after reading some of the statements made by Eric, Sergy, Larry and few other engineers, I think that Google is most likely going to announce porting of one of their software to Mac X in the next three months. Could be: Google Earth, Google Video, Google Talk, Picasa, or GDS. And if I am lucky, one of their software would be ported to Linux in the next two to three months. Hopefully it would be GDS or Google Earth.
