Picasa 3.5 available for download
Basically it's about name tags that have been available in web version for a while. It scans all the photos in your collection, identifies the ones with faces, and groups photos with similar faces together. It will also sync back and forth with online albums so if you already got name tags there all will be imported to your local collection.
Other features include geotags and integration with Goggle Maps. You can easily set album or photo geographic locations. Tag management has been improved which makes it more interesting alternative to commercial photo management software. last but not least is simplification of import, upload and sharing. You can actually do this in one step.
