In the first release, with Gears installed, you are able to tell the system how many documents to save for offline interaction. They are starting with read-only views, and will then roll out the ability to save docs back, and then further moving out offline functionality into the other products in the office suite.
The other major feature to come in today is the ability to add comments to a document. You can choose any part of the document and click on the ‘Comments’ icon at the bottom-right of a document and add multiple comments. The comments then show up as a div bubble.
It is great to see all of the third party applications starting to roll out applications using Google Gears, and I am looking forward to watching how the offline interaction models change over time.
