Google Sites has again been updated to give more new features:
You can now make the sidebar navigation gadget show every page in a hierarchy view automatically, listed alphabetically. Use the Edit Sidebar link and then Edit link in the Navigation box: then tick the Automatically organise my navigation box.
Subpage Listing Gadget
You can now add a gadget that adds a list of the subpages in the same expandable/collapsible format as the site sidebar navigation gadget. This is updated automatically with all of the subpages and you can even use it as a navigation gadget for the top level.
Insert > Subpage listing
Rather than the two previous page layouts (one and two column) there are now seven (yes 7) page layouts, some of which include a side bar of their own. This means you can disable the site sidebar and have a different side bar on every page (but it's fixed at 150pixels, where as you can set the site sidebar to any width).
Edit Page > Layout
25 New Themes
Google have provided 25 new themes very similar to the Google Page Creator themes, so migrated sites should look as similar as possible.
More Actions > Manage Site > Themes
You can now see the attachments on the whole of your site in one place: More Actions > Manage Site > Attachments. This new tool also allows you to upload attachments to the Top Level of your site (e.g. http://www.example.com/picture.png).
