Translation lets Google’s "cat" out of the bag?

Read an interesting article this morning (via Lifehacker) about how it looks like Google may be readying a new version of GMail.

How did they get the “scoop”?

As most will know Google allows it’s users to assist with and polish the translations it uses throughout their platform. Recently a user was logged in and doing some translation on the GMail UI and got prompted to enter a translation for “New Version” with supporting context text that said “Link that users can click on if they are part of the trusted testers program to go to the new UI”.

Oops.
