Google stuffs up Picasa upgrade by removing integration with Picasa Web Albums

BEWARE: The Google Picasa Windows client upgrade from 3.8 to 3.9 REMOVES integration with Picasa Web Albums and replaces this with the inferior Google+ photos. 

I recommend you DO NOT upgrade until they sort this mess out.

Otherwise, if you "upgrade" you will lose the easy ability to:
  • embed photos and slideshows from Picasa Web Albums in a blog or Google site etc.
  • easily create Picasa Web Albums and upload smaller sized photos
This is a REALLY BAD upgrade as it downgrades your functionality.  Google, please reconsider this.
