Did the Mavericks Mail update fix your Gmail woes? [Poll]

Did the Mavericks Mail update fix your Gmail woes?

A couple of days ago Apple released the Mavericks Mail update, designed primarily to fix compatibility with Google's Gmail. I never hid my All Mail folder in Gmail, so I managed to escape the problems unscathed. It's been working fine - well, as fine as Gmail ever can in Mail.app - since beta. Other people have had nothing but problems, and apparently are still experiencing them.

So, if you use Gmail, and you use Mavericks, and you've installed the update, how's it working for you? Is Mavericks finally playing nicely with Gmail's quirky IMAP implementation, are there still a few issues you're facing, or is it still pretty much unusable for you?

Vote in the poll above and then give me the details in the comments below!

Gmail and Mavericks Mail: Why they aren't playing nice and what you can do about it

Google has never had anything approximating what you could call a normal IMAP implementation for Gmail. However, under Mail in OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion and previous versions, many of us learned to work around and otherwise live with it. No longer! OS X 10.9 Mavericks changes the way the Mail app works, and in doing so, is less forgiving of Gmail's idiosyncrasies than ever before. Joe Kissel on TidBITS:
