Google Sitemaps to Google Webmaster Tools

With the most recent update to Google Sitemaps they have added several new webmaster tools, increased functionality in adding sites and managing crawls and indexing. Also of note is that Google Sitemaps has been renamed to Google Webmaster Tools.

Google Webmaster Central is the portal for webmasters to submit a site, perform simple checks to see if their site is indexed or to create Sitemaps. It also has links to the Webmaster Blog, Google Group, and Help Center.

No, they still don't allow you to manually change your rankings (other than removing one completely, or a new submission). It is a big push toward Google's way of getting the webmasters ties even closer to Google (like we aren't already) in allowing them to focus the way GoogleBot will crawl their site.
