Origin update makes it easier to view library, ignore friends

EA has detailed changes to the Origin client coming in version 9.0. As well as a number of performance tweaks, the main meat of the change log is the ability to resize items in your library and a floating friends list – so mostly a cosmetic effort – but there’ll also be an in-client system clock so you don’t have to alt-tab to find out just how little sleep you’re going to get after a midnight Mass Effect 3 session. The new version will roll out over the next few days; if you opt into beta clients, you’ll be among the first to see it.
