Origin 9.0 client now available
EA has released a new iteration of the Origin client, bringing it to version 9.0. The new version fixes a couple of bugs, notably the FIFA 12 invitation issue, but also introduces a number of cosmetic updates like moving the friends list and letting you hide it should you wish to. The update should be applied automatically next time you restart Origin. See the full patch notes through the break.
