New Google+ Share and Plus One Button’s Released

Google+ Widgets team has released an all new redesigned +1 and share buttons that look consistent with Google+ badges.

Another reason behind this change is to scale them across many different screen resolutions without losing quality. For that reason they switched all their buttons to use SVG to render the iconography and Roboto font for text according to Paul Lindner of Google+ team.
