Google is releasing an update to Sketchup 8 today. They've creatively named it "Sketchup 8 M1"

This update includes a big one however... the shadow bug has been fixed!
For those of you that aren't aware, the shadow bug can cause your models to sometimes look like this if you have shadows turned on:
Windows: Choose Help > Check for Update
Mac: Choose SketchUp > Check Web for Update
