• Improvements to commenting: thanks!
• User search autocompletes based on people you follow: like Twitter, sorta.
• Visual improvements: yup.
• Speed optimizations: always good.
• Optionally share likes to Facebook (enable in your Profile > Sharing Settings > Facebook): and so it begins...
*Update: A previous version of this article stated that the upgrade was unique to iOS; we have since learned that Android received the same update and the article as been updated to reflect this information.
