Apart from some new features like improved notification in which you can see comments threads inside the application instead of launching the mobile website every time, various bugs have also been fixed in Facebook 1.4 for Android.

Facebook also announced some other new features like opening Single Sign-In and other Facebook APIs to developers on all platforms. Because of these dev features, expect more apps to integrate Facebook easily.
