Updated Gmail App Available to 2.2 Users

The Gmail for Android team today just released an update to the Gmail application available on the Android Market and since Gmail updates are no longer tied to the software updates, this is a download that you have to get directly from the Android Market, it wont be pushed to the device.
Some of the new and improved features include:

We’ve improved message replies, access to quoted text, and more.  As you scroll through a conversation, your most important message actions will now stick to the top of the screen, one click away, no matter how long the email is.  Don't remember what prompted the most recent email in a thread? Now you can view previous message content more easily, just like in the desktop version of Gmail. Tap “Show quoted text” to reveal the previous message.

Finally, this updated version of the Gmail app has limited support for Priority Inbox. If you’ve enabled Priority Inbox via the desktop version of Gmail, you’ll see an “Important” label that shows all messages flagged as important. You can even add a shortcut to “Important” to your home screen.

Keep in mind that you must be running 2.2 (Froyo) to get this update.  If you are not running 2.2 then the download will not be available.
