Facebook has announced the pending release of a major update of their Windows Phone app.

Version v2.5 will have the following new features:

  • Threaded messaging
    Full Facebook threaded messaging including group messaging, all in a beautiful Metro style design.
  • Tagging
    Now you can tag friends and locations in your posts in the ‘with’ and ‘at’ format.
  • Delete posts and comments
    Use the tap and hold context menu to delete posts and comments from your wall.
  • Active links in posts
    Tap on links in posts to go directly to the content.
  • Updates to the photo comments and likes page
    The photo comments and likes page has been updated to match the posts comments and likes page. You can see a hint of the image at the top of the page, pull down and you can see the whole thing.
  • And finally, by popular demand…
    …you can now ‘like’ comments!

The developers say the app is now in final testing, and should hit Marketplace soon.
