Just one month after their 8.0 update, Facebook has updated their app to version 9.0, bringing some new commenting and group management features to the app. The News Feed on iPad has also been updated, and posts about trending topics will now be highlighted.

You can now reply directly to comments on posts made by Pages, but only if the Page has commenting turned on. For groups, the group administrator can now use the iOS app to review and approve pending posts created by members of the group.

You can download Facebook 9.0 from the App Store right now.
