Facebook Beta for Android (Update)

I'm not really the type to install an app and be done with it.
Can't remember when but a friend posted in FB that it's now open for public to join FB App Beta Group.

The reasons to use a beta app (or not) are as below though it can be more as these are just my opinions.

Cons:
1. All the bugs
2. Constant updates (sometimes 2-3 times a day)

Pros:
1. Latest updates
2. Can comment and possibly be heard by the FB Dev Team
3. Higher compatibility with custom ROMs as most issues are fixed consatntly



Here's how to get the FB Beta App:

1) Join the Facebook for Android Beta Testers Google group
2) Allow beta downloads by clicking Become a Tester in the Play Store (you need to join the Google Group before becoming a tester)
3) Download Facebook from the Play Store to update your app
4) Join the Facebook for Android Beta Testers group on Facebook to tell us what you think

Do you notice anything different about the interface? :)
Current version before update. Weird numbering no?
Quite a size for just an update
The latest version

UPDATE:
It seems that just one of those days where FB updates itself more than once a day

The latest, latest version today. Quite a bump up I see
