V1.5.3 has friend tagging, friend search and bug squashes.

Facebook has released a new update for its Android client that adds a  slew of new features and fixes.

The update, which brings the client to v1.5.3, now allows users to tag friends in status updates, find contacts from the Phonebook, and the ability to add their phone number to their profile right from the app (strangely this is the number 1 security no-no to perform when registering for Facebook).

The update also brings unnamed bug fixes and improvements to the client.

The app is available in the Android Market for free.
