The newest version of WordPress for Android (download) has just dropped, and in addition to all the bug fixes and performance tweaks, it brings with it a few big features that should please longtime users.

With WordPress 2.1, users can now edit comments. Thanks to a new Edit button that brings up fields for changing name, e-mail, URL, comment text, and status, the process is just as easy as on the full WordPress site.

Next, the app is finally offering an autosave feature. This means if you close the app or your phone shuts down unexpectedly in the middle of a post, you can be confident that you won't have to start over from scratch.

You also can now set the width of linked images from the app. Previously, you could link only to full-size images in posts, but now under the Settings menu, you can easily change that. Just hit the check box to "Upload and link to scaled image" and type in your desired width in pixels.

Lastly, the built-in WordPress.com reader has also been improved significantly. Navigation between posts is simpler and now you can comment on posts or even share posts to other apps on your Android device.

WordPress 2.1 for Android (download) is available now for free download on Google Play as well as in the Amazon Appstore and the Nook's app store.
