The following new features are now available to all Google Apps domains:
Gmail for Android:
Priority Inbox - You can now see important messages in a new Priority Inbox view, see the importance markers and change the importance of conversations, just like in the desktop version. Additionally, you can now set up your phone to notify, vibrate, or ring on just your new important mail.
Improved Compose - You can now easily switch between reply, reply all and forward while composing your response. As well as that, if you’ve configured the ‘custom from’ feature in the desktop version of Gmail, you can now also send email from that address. Finally, you can also now respond to messages in-line.

The new languages are: Arabic, Bulgarian, Catalan, Chinese (Traditional and Simplified), Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English (UK and American), Estonian, Filipino, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latvian, Lithuanian, Malay, Norwegian (Bokmal), Polish, Portuguese (for both Portugal and Brazil), Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, Turkish, Ukranian, Urdu and Vietnamese.
