Happy Mango day everyone! After a lot of hard work I'm pleased to announce that WPCentral has officially gone Mango, so for those of you rocking the developer previews, or those lucky enough to have mango today you should see an update to v1.4 in the Marketplace very soon.

If you who have opted for the full version of the app here's what you can look forward to:

  • Brand new podcast player with Background Audio
  • Brand new double-sided live tile with number of new articles since last opened
  • Live tiles for each section of the app
  • Toast notifications for news
  • Background downloading of the news feed when live tiles are enabled

Whereas if you think the best things in life should be free you'll find:

  • Brand new advertising provider (AdDuplex) making the app much more responsive
  • Fast app switching
  • Pinnable tiles for each section of the app
  • New links page for viewing articles or web pages
  • Search extensibility, the app will provide search results for Bing video games and Software
  • Toggle system tray option
  • Speed optimisations as part of Mango update
  • Fixed a bug in the article parser & Facebook authentication

Of course with the exception of adverts the full version features all of the free features as well.

If you missed Daniel's preview a month back then you can catch the video after the break, you can find the app here in the marketplace
