Gmail for Android 4.0+ devices updated with pinch-to-zoom and swipe-to-archive

Remember that huge upgrade to Gmail for Android we wrote about last month? Looks like Google was merely putting the finishing touches on the app before releasing it to everyone. While the big new features — pinch-to-zoom and swipe-to-archive — only work on devices running Ice Cream Sandwich and above, it looks like all Android devices received the requisite performance improvements and bug fixes.

Aside from the most notable changes, Android 4.0+ devices benefit from being able to attach files and photos from within the app itself, as well as larger photo previews of photos.
