Joe Hewitt, developer of the iPhone app had submitted the third iteration of their iPhone app on Aug. 16 to Apple for approval.
So if you have been waiting eagerly for the new version download it from the App Store as Apple.
The latest version of Facebook’s iPhone app includes the following new features:

Please note that if you are still seeing the older version of the Facebook app (v2.5, like I was) then delete the iPhone app and reinstall it from the App Store (thanks Hewitt for the tip!). It worked for me.

I played around with the iPhone app for sometime and was extremely impressed.
Facebook for iPhone 3.0 (direct iTunes link) is now available on the iPhone App Store and so is the update if you have already installed it.
