We just released a new version of the Gmail app in Android Market, so Gmail updates arenít tied to Android version releases anymore. Now you can get new Gmail stuff faster without having to wait for system updates.

If you are on a custom ROM where the signature of the gmail app is different, then you will have to do the following first:
  1. adb remount
    adb shell mv /system/app/Gmail.apk /system/app/Gmail.apk.bak
  2. adb uninstall com.google.android.gm
Note: the uninstall command may work on its own, but the above is what I did in order

Thanks.
Didn't work for me though, I had to adb shell and "rm" the gmail apk, different rom I guess

But then it installed nicely.
Now if they could please update their calendar to add some missed features.

Edit: No... what version number should it display in "about"?
Mine says 2.3 , but I don't get my priority inbox

I'm on CM6 (8/27) without the Gapps flash and I just used Titanium Backup to uninstall Gmail, restarted, then installed from the market.
