New Insights graph for page load times

App Insights will now display page load times for any Canvas iframe applications that call, FB.Canvas.setDoneLoading, from the Javascript SDK. For custom control of what gets counted as page load time, you can use the FB.Canvas.stopTimer and FB.Canvas.startTimer. This feature will allow you to track the load time of the entire canvas page, not just your iframe.

"iframe" dialog no longer allowed when requesting certain permissions

We recently pushed a change that will no longer allow certain permissions to be requested using the iframe display type for security reasons. These permissions currently include:

read_stream
manage_friendlists
read_mailbox
sms
xmpp_login
ads_management
read_insights
read_requests
manage_pages

If you are using our Javascript SDK, you don’t need to change anything. We will automatically pop a popup wherever you specify the iframe display type and are requesting one of these permissions. If you are not using our Javascript SDK and were using display=iframe, you’ll need to change your code to popup a window and load the dialog using display=popup on your own.

Please note that a popup dialog has always been required for the initial authorization and permissions prompt. This change only affects permission dialogs prompted after the initial authentication step.

Minimum width for Open Graph page images

When specifying an og:image Open Graph tag, if you would like that image to be displayed next to the posts made by that page, it’s now required that your image has a minimum width of 180 pixels.
