Today we added an "FQL Query" tab to the Graph API Explorer to make it easier to test and play with FQL. As before, you can run FQL queries through the Graph API by issuing an
HTTP GET request to
QUERY can be a single FQL query or a JSON-encoded dictionary of queries. This tab in the Graph API Explorer just gives you a quick way to experiment with queries.
To give people on Facebook the best experience, we’re introducing several new Open Graph publishing guidelines. In instances where these changes require you to modify an existing app, you’ll have 90 days to complete your update per our Breaking Change policy. These guidelines address feedback we’ve received and codify best practices that encourage everyone working with our platform to put user experience first.
Additional publishing guideline
90-day update window
Even if we’ve approved your custom action for reading an article or watching a video, you must migrate to using a built-in action, resubmit your app and get approved. Please review the requirements for working with read and watch actions.

On June 6th, the following changes will go into effect. For more information, check out the Developer Roadmap.
Removal of FBML
FBML apps will no longer work on Platform. The "FBML Removal" migration will appear and will be enabled for all apps. It will be possible to disable the migration, thereby re-enabling FBML, until July 5, 2012 when the migration and all FBML endpoints will be removed completely.
XMPP Connections must be done over TLS
Apps connecting to Facebook's XMPP service will be required to use STARTTLS for all connections. We will start rejecting unencrypted connections.
