New features released this week include the ability to render a button so users can add application tabs to their profiles as well as updated Adobe ActionScript 3.0 tutorials and documentation.
Prompting Users to Add Application Tabs
Grouping Application Stories in News Feed
If more than one stream story from the same application appears in a user's News Feed when the user visits the Facebook home page, Facebook will group them into a single story and display a "See More" link, which will display all the current stories by that application.
This affects stories that appear in the user's Most Recent stories as well as the Top News stories.
Adobe Updates ActionScript Library
Adobe published new and improved tutorials for creating Facebook applications using the ActionScript 3.0 Client Library for Facebook Platform, to coincide with their release of Flex 4 and the new Flash Builder 4. Download the ActionScript library and start building.
Adding Developers Requires Consent
When you add a Facebook user to your application as a developer, that user must confirm the request before being listed as a developer. The user will receive a developer request, and the user's name appears with a pending state in your application settings until confirmation.
Keep an eye on this blog to get the latest developer news, and check Platform Live Status to see the current state of Platform. You can subscribe to them both via email. We also publish a weekly article that lists the week's code check-ins that impact developers.
We hope you get yourself familiar with these features and we welcome your feedback on the Developer Forum.
