Continuing our efforts to improve our engagement with developers, we announced a partnership with programming Q&A site Stack Overflow to launch facebook.stackoverflow.com, which will become the place to have your Facebook Platform questions answered.
As part of our effort to simplify who can see photos, tags, and other content on Facebook, we’ve simplified the Graph API permissions for photos and videos. We’ve deprecated the sometime confusing
user_photo_video_tags permission and folded that functionality into
user_videos. Tuesday’s blog post has all the details.
A few weeks ago, we announced a real-time ticker and a redesigned canvas for making apps more engaging and social. We have finished rolling out this functionality, and it is now available to everyone (we are still ironing out some issues with IE7 and will be adding support shortly).
We recently updated our Developer App to a more streamlined design (now available to all developers). We wanted to clear up a few questions that we’ve received from you:
https://apps.facebook.com/YOUR_APP_NAMESPACE) to create the Canvas Page URL.
We’ve updated the iOS SDK and refactored some code to make it consistent with our internal methods. This is not a breaking change and, if you’re using a previous version of the SDK, you need not take any action. If you decide to upgrade to the latest release, please note that the following authentication method signatures have changed on the Facebook object:
- (id)initWithAppId:(NSString *)app_id andDelegate:(id<FBSessionDelegate>)delegate; - (void)authorize:(NSArray *)permissions; - (void)authorize:(NSArray *)permissions localAppId:(NSString *)localAppId;
The main change is that the specification of the delegate has moved from the authorize: methods to initWithAppId. As a result, please note that if you were changing the delegate with each call to authorize: you will now need to manually set the delegate, for example:
facebook.sessionDelegate = self;
Please see the authentication section of the iOS SDK documentation for further details.
We updated the FQL documentation for the following tables:
We have also updated the JS SDK documentation for the
82 docs are under review.
Is there piece of documentation that you think particularly needs attention? Tell us by voting here.
