Drupal for Facebook Beta
I've put a beta tag on Drupal for Facebook. This indicates:
- We're close to an official release. Code still needs some cleanup and possibly bug fixes. And more documentation always helps.
- We're feature complete.I'll check bug fixes into the beta branch, but not new features.
But also, I wanted to tag the code before and after some recent checkins. The beta you can download from drupal.org is after a few big changes. So if using it raises any issues for your apps, let me know as soon as possible by submitting reports to the issue queue. Specifically the changes are around how user accounts are automatically created. Now, less data is stored in $user->data. And there should be no bugs in which a users facebook user id gets out of sync, resulting in an incorrect value.
I've made a few other changes, less dramatic in terms of underlying code, but perhaps more easily perceived. For example, there's an easy way now to add a Facebook Connect button to Drupal's login form.
By the way, its a "2.0" release because the original Drupal for Facebook used an old and now deprecated version of the Facebook API. So there never was a supported 1.0 release. The changes were so major I branched it to 2.0. So the first real release will be Drupal for Facebook 2.0 for Drupal 6.x.
Have fun with the latest release. Report bugs! Submit patches!
