We are happy to announce the release of version 1.7 of the
ActionScript 3 API for Facebook.

The key update in this release is support for the new oAuth 2.0
authentication model mandated by Facebook. Applications using the
older oAuth 1.0 approach will still work in 1.7, but users are
recommended to update their applications before October 1st to use the
new approach. A subsequent release of the API is scheduled on
September 30 which will remove support for oAuth 1.0 authentication
completely. All code samples have been updated to use oAuth 2.0.

To migrate your applications to use the new approach, update the
application settings on Facebook.com (Advanced > Migrations), and then
change the property name "perms" in the login options object to
"scope" in the authentication calls in your application code.

-- Previous Approach --
var loginOptions:Object = {perms: "publish_stream, user_photos"}
Facebook.login(loginCallback, loginOptions);

-- New Approach --
var loginOptions:Object = {scope: "publish_stream, user_photos"}
Facebook.login(loginCallback, loginOptions);

Also included in this release is support for the Facebook batch API to
process multiple calls in a single request, and patches for several
bugs:
* The nextPage and prevPage methods now return an instance of
FacebookRequest
* FQL errors gracefully, rather than throwing an error
* Fixed a minor locale bug

As always, please direct any questions or feedback to the Facebook AS3
API Google group.

Thank you!

Minor clarification...
On the Facebook Advanced / Migrations tab, should both of these
settings be changed to enabled?

Encrypted Access Token
and
Forces use of login secret for OAuth call and for auth.login

I was looking at the new Timeline method and "actions" and "objects"
model facebook is rolling out Oct. 1. Will the AS3 api provide access
to these features?
