    Facebook Dropping FBML Support?

    I've been hearing rumours about this, has anyone heard about it here?

    Would that be just for Facebook Apps, or would it be for Static FBML on Facebook Pages too?

    It's not a rumour, if you checked the link they cited it says the following. Now I'm glad I didn't take the time to learn it!

    We will begin supporting IFrames for Page tabs in the next few months. Developers building canvas applications should start using IFrames immediately. By the end of this year, we will no longer allow new FBML applications to be created, so all new canvas applications and Page tabs will have to be based on IFrames and our JavaScript SDK. We will, however, continue to support existing implementations of the older authentication mechanism as well as FBML on Page tabs and applications.

    I consider that good news.

    I wonder if they'd allow directly adding mark-up to Pages now (rather than having to go through Static FBML or some other app).

    Hi I'm new here, just found he thread whilst looking for info about FBML and tab icons.
    I do hope FBML gets phased out, really prefer not to have to learn and scour the net for resources for another language.
