Release Notes


This is second BETA release of the version 5 branch of the Facebook C# SDK. Remember this is a BETA build. Some things may change or not work exactly as planned. We are absolutely looking for feedback on this release to help us improve the final 5.X.X release.

This release contains some breaking changes. Particularly with authentication. After spending time reviewing the trouble areas that people are having using this SDK (and Facebook in general) we decided to spend a good deal of time working on authentication.

We have renamed FacebookApp to FacebookClient and FacebookAppBase to FacebookClientBase. You can fix this change by either just doing a find or replace or by setting the following using statement:
using FacebookApp = Facebook.FacebookClient;
using FacebookAppBase = Facebook.FacebookClientBase;

For more information about this release see the following blog posts:
Additionally, we have spend time trying to improve the samples and make it easier for you to get started. Please let us know which samples you are using, how you are using them, and the exact nature of your problem if you have any.

This release is also posted these to NuGet:

Reviews for this release

After converting the names like in the changes.txt, my testapplications works again. Thank you for the very high rate of improvements. The schema files would be the last thing to get the star number 5 :)

Could please please please please please please upload a diagram of how the SDK works and also interacts with Facebook! A simple image of the data flow for all the various scenarios including authorization, redirection, form posting and so on. Im using MVC Canvas so something along these lines would be fantastic ! thanks ...
