End of Facebook Chat support

This is sad announcement. Kadu 3 will have its Facebook Chat support removed. There will be no longer possibility to add or use Facebook accounts and existing accounts will stop working. It is not Kadu fault. Facebook is closing its XMPP gates on 1.05.2015 [1] and their own protocol is not accessible for third party applications.

  1. Do you think this:

    https://github.com/jgeboski/bitlbee-facebook

    could be of any use?

  2. Maybe it is a solution. I'll contact author and see if this can make it into Kadu 4 later this year.

  3. Not sure if this can help but Pidgen uses a third part DLL to allow Facebook connect - the wiki home page is https://github.com/jgeboski/purple-facebook/wiki
