Tested with the FB account of a friend, it now allows a facebook chat connection.
QA will need FB to test ;-(

Suggested advisory :

Facebook has changed it's protocol, this update allow the connection to Facebook Messenger through Pidgin again.

Installed pidgin and purple-facebook. Tried to connect to Facebook and was unsuccessful. Updated to purple-facebook-0.9.5 and tried again. This time the connection worked.

OK for Mga6-64.

Great job TJ. Fesse-Bouc is not for the faint of heart. And thank you for validating the update. In fact, under our easing rules, most updates can be validated after just one good architecture test.
Done the advisory.
