Fosimo 1.1.0 is available. Fosimo is a desktop app for Facebook which helps you control your Facebook account without browsing through Facebook.
Facebook released a new applications authentication flow based on OAuth protocol and a new Data permissions dialog so we moved forward and updated Fosimo with it.
Starting from Fosimo 1.1.0 version the user is no longer required to enter the username and password into Facebook's login page to authenticate and authorize the app. Instead the user have to provide a bunch of necessary data permissions for the app and Facebook processes the whole authorization process behind the scenes.
Unfortunately the new scheme is not fully backward compatible therefore if you are a Fosimo user you may notice some parts of the app not working starting today. In this case you need to remove the application from your Facebook account (via "My account" >> "Application settings") and restart it on your computer (make sure you have a new 1.1.0 version of Fosimo). This is supposed to solve permissions/authentication problems during the migration.
