What's new in Facebook Alerter
Facebook Alerter now runs without a Dock icon by default. The Dock icon can be re-enabled through the application preferences.
The log in window is now only displayed on the first launch of the application. Subsequent application launches will attempt to log in without any windows displaying.
Situations without an active network connection are now handled gracefully.
Facebook Alerter now functions correctly when launched as a 'login item', including when set to Hide.
Message link improvements for users of the new Facebook Unified Messaging system. Please note there are still some limitations for "unified messaging" users due to bugs in Facebook's API.
