Their site is having some issues. Though I'm only having issues with the addon and wiki site so maybe fixes are underway.

Program is dead, addons' link is dead, forum is dead, wiki is dead, even screenshots' links are dead.

Miranda IM 0.10.53 fails to connect to AOL while Miranda NG 0.95.5 connects fine. Not that I need AOL, just an observation.

I think if Miranda IM doesn't support Facebook it could simply be removed from the description. If Miranda NG works with it it might be worth adding to its entry for users who are looking for the support.

What you state is not true, both Pidgin and Miranda NG can connect to Facebook via plug-ins. It is not Miranda IM and Pidgin fault that evil Facebook dumped open-source XMPP (Jabber) protocol in favour of a proprietary, closed-source one. Anyway, using Facebook for communication is the worst choice possible.

apometron: just tested facebook successfully with Miranda NG

Neither Miranda, nor Pidgin connects to facebook. Just Trillian connects to facebook nowadays... Sorry but this is my experience.
