Empathy in Lucid will have a pre-configured option for adding a Facebook Chat account thanks to Facebook opening up their Facebook Chat protocol earlier this week.

Chatting to your Facebook contacts via most multi-protocol clients is now a snap, and the Empathy devs are going to make it even easier by pre-configuring the set-up for you.

We already posted instructions on how to log into Facebook chat from Pidgin and Empathy using Jabber/XMPP – although some users are having issues getting it to behave in Empathy.

By adding official support for it in Empathy in Lucid users will find connecting as easy as whacking in their username and password and hitting ‘OK’.

Roll on Lucid!
