The PHP SDK v3.0.0 was released yesterday!
It is originally planned that the PHP SDK v3.0 is to be released on 1 July 2010. This is the first time that I find Facebook is releasing item ahead of the schedule!
Personally, I think this move is made because of the recent Authentication Data issue. Facebook is sending out email advising Facebook developers that their applications or sites may be inadvertently allowing authentication data to be passed to 3rd parties and request us to fix the issue. However, many developers may be encountering this simply because they are using the PHP SDK.
If you are not aware of this issue, you can refer to my blog for the details, related article include

Anyway, it is good to see that Facebook is responding FAST on this issue by releasing a new version of the PHP SDK. Simply go to GitHub to get it
While many of you should be considering to upgrade (as this is a MUST to use the new OAuth authentication flow by 1Sep2011), a series to tutorials will be published, aiming to share with you on my experience and knowledge. Visit it here.
