I was told on March 9 that the bug that was causing Like-gated apps to not refresh and re-load the page has been fixed - were you aware of that, or has anyone else heard of that?

A good summary of the changes and the work ahead of us. I think point 2 is the least concerning, as your tab will still work, it just won't take full advantage of the newly available extra width. This will come in handy when I talk about the changes to brand pages at the next Facebook Developer Garage London.

The cover photo is different than these custom tabs/apps. They can still have a call to action and a request to "like"

The example you showed doesn't meet with the new Facebook page guidelines though as found here.Covers may not include:i. price or purchase information, such as "40% off" or "Download it on socialmusic.com";ii. contact information such as a website address, email, mailing address, or information that should go in your Page's "About" section;iii. references to Facebook features or actions, such as "Like" or "Share" or an arrow pointing from the cover photo to any of these features; or
No more arrows leading to the "Like" button or even saying within the cover image "Like Us" is now a no-no.

I was up late last night trying to figure it all out in time for an all-day social media workshop I'm presenting Saturday.
Here's what I managed:
In my novel's page, what used to be the "Welcome" tab I made into a "Excerpt" tab and I redid my Pagemodo page with an excerpt. I'm not so concerned about getting likes as getting people to buy my book.
In my other two pages, I added my Networked Blogs & Twitter app.
I like the Milestones feature and that you can message your fans and they can message the page. Just like any change, it'll take some getting used to.

I have read a lot of complaints about Facebook's "Timeline." I don't spend a whole lot of time there but I will say that I used to spend more before they changed it all up. It is a little too time consuming now.
Facebook always has to change things and it is not always a good casino change so hopefully they will one day realize that these changes just drives people away.
