In the new version, Xperia with Facebook no longer syncs contacts. I'm not sure why this has been removed but it may be related to that this feature is already present in the Facebook app and you can enable synchronization of contacts under Settings -> Facebook.
I will forward the issue with birthdays for further investigation.

I have received the information that Xperia with Facebook is in the process of being phased out and some functionality have already been removed. Therefore the exact functionality is dependent on which device and software you have.

With my Sony Z2 *after* the 4.4.4 update I no longer get high resoution photographs in contacts. I also am not seeing calendar events from Facebook correctly.
I don't know why you would be deprecating an extremely useful application. As may be seen from the deluge of messages this provided some useful integration that is not possible to achieve another way.
Can you feed back to development and management that we would like it back again and working please?

The information i got says that this is because of changes on Facebook which is limiting the synchronization possibilities in their interface.

Even without high resolution contact pictures its obvious from looking that e.g. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.shadowfury.facebookcalendarsync&hl=en calendar sync is still possible.
Which means that the developers really haven't looked that hard!
Interestingly they still syncing events but are not syncing birthdays.
Can I reiterate - the calender syncing is essential and I would consider the loss of it a show-stopper bug. I would class it as data-loss and therefore significant.

I'm not sure if it refers to changes made or upcoming changes but i will of course forward your feedback.
Currently Xperia with Facebook supports calendar (not birthdays), Album and TextInput but depending on phone model and software version you may have more functionality which still works.
Xperia with Facebook no longer synchronizes contact pictures. It's done by Facebooks app now and it uses a lower resolution.

Thanks for the reply.
After experimenting with https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.shadowfury.facebookcalendarsync&hl=en I can confirm it works perfectly (and in fact provides more features than the old Xperia with Facebook).
Its just annoying that I have to install another third party app to fix Sony's software ;-)
