Only Facebook can really answer that.  Their announcement is confusing 
as they use the term XMPP but then talk about total withdrawal. 
Deprecation is a stage in which there is a more preferable alternative 
but the old one is still supported.

If they really mean a total withdrawal, the Pidgin software supported on 
this mailing list will cease to work, but there may be third party 
plugins that support the new protocol.

Information about one third party plugin is available 
at<>.  As it was last 
updated in 2010, there is a good chance that it will not work with the 
latest protocol.
