Build 81 – The More the Merrier

We’re excited to release Build 81 (r27909) to all users which includes some highly coveted new features, bug fixes, and enhancements.  As always, you can read the entire list of enhancements on our Change Log. Notable changes include:

  • Group Chat: The long awaited group chat support is finally here! You can create or join chat rooms on AIM, ICQ, Yahoo, MSN, Google Talk, and Jabber. Just click the room list button on the top right corner of the IM window and invite others to the chat. You can also create rooms via the menu: Digsby > New Group Chat.
  • LinkedIn: We’re introducing a completely redesigned LinkedIn implementation powered by their new API. You can now do all the good stuff you already do with your other social networks like comment on posts, like/dislike items, etc.
  • MySpace Like/Dislike: We added Like + Dislike support to MySpace newsfeed items.  Since their API doesn’t currently support this capability, the link acts as a shortcut for posting a “Like!” or “Dislike!” comment on the thread.

If you run into any bugs please use “Help > Send Bug Report” in the main menu to submit a diagnostic log or email us at bugs@digsby.com.  We’ll keep pushing to make Digsby even better and greatly appreciate your help in spreading the word!

  • Just downloaded the latest digsby, looks to be cool!

  • Thanks!

  • Maladroitmortal

    I saw in your past posts that you fixed the FB "Failed to Connect" and the FB login page constantly popping up. However I STILL have these problems. I JUST redownloaded and installed the newest version of Digsby in an attempt to correct this problem but it still persists.

  • Hmm.. can you submit a bug report regarding this? Help > Submit Bug Report

  • Adam

    What about Linux/Mac versions? It's been 2 years. When are you planning to release those versions?

  • Patrice

    How would one sign up for the Mac alpha testing? You know...when it actually happens...

  • MacPlease!

    Can we have some sort of time estimate for the Mac version? It's been so long I'm almost at the point where I've forgotten what I liked so much about it!

  • Jink kamera

    Guys, individual buddy notifications is 5th on the digsbies list now, and because skype thingy is not possible and group chat is done, its essentially third. Come on, at least tell us that you'll do it.

  • A_kazemi_t


  • Barbara

    Where can i click Digsyb-->New Group Chat ??? I cant find it!!!

  • Click Help > About Digsby and see if you have Build 27909. Also, in an IM window there is a small icon in the top-right that you can click on to invite other people in the conversation. Let us know if this helps!

  • Vitorgatti

    linux version plz :'(
    windows sux ]:(

  • fantastic009

    Hey what sup to all user of digsby happy ramadan!!!

  • Erika1097

    hi, is this r27909 the same as 27909 only? bec i un and reinstalled what was initially r27909 then it became 27909... and still can't log on to my YM account... :(

  • Yes, they are the same version. Can you submit a bug report regarding your YM account? Help > Submit Bug Report

  • Dennis

    additional studivz/meinvz social network too!

  • Dennis

    automatically resize for the contactlist would be nice! =)

  • Desmond Tutu

    Unless I'm mistaken, digsby does not implement the voice chat of windows messenger live? Not being able to voice-chat prevents me from uninstalling messenger live. I hate having to still keep it when I prefer digsby.

  • I like this soft. It's a free soft?

  • 100% free

  • Maksimus77

    Any news on Buddy Pounce feature guys? Would really love that! Thanks for all the great work!

  • Thebat1

    oh yeah.. thanks for a great program..

  • Thebat1

    Mine is not working when I click to chat with a buddy I get a Error message that says ASPELL has stopped working.. then when I close it it tells me I need the dictionary so download it ok?? so I do and it keeps crashing and doing the same all over again..?

  • Can you submit a bug report with more info? Help > Submit Bug Report

  • Drew

    group chat....i cant believe it. its finally here. this is the greatest day of my life

  • freddyhernandez

    Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! I've been waiting for this for such a long time. Thanks for implementing group chat, it was the one thing that has really been missing for me to completely convert. I can now completely get rid of ALL my other IM programs.

  • Luisralvarado2

    Thanks for this software frees but only in english..I hop the version in espanish....greeting

  • Wan23

    I didn't see any mention of a robust searchable history? I use IM for work constantly and I need the ability to quickly look up past conversations. Diggsby's weak history search is the one thing that's kept me using Trillian.

  • Now that there is group chat, can you make an option for the Digsby widgets to be a group chat, kind of like a chat room in a sense? That would be great.

  • Nice update!

    Will we see the ability to send hyperlinks when chatting? I know you can send URLs, but I'd like to be able to provide link text. Or at least a URL shortener, like "Insert Link" on the global status.

  • Taveanator

    Awesome, so glad this feature has finally been released.

    Is there anyway to join an existing room? (in AIM specifically)

  • Wayne

    ICQ con is gone since sunday.

  • Hmm... can you submit a bug report with more info? Help > Submit Bug Report.

  • Princess

    Good work guys.
    Digsby is the 'bomb'.
    Thumbs up!

  • Thanks!

  • manoloo

    wheree do I ad new contacts.?

  • When the buddy list is in focus, you can just press "Ctrl+A" or click Digsby > "Add Contact.." Let us know if that helps!

  • Naveen

    Dear Erick,

    Iam using digsby at a different place from home where i had a broadband connection. Here there is a proxy server. I entered the correct proxy settings and the mail IDs and the social networking sites are working fine but the IMs are unable to connect. Digsby is running in local mode. I went into the advanced settings of the IM accounts and tried to change the proxy there also but in vain. what do i do?

  • Can you email us at bugs@digsby.com ?

  • Yvasmi

    excelente desde q lei sobre esta pagina la agregue de una vez a mi comp solo q solo un dia dio error para entrar pero hoy ya funciono, excelente por q puedo tener todo a la mano sigan adelante...

  • Malikadnnaarshad

    Thnks for new implemenatation .
    Digsby Rocks!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Elgnelgn2000


  • Jeff

    Thanks for the update.

    Please release an alpha with portable (USB flash drive, etc) support ASAP. I've been waiting patiently for this for many, many months.

  • kickelol

    Jeeeeez, I see we're not even close to see Gadu-Gadu support. <.<

  • i hope it goes with Video chat too,that will be very great and wonderful just like all in One

  • Kar_khowaja

    You guys rock! was wondering if you can launch its Blackberry version as well it would be great help for us.

    Thanks... God bless you (Y)

  • L.G.

    Group Chat! Again, you guys are AWESOME! Keep up the good work.

  • Thanks! Will do!

  • Anyguy73


    2 things i would like to see... 1) start digsby minimized... 2) automatically resize the buddylist...

    Thanks for the great work so far.. keep it on..

  • When would you like to have the buddy list automatically resize?

  • Anyguy73

    Hi, depending on the number of contacts... I have the buddylist in the right corner of my screen... some contacts go off and online over the time... so either the buddy list is wasting space because only a few contacts are online or the other way around i have to scroll in the buddylist to see whos online.. for me it would be nice if the list resizes automatically upwards to fit the content of the list..

  • Pelldom

    YES! Group Chat! The only significant thing missing now is IRC chat support.

  • The Great Pretender

    Baby I like it!

  • Thanks! :)

  • a simple feature i've been waiting on:
    automatic copy to clipboard when selecting text in IM window.

    would be great to have this as an option in digsby! thanks,

  • Acisterna

    thanks, now we needs the function "list" of twttier!

  • Zombye1987

    I need to write in any other email providers such as: freemail.hu, and others, many of my friends also miss the different smileys that are not included in the default msn etc.

  • esce

    How about digsby's security?
    Is it highly encrypted (ssh), etc?

  • Tinachiga


  • Cocubloo

    Excellent! Thank you! I love this app so damn much!

  • Thank you! We'll keep pushing to make Digsby even better!

  • Llwest

    I would like to be able to add our own Email address not just the ones on yahoo. ect...

  • Does your email support POP or IMAP?

  • Jiri Cerhan

    When I started to use digsby my live has changed. No more bugs and problems. Thank you a lot. Is it possible to support you somehow? I can place your banner on my website or i can send you a few dollars.

  • Anything to help us spread the word about Digsby is greatly appreciated.

  • fm4real

    This is cool

  • Thanks!

  • Dan Danson

    I wish there was support for storing and sending custom emoticons. This is the only thing that holds me back unfortunally. :(

  • You can download custom emoticons from our community-run site - http://digsbies.org/site/ca...

  • Dan Danson

    Thanks for your swift response!

    Will this be sent as a custom bitmap as custom emoticons to the MS Live messenger client? I have built a few of my own, and I want to send them to clients that supports RECEIVING custom emoticons too! (Pidgin supports this)

  • Cooluxz

    Waiting for digsby mobile application

  • Siyadot

    Awesome stuff,great job. Thanks

  • Andy

    Huge thanks to Digsby team for adding Group Chat. I know you guys (and gals?) have come in for a lot of stick that this feature has taken so long but I'd like to encourage you all because this is the ONLY thing that's stopped me wholeheartedly recommending Digsby to others. I'm gonna spread the word big style now!

    I know there are always going to be more feature requests and people who want skype integration etc., but don't lose sight of the fact that Digsby is a great product already. I'd hate to see it wrecked through featuritis.

  • Thanks! We're looking into it. As for feature-bloat, that's definitely something we want to avoid. Usability is always at the top of our list.

  • Dan C

    Great! How about Subgroups support (groups within groups) for Jabber?

  • mariouana

    thanks for that. hoping to see the best facebook UI any chat app has ever had before... please take care of the auto-fb notifications as well... no chat app has that all... twitter is perfect, just remove the one click (sad UI) and add shorcut-keys... digsby will be untouchable!

  • Thanks for the feedback. What problems are you having with auto-fb notifications.

  • Josh

    How about Skype support?

  • Their protocol is a bit difficult to implement without actually having Skype open, which kind of defeats the purpose. Definitely something we plan on tackling though

  • I second the vote for new MSN protocol support, especially the multiple concurrent locations feature. It's a big hassle that I must sign in again with MSN whenever I go to work/get home.

  • Foxsan48

    thank you very much,the group chat b4 was annoying

  • You guys keep making Digsby better and better. I can not live with out it anymore. Now all I need is any Android 2.1+ app and my life will be completed(as for as messaging anyway).

  • Elmor Almera

    will you please include camfrog in your multiple log in

  • Miguel

    excuse my ignorance, but someone tell me how to download this new version of Digsby? is that I am new to Digsby and do not know how to download the new version! whom we would greatly appreciate help me!

  • Hi Miguel, sure thing. All you have to do is go to http://www.digsby.com/ and click on "Free Download" or look to the top-right of our blog for and click on "Download Now." Hope this helps!

  • Rafael

    What a great leap for Digsby... thanks

  • Miguel

    disculpen mi ignorancia, pero alguien me podria decir como descargar esta nueva version de Digsby? es que soy nuevo con Digsby y no se como descargar la nueva version!!! le agradeceria mucho a quien me ayudara!!!

  • does this mean the foundation for IRC is there now? even the simplest IRC support would let me eliminate another client in favor of running everything through digsby. anyway, great work, thank you.

  • Ming Zhu

    Great job. Thanks a lot!

  • This is great! I really love the group chat; thank you so much Digsby.

  • Athurn_zala

    Can new version can use BUZZ or DING to alert chatter freinds.....

  • Publius Vergilius Maro

    Digsby est optima res abusque panis sectus! Hortor mihi amicos hoc programma uti. Olim regetis tellures cælosque omnes! Utinam dei vobis favent.

  • Miguel

    pardon my ignorance, but someone tell me how to download this version of Digsby?

  • Just open up Digsby and sign in. During the sign in, it will check for updates and download and install them automatically.

  • Imtiyazsiddiqy007
