Build 58 – Private Alpha Release

We just pushed an update to alpha testers (Build 58, r22238) which introduces fixes for the remaining known bugs in this series of alpha releases along with a fix for AIM/ICQ login. As always, you can read the entire list of enhancements on our Change Log. Notable changes include:

  • Fixed a bug that caused offline merged contacts to get stuck in their original group instead of moving to the “Offline” group
  • Add support for a change in the AIM/ICQ protocols that broke login
  • Added new diagnostic info to help us hunt down memory leaks – if you see Digsby using a ton of RAM (ie: over 200MB) please submit a bug report

We are hoping that this alpha becomes the next public release so if you run into any new bugs please let us know so they can be fixed before the build goes live for all users.  If you experience any issues please use “Help > Send Bug Report” in the main menu to submit a diagnostic log or email us at bugs@digsby.com.

Build 56 – Private Alpha Release

We just pushed an update to alpha testers (Build 56, r22037 r22044 r22059) which introduces several new features along with a few major performance enhancements that we have been working on. As always, you can read the entire list of enhancements on our Change Log. Notable changes include:

  • Buddy List Search – just type a buddy’s name and the status bar converts into a search box making it easy to find buddies or perform a web search
  • Significantly optimized all buddy list sorting and drawing code, reducing Digsby’s overall CPU usage by about 20% (or more for very long buddy lists)
  • Significantly optimized IM window performance for much faster scrolling, especially with slow themes like GoneDark

This release is packed full of major changes so we are expecting some new bugs to pop up. If you experience any issues please use “Help > Send Bug Report” in the main menu to submit a diagnostic log or email us at bugs@digsby.com.

Update 1 (05/19/2009 3:20pm EST): We just pushed out a small patch fixing a bug that caused the buddy list to stop sorting completely. Also, double clicking social network tray icons does open the “Set Status” dialog now. The new release number is r22044.

Update 2 (05/19/2009 5:40pm EST): There is a known bug that causes offline buddies to stay in their original group after signing off in a few cases.  This is now fixed and will go out in the next patch release tomorrow.

Update 3 (05/20/2009 1:30pm EST): We just pushed out a small patch fixing several bugs bringing the release number to r22059:

  • Fixed a bug that caused offline merged contacts to remain in their original group after signing off
  • Fixed a bug that caused Available/Away to not show in the tray icon right click menu
  • Fixed a bug that caused the infobox to break if you press Alt + F4 with it in focus
  • Fixed a bug that caused your Google Talk status to get cut off by one character in some cases
  • Added log statements to help hunt down a bug that causes the status dropdown to not show
