Build 82 – Private Alpha Release

We just pushed out a small update to all of our alpha testers (Build 82, 28065 28094) which includes fixes for a few recent protocol changes.  Notable changes include:

  • Fixed a bug that caused Gmail actions like ‘Delete’ and ‘Archive’ to not work if you enabled their new multi-account login option
  • Fixed a bug in MySpaceIM that caused login to fail due to a protocol change
  • Fixed a bug in the Research Module that caused Java runtime errors
  • Rotate CitySearch local listings in with the OneRiot trending news stories (prominently labeled as ‘Featured’ when they appear)

Since this build is primarily bug fixes for protocol changes, we’d like to push it out to all users as quickly as possible.  Please let us know if you run into any bugs by using “Help > Send Bug Report” in the main menu to submit a diagnostic log or email us at bugs@digsby.com.

If you would like to become an alpha tester and get new releases before everyone else, download this file and place it in the main program folder. Keep in mind that as an alpha tester you may get a release with a few bugs every now and then.  We are looking for people who are proactive in reporting these issues so we can fix them before builds go out to all users.

Update 1 (8/26/2010 3:10pm EST): We pushed out a small patch that should help Hotmail accounts log in more reliably.  It looks like some of the Hotmail servers have been flaky lately so we are trying a different login method.  The new build number is r28094.

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!
