Digsby Beta (build 61)
Digsby provides you with IM, email and Social networks in one easy to use application.
Instant Messaging - Digsby is a multiprotocol IM client that lets you chat with all your friends on AIM, MSN, Yahoo, ICQ, Google Talk, and Jabber with one simple to manage buddy list.
Email Notifications - Digsby is an email notification tool that alerts you of new email and lets you perform actions such as 'Delete' or 'Report Spam' with just one click.
Social Networking - Digsby is a social networking tool that alerts you of events like new messages and gives you a live Newsfeed of what your friends are up to.
Version 38 onwards is a stub installer that includes numerous toolbars etc., we recommend you do not install these.
* Brand New Look - We released a sleek new default skin called â€œWindows 7â€ (by Derek Erdmann). If your skin is set to anything besides the default, this will not override your preference. If you prefer the old look, go to Preferences > Skins and choose the â€œQuickSilverâ€ skin.
* MySpace - In Build 60, we switched the Infobox over to a full blown web browser (WebKit). We said that the change would make the Infobox much more versatile and this is the first example of that. We are introducing a completely redesigned MySpace newsfeed which now includes a full Activities Stream, status updates, and the ability to browse through photos.
* Global Status - A new Global Status dialog makes it easy to set your status across social networks and IM accounts. You can access it from the status dropdown on the buddy list or by double clicking any social network. The Global Status dialog also makes it easy to share links (via digs.by) and pictures (via pic.im)
* URL Shortener - We are launching a URL shortener just for Digsby users under the domain http://digs.by. In the future you will be able to access a history of links you shared and statistics about how many times they were clicked.
* OneRiot - We partnered with OneRiot to make it easy for you to search the real-time web. Just hit â€œCtrl + Fâ€ on the buddy list to search.

* Twitter will no longer keep trying to request someone's icon after the first request fails
* When exiting Digsby, if you have multiple tabs open and are asked if you are sure you want to exit, clicking â€œnoâ€ will now correctly not exit
* We now send â€œGoneâ€ when you close the IM window in Jabber conversations (XEP-0085)
