The Digsby development team is hard at work in the last months to optimize and improve the instant messaging, email and Social networking client. Joshua covered the last Digsby release which already saw a computer memory reduction of 50%. The new Digsby release was announced today in the official Digsby blog.
The major changes in this release are again memory optimizations claiming memory reduction by up to 75%. The default Digsby client is using a little bit more than 10 Megabytes of computer memory which is 5 Megabyte less than the last version according to Joshua's screenshots of the last release.
Other notable changes include more than 3000 code revisions since the last release, performance increases, connectivity improvements, LinkedIn support and full newsfeeds.
