The team behind Digsby decided to make the source code for the multiprotocol IM client available to the general public. If you want to get the Digsby source code, you can get it from GitHub here.

Great news for all those who were hoping to get a look at Digsby’s inner workings: the team behind the innovative social networking and multi-protocol IM client has recently decided to release the application’s source code to the public. Here’s what the Digsby team had to say about going open source:

“We are excited to kick off our Digsby open source initiative! The Digsby team has decided that the best way for us to deliver new features, and continue to evolve our product, will be to open it up to our most technical users. The Digsby community has always been helpful and supportive of the product, and we feel that by opening our source code we can give back and show our appreciation to Digsby’s most loyal followers. We couldn’t be more excited for this next chapter for Digsby and we can’t wait to watch it continue to grow and progress!”.

The Digsby team also announced that come October 10th, the following changes will be implemented: the Digsby widget will be removed, video chat support will be dropped, and all user info will be stored locally.

As you may remember, Tagged acquired Digsby back in April 2011. The Digsby team said at the time that, as part of the Tagged team, it will continue its mission of making online communication easy and efficient and that it is excited about the fact that the innovations offered to Digsby users will be offered to the 100 million people all over the world who use Tagged.

After the Tagged acquisition, the Digsby team made sure to point out that the multiprotocol IM client will continue to work as usual – that support for the product will not be dropped. After announcing that Digsby went open-source, the team reassured all Digsby users out there that the plug on community and development support will not be pulled.
