The IM server improves the install of built-in MS SQL Server 2008

We released new update of the communication server that would be important to our new customers. Version 4.3.6 improves installation of built-in MS SQL Server 2008 R2 Express that is intended for install on latest versions of Windows including 8, 8.1 and 2012. We noticed that some users experienced issues and installation errors of the built-in SQL Server so we took some time to figure out what happened with it and fixed the setup.

Messenger for Android comes with great improvements

New version 1.0.3.140614 Beta of Bopup Messenger for Android is available for download. This version added few additions and improvements, review them below.

Added support for events on addition, change or removal of assigned messaging groups 
Now the messenger supports instant events sent by the IM server on messaging groups. It immediately shows newly added groups, updates renamed name/description of existing group, and removes groups from Contact List if a user has been unassigned from them.

Added support to display forwarded messages that have been sent from another IM client under the same user account
The app receives and displays messages in conversations that have been sent from another IM client connected under the same user account. The option to forward instant messages to all connected messengers is managed on the IM server.

Fixed issue with updating user presence in Contact List
Another major fix is about update of a user presence status shown in contacts. We found that prior versions of the Android app updated only first user in the Contact List, the latest version fixes this issue.

New update of Bopup Communication Server

New version 4.3.5 of the communication server is now available for download. This is minor but important update that fixes issues with selection of a huge amount of messages from archive in the console. We noticed that prior versions of the IM server could freeze and hung up if a lot of data is selected in Pending, Delivered, Deleted or Search for Messages views. The new update of the server application selects and shows messages and file transfers faster and with no issues.

Another fix of version 4.3.5 is about exporting Message History to a text file. Since interface of the Management Console shows IP addresses both for recipient and sender we added that information for export too.

Set the amount of displayed messages in IM client conversations

Both Bopup Messenger and Bopup Observer clients have been updated. Among a lot of minor improvements and fixes the messenger application added a new hidden option named "MessagesInConversation" that controls the amount of both sent and received messages shown in conversations of sending dialogs. This option can be set during initial installation or upgrade of the IM client through setup.ini file or using Setup.ini Configuration Tool that is a part of the communication server.

By default the messenger shows all incoming and outgoing messages for current session established with the IM server. Using the new option it is now possible to show no messages (except unread) in conversations each time when a new sending dialog is opened. In this case the option must be set to 0 value.
