Small update of the IM server is available

Version 4.5.1 of Bopup Communication Server has been released and is available for download. This small update of the IM server software improves Management Console that now displays appropriate icons in Presence Status view when users are in Away mode. Different icons are shown for Administrators, Power Users and regular user accounts.

Another improvement is a fix in Create New Organizational Unit Wizard that showed empty OU list on Permissions page if a parent Organization Unit of a newly created unit has been changed on first dialog.

Bopup Messenger version 6.8.2 is available

We built new version of the messenger client that includes few very useful updates. Version 6.8.2 instantly updates contacts' presence status in all opened conversation windows.

Another change belongs to recipient's presence status shown on a color background within user's name. Now the IM client displays appropriate status icon if a user is in away or offline mode. In these case the recipient name also added Away or Offline substring on the end. That is useful and lets see recipient's current presence status if Contact List is not hidden in conversations.

Recent updates of Bopup Messenger and Bopup Observer

Today we updated our messenger and observer clients and released their new versions. Bopup Messenger has been updated to version 6.8.1 and it comes with the following important fixes and improvements.

What's new:

Settings for receipt of personal and broadcast messages added separate options to show conversation dialogs on a top but in inactive state

The messenger moved "Show window as inactive" check box on "Receiving messages" tab of the Options dialog box to Receiving personal messages section and added same option to Receiving group & News messages.

Receiving messages tab added separate options to show conversation in inactive state

This is because most of our customers do not use "Today's Messages" tab in the main window so option to show it as inactive was unnecessary. Since new and received messages are shown in a conversation dialog so now it is possible to bring it on top on message receipt but keep focus on currently active application.

Fixed switching to Away mode when other users did not see user's updated presence status

We discovered that sometimes users were not update to see others in away even remote messenger reported that it is in the away mode. That was a client bug that we fixed.

Fixed issues with pop up of conversations on receipt of new messages

Another fix is related to showing conversation windows on a top of Desktop. Sometimes this could work, sometime could not.
