Bopup Messenger update. Version 7.0.2 is available

We discovered that starting from new version 7.0 of Bopup Messenger stopped a delivery of typing notification to a remote recipient when an outgoing message is typing in conversation dialog. It depended on a typing sound function that we removed in recent releases of the application, so we disabled that function too by a mistake.


We recommend to update the software to version 7.0.2 in order to avoid missing "User is typing..." event shown in the conversation dialog while IM exchange occurs.

A new era has come: Bopup Messenger version 7.0 is released

Long 15 years. During the last 15 years our instant messaging client called Bopup Messenger was offerred within it's initial interface designed and produced in 2003 year! The messenger icons, bitmaps and toolbars were not changed from the time when Windows XP had been released.

Of course many things have changed from the beginning on the XXI century, and the vision of GUI and application design too. And those things that worked in the past started to look odd and ugly today. So the changes in the messenger interface became a critical need. So meet all-new Bopup Messenger version 7.0


The new release of the messenger has flat windows and dialogs. We removed borders to make the interface more clear.


New toolbar images, new icons in Contact Lists and everywhere in the application. The new interface is performed in monochrome theme.

At the same time we tried to make new images similar to the previous interface so existing customers could continue using the software and the upgrade to the new software was not painful and difficult.


In addition the application removed many unnecessary functions that came from it's oldest versions, deleted some menu items to make the messenger much better, lighter and easier to use.

Bopup Messenger version 7.0 is fully compatible with previous versions of the communication server and IM clients so the version upgrade will not affect to instant communication and will not bring any issues to text messaging services.

IM server installers have been improved

We updated current installation packages of Bopup Communication Server by keeping the same version number 5.2.4. The updated installers improve installation of Management Console only (administrative mode) when the communication server is planned to be managed remotely.

Since new versions 5.x of the IM server creates and uses 'bcs50' SQL database by default then this could be an issue if the console is installed to manage an instance of the communication server that was previously upgraded from version 4.x or even from version 3.x. Those versions have 'bcs40' and 'bcs30' database names instead of 'bcs50' that made impossible installation of the remote console using setup files for versions 5.x

The updated installers add a new text field on the SQL Login setup dialog that allows to specify a proper database name. It's default value is 'bcs50' that can be changed in cases described above.

Meet our new Live Chat

In our previous post we informed that the Live Chat feature on our websites and in the server console apps stopped working and we had to find another solution to provide instant technical support and reply to pre-sales inquiries for our clients and visitors. That did not take much time so meet an all-new Live Chat that is already available on http://www.bopup.com and other websites.


This Live Chat is provided by Zoho (the same vendor as we used before) and in comparison with the old text chat form it brings new great and useful functions. Now the Live Chat form supports file transfers so it is easy for us and for remote customer to exchange files and data. Another great apportunity is the desktop sharing feature. Now we can request a remote user to show his desktop window that lets much quicker and instant resolution in many cases.

We will implement and add the new text chat functionality to the new version of Bopup Communication Server software too.
