New version of Bopup mobile messenger for Android

New update of Bopup Messenger for Android platform is released and it's version 1.2.3.180126 is available for download on Google Play. This recent release of the enterprise mobile messenger client includes many great improvements and changes that makes the IM software much stable and useful.


What's new:

The messenger app now runs in background on device startup if previously login credentials are saved
Now Bopup Messenger can be launched as a background process if it's options are configured to start the app on phone startup. This a very important change.

Fixed app crash when it tries to show a recipient typing event but the conversation screen is not in foreground
The new version fixes a crash of the application when conversation screen is closed or the app goes to background. It could crash if remote recipient were still typing his message.

The app remains working in memory when it is closed by Back key
Another annoying issue was that the messenger application asked to disconnect from IM server when Back key pressed on a phone. That was an inregular functionality. Now the messenger does not display the disconnect dialog and remains working. In order to close the application and unload it from device memory Quit menu item was added.

Useful improvements in conversation dialogs
Many changes occurred on Conversation screen including moving an input focus to message field again once outgoing message has been sent. The messenger also limits a visible text of outgoing message and only last 5 lines.

Major version 1.2.0 of Bopup Messenger for Android

The new version 1.2.0 of Bopup Messenger for Android is available. This version has a lot of improvements and fixes so we recommend to upgrade the application.


What's new:

The Contacts tab is now shown before Messages
We decided to move the Contacts tab that includes assigned groups and users list to the left and show it prior Messages tab. So now the Android messenger operates like Bopup Messenger for Windows desktop.

The Login tab contains a link to Bopup.me test server
Here is a new addition that is now supported by the messenger application. We launched new Bopup.me website that is also running a shared instance of Bopup Communication Server. This server is designed for evaluation purposes only and it allows to use pre-defined test user accounts in order to establish connection with the IM server and evaluate how the communication works.

Fixed error on selecting messaging groups in Contact List
Another critical fix was selection of assigned group in Contact List. Previous version of the instant messenger could crash on selecting any shown group.

Fixed app crash on connecting to IM server if the messenger was manually disconnected prior this
We noticed that the messenger application crashed everytime on subsequent connect to IM server if it was previously disconnected manually. This error has been also fixed in the recent version.

A lot of interface improvements and fixes
A huge amount of minor fixes and GUI improvements including colors, displaying titles, showing incoming and outgoing messages. They are all important.

We updated Bopup Messenger for Android and released it's version 1.0.9. Previous version 1.0.8 that came 3 days ago contains a critical bug that crashes the app on it's startup.

New version of the IM client for Android platform

New update of Bopup Messenger for Android has been released and posted on Google Play market. It is version 1.0.8 that now removes Beta from it's version title.



This update of the IM client supports flags set for user's Contact List on the communication server such Locked state and Chat with only users from the contacts. Version 1.0.8 also fixed issue with showing outgoing messages on the "Messages" tab within all incoming (received) messages.

Another most important change is a smaller size of the client. We removed all log.d() function calls from the release build that were used for internal debugging of the messenger software. It seemed those calls made working the IM client slower and required extra resources.

IM Server fixes autorization of Android clients if Windows Authentication is enabled

We released a priority update for the communication server that fixed problem with accepting the Android clients if Windows Authentication is enabled for user accounts. It seems that the IM server had a bug that did not allow to connect from Android devices under the same account name used by a user in desktop messenger. We strongly recommend to update an existing server software to version 4.3.17 to avoid this issue.

Useful update of the communication server software

We released Bopup Communication Server version 4.3.11 that comes with useful improvements and updates. It also solves the issue explained in the recent post when Android app is unable to connect if Windows Authentication is used for the user account. See detailed information on changes in this version below.

What's new:

Added function to set a password for a user manually if Private login/password authentication is used
The server console added an option to set a password for the account if third-party authentication is used. That's too useful addition because our customers asked about this function for a long time. So now it is possible to change password for the account manually through account properties window and not only to reset it in order to force the user to create a new one by himself.

Added ability to use same IM account name on Android messenger app even if Windows Authentication is enabled
Another important change is about support of the messenger application for Android platform. Prior versions of the IM server required to have different accounts for the same user if the software works on Windows domain network. Or change the authentication for that user to Private login/password mode. The latest version of the server now supports using the same IM account on different devices, and use Windows Authentication on desktop messenger and Private login/password for Android app.

Fixed issues with checking new updates
We were reported that the console did not check for updates correctly and even brought a connection error message. That forced us to discover several issues and one was in our website since May 2014! Now everything works as it should and properly.

Known issue: Android app does not support Windows Authentication

Here is an issue with authentication used by our IM client for mobile platform called Bopup Messenger for Android. It does not support Windows Authentication so the application cannot accept domain name, account and password to connect to communication server and brings an SSPI authorization error. The problem is in SSPI mechanism used by our IM server and which is not supported by Android platform because it's implementation is available for Windows system only. We will try to work out this issue in future versions of the software, stay updated.
