Bopup Communication Server version 5.0 is available

We are proud to present a major version 5.0 of Bopup Communication Server software. The new release introduces great modern interface of Management Console that includes fully re-designed HTML views, flat icons and other images. We believe that version 5.0 of the communication server will be liked by our existing customers because it represents a new era of Bopup IM software platform.

A brief overview of the new interface changes

New modern design of the Management Console interface
We changed a lot of belonging the user's GUI in the new version of the console. Now the views to display user accounts, groups, news, file distirbution tasks look different. But same information can be read and accessed easily because some displayed details have been compacted.

How the few from new views look now
Dashboard view (former Welcome screen)
User account profile page
File Distribution task profile
IM Client Configuration Tool
We renamed a well-known Setup.ini Configuration Tool that manages instant messenger settings from the server console.

IM Client Configuration Tool (former Setup.ini Configuration Tool)

That's because the Setup.ini file can be used on initial deployment of the software (to set the name of the IM server, for example) but in most of other cases the tool is used directly from Management Console to change and distribute new options to users with no handling the setup.ini file itself.

Added a check of Organization Unit permissions on moving user accounts
The new version now checks both previous and new OUs' permissions on moving users between then and if the permissions match then users' Contact Lists are not reset and keep unchanged.

Improved Active Directory Import Wizard
The interface of the Import Wizard added a log window that shows a process of the import procedure. That's the same log that can be accessed at any time from Tools menu.

A lot of minor and other important fixes and improvements
There are a huge number of small bug fixes and enhancements that the new version 5.0 of the communication server added. In overall the new release has become more stable and faster.

Build and change users' Contact Lists from the IM server

We are happy to inform that new version 4.3.12 of Bopup Communication Server has been released today. This version comes with a great function that allows to change and tune users' buddy lists from Management Console personally for each user. It is now possible to do from user's properties dialog.


The list of available users shown on the Contact List tab is based on user's Organizational Unit permissions, so it is possible to add/remove contacts that are only visible to the user. Please note that users with Administrator account type may see and select all users available of the IM system.

The new feature of the communication server would be useful when changing contacts are not permitted to users themselves from messaging clients through appropriate option on the Contact List tab in the options. In this case users can have custom buddy lists even they are all located in the same Organizational Unit and this would be a great addition to existing OU permissions functionality.
