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.

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.

Bopup Messenger and Bopup Observer come with a few useful additions

New versions of the messenger and observer clients are available for download. These releases include some minor changes and additions.

Now Bopup Messenger shows incoming idle away messages with a small text so users can see "real" messages from recipients and automated idle aways.

Another important additions is a new menu item added to Messages called Mark all as read. Using this function users can stop all notifications on new and unread messages in a one click. It is useful when a user received too many messages and he knows that they all are not important. This menu item is grayed out if Bopup Observer client is running in Confirmation Mode enabled on the communication server.

Fixed issues with sending automated idle aways when a user has multiple concurrent sessions

We released new versions both the IM server and messenger client. These minor updates improved functionality with sending automated idle away messages in situations when a user has several connections to the communication server. The issue could occur when a user moved to another PC and left a running messenger application on his previous workstation. Thus the messenger client could switch to away mode automatically due idle time and could reply on every incoming message even the user was online on the second computer and could have a conversation. Now the IM server tells all instances of the messenger running under same account that the user has multiple concurrent connections and no idle away messages must be sent back automatically to incoming messages.

New versions of the IM clients added minor but useful updates

We released new updates for Bopup Messenger and Bopup Observer clients which add a few useful changes and improvements. See below the additions and fixes in the lastest versions of the IM clients.

Added option to send idle away message as automated response to incoming personal messages

The messenger client added a useful option that allows to automatically send responses to incoming personal messages. This is possible if idle away check box is enabled because automated replies can include only current idle away message.


Fixed error with displaying single quote sign (') in the conversation that became a double quote sign

Both clients, the messenger and observer, fix annoying issue with displaying a single quote sign (') in a text of messages in conversations. This sign became shown as a double quote (") which brought problems an important data has been sent. That was not a server or data transmission problem because the client modified the text itself in order to properly save it into message archive stored locally on a user's computer.

Fixed issue when outgoing message was not shown in the conversation

We also found and fixed another weird problem in the messenger client when outgoing instant message has not been shown immediately in the conversation chat. Get the new version to solve that issue.

Improved Message History module

New updates of the IM clients are shipped with improved message history viewer. It fixes problems with selection and display of a huge number of messages and file transfers for a future review, saving to a file or printing.
