New version of Bopup mobile messenger for Android

New update of Bopup Messenger for Android platform is released and it's version 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.

Another change and improvement now adds an action on a click on balloon tooltip shown by the instant messenger in system tray area. A click shows main window of the messenger, or starts Contacts List Wizard if some changes occurs in user's contacts.

Download Bopup Messenger version 6.8.5

We updated our Bopup Messenger that is a full-featured LAN and Internet messaging client for Windows platform and released version 6.8.5 few days ago. The new version comes with interface improvements in conversation dialog that affected to splitter form and GUI elements.

This update also reverted back showing all users under assigned Messaging Groups regardless the "Show online users only" setting applied for Contact List. So offline users are also shown in groups even the Contact List displays only connected accounts.

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.

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.

New version 4.4.2 of Bopup Communication Server has been released and is available for download. This is a minor update of the product that fixed errors with sending instant messages from command line interface using BCSCMD.EXE module of the communication server. Previously it brought errors related to SQL Server on Windows XP and 2003 systems.

Version 4.4.2 also includes the latest release of Setup.ini Configuration Tool that supports the option to show date of messages in client conversations.

We have released new version 6.7.2 of Bopup Messenger client that comes with a great improvement. It includes new option located on the "Sending messages" tab in Options dialog called "Show date within time in conversations" to display a date of instant messages in their title near time value. If the option is turned on then the messenger shows "Today", "Yesterday", "2 days ago", "3 days ago" or full date in YYYY/MM/DD format for all earlier messages in conversation dialogs.

We also updated Setup.ini Configuration Tool that is available as a stand-alone file for download, it's current version 1.2.2.

Version 1.0.11 of the Android app added support for 12-hour clock format

We just updated Bopup Messenger for Android and released it's version 1.0.11. This update added support for 12-hour clock format (US-based time) that shows AM/PM indicators in time of messages. By default the messenger shows these indicators and new setting must be used from the Options to turn this off.

Another small improvement is about group conversations that now show '@' symbols in their titles in beginning group name.

Useful improvements in the messenger application

We released Bopup Messenger version 6.6 that improved many things and functions. It is not critical update of the IM client but please check changes below, maybe you will find something useful.

What's new:

Added ability to maximize conversation windows

Now conversation dialogs can be maximized to full screen on desktop. This function was blocked in previous versions of the messenger and dialogs could be only minimized or closed.

Today's Messages pane is removed if a user disables it
Another change is about Messages tab shown in the main window of the IM client. Previously that tab was only disabled and could not be switched to but was always shown in the messenger. That fact usually confused our customers and we decided to accommodate and remove the tab when it is disabled from the Options.

Contact List pane moved to the first place
In addition to the previous change when Today's Messages tab can be now shown or hidden we moved the Contacts tab to the first place in the main window. We believe that this is much correct to display contacts and groups first instead of showing received messages.

Names in conversations are shown according to display options
We improved displaying names of sender and recipient in conversations dialogs. Previously names always contained a user account name in braces followed after his/her first and last names. Now names are shown according to options set in Organize Contact List Wizard, i.e. in the same format that is used to display users in the contacts.

Fixed issue when Organize Contact List Wizard could be launched even contacts are locked on IM server
We found and resolved the error with ability to change contacts from the messenger app even they are locked on the communication server. This issue occurred only if a user logs to the IM server using Private login/password authentication.

Minor updates of the IM client software

New versions of Bopup Messenger and Bopup Observer messaging clients have been released. These releases contain minor changes but include a few useful bug fixes.

What's new:

Added support to restrict changing contacts if they are locked on the IM server
Bopup Messenger client now prevents changing contacts and blocks a launch of the Organize Contact List Wizard from the interface if the contacts are locked on the IM server. A new option to lock users' Contacts List from modifications has been introduced in the recent version 4.3.13 of Bopup Communication Server.

Fixed duplicate incoming messages shown in conversations if the hidden option that limits an amount of displayed messages is used
The messenger client fixed issue with duplicate messages shown in conversation when the last was from invalid (News) account. We resolved that this bug appeared only if the IM client showed a limited amount of messages in conversations by enabling a hidden setting through the server console.

Fixed issues when message is going from offline user but only online contacts are shown
Another important fixes belong to functionality if the messenger displays only online users within Contact List. In that case the instant messaging client did not show blinking notifications in the contacts when a new offline message was received on a program startup and the sender was offline. It also fixed issues with displaying messages in conversations for recipients that have gone to offline mode but the messenger had unread messages from them.

Many minor fixes in Message History and File Transfer modules regarding support of AM/PM time format
Both Bopup Messenger and Bopup Observer applications improved support of 12-hour clock format with AM/PM indicators to show date/time correctly.

New versions of the messenger and observer clients

We released new updates of the in the past few days. These are not major updates because come with a little changes.

The most important change in Bopup Messenger is a new hidden option that allows to do no show group messages sent by a recipient when a personal conversation is opened with him. The option called "HideGroupMessagesInConversation" and can be set on initial setup of the software using Setup.ini file or via Setup.ini Configuration Tool available as a stand-alone tool in Downloads.

Since current version of the IM server software contain an older version of the configuration tool it is impossible to use the new option in the client. The only way is to update the setupcfg.exe file in the installation directory of Bopup Communication Server manually once you download the tool from the website.

Another change is about AM/PM time format that has been added in previous release of the instant messaging clients. The messenger fixes displaying of 12:00 time when 12:00AM shown instead of 12:00PM.

The messenger client also resolves the problem with a scroll bar in conversations. It could appear in a middle of the screen if conversation includes many messages.

Major updates both of the messenger and observer IM clients

In addition to the recent update of the communication server application new versions of Bopup Messenger and Bopup Observer are available for download. Version 6.5 of the messenger and version 5.5 of the observer client come with great additions and improvements, see changes below.

What's new

Added option to display time of messages in 12-hour clock format with AM/PM indicators
It is important to show currencies, time and other values in the applications according to user's current locale and settings. Since most of our customers are from US we added support to show time of messages and file transfer in 12-hour clock format with including AM/PM symbols. Now new option is available in IM client options and it can be also set from the communication server.

Added options that override default colors of sender and recipient titles in conversations
There is a great  news about colors in conversations. Now it is possible to customize them and set any other color for sender's and recipient's names shown in conversations. Default colors are blue and gray but the colors can be easily overridden using Setup.ini Configuration Tool on the IM server or via setup.ini file during initial install. These colors cannot be customized by users themselves from the IM client.

Added options that restrict changing text font, color and inserting smileys (emotions) to outgoing messages
Using client settings uploaded on the IM server is also possible to restrict other functions in the IM client such as changing font and color text for outgoing messages, inserting graphic emotions or using 'typing sound' feature. These options are also hidden and cannot be controlled directly from instant messaging applications.

Bopup Communication Server version 4.3.10

Today, 13th February we updated our instant messaging server applications and released version 4.3.10. New version of the IM server fixes possible issues with starting up of Management Console on Windows 2008 R2 edition. We also added an option to display time everywhere in the console in 12-hour clock format with AM/PM indicators. This would be a useful update for our US customers. Another addition is about displaying connection string used to connect to the SQL Server, that is now shown in the SQL database maintenance dialog. It's value can be requested by our technical support representer in some cases so it will not be necessary to open registry editor to retrieve that value in the future.

The new server package also includes the latest version of Setup.ini Configuration Tool that now lets set up custom colors for sender's/recipient's titles in conversation and block options in sending message dialog for users such as changing text font and color, inserting emotions and using the 'typing message' sound.

A long time coming release of the Android app

We are glad to inform that new release of our Bopup Messenger for Android platform has been released. The latest version 1.0.7 introduces many additions and improvements, it is much useful and better than all prior versions of the IM client because settings interface is provided too.

What's new:

Added localization to Spanish language
Now the app supports Spanish if the same localization is set on the Android device.

Added option to automatically launch the app on system startup
The main issue from app's first release was the absence of an option to start it automatically. Version 1.0.7 added Settings page and the option to launch app on a device startup is also provided.

Added option to automatically show incoming message (conversation) on it's reception
The settings page in the app also added option to automatically show new message within a conversation once it is received. If this option is checked then the messenger would select a message' sender in Contact List and display a conversation. If another chat conversation is opened then it will be switched to a new one.

Added sound alert and vibrate notification on a receipt of messages
Another important options belong also to receipt of incoming messages. Prior versions of the messenger app had no any alerts on this. Version 1.0.7 added vibrate alert and ringtone sound that can be turned through the options.

Bopup Messenger for Android also fixes many little bugs and added another minor improvements. We highly recommend to update existing applications running on Android platform. New version is also available on Google Market at

IM clients updates are available

New versions both of Bopup Messenger and Bopup Observer clients have been released. They fix important and annoying issues and also come with other little improvements.

Option "Reply to group" is enabled by default on an initial installation
We noticed that the option to reply to a messaging group instead of a message's sender is very important and useful. Using the option it is possible to organize a group chat between all assigned users to the group. But this settings was not enabled by default so many users asked us how to have a group conversation because reply option always sent a message to a sender account not to the group. Now Bopup Messenger enables by default on a first ("clear") installation on a computer.

Fixed issue with scrollbar in a conversation dialog when no messages are shown
Another annoying issue was an issue with a scrollbar in a conversation text box that moved up all previous sent and received messages. This could appear when a chat window was automatically opened on an incoming message.

Fixed error on messenger startup when history contains favorite messages
Due to unknown reason the messengers could bring an error on startup when favorite messages existed in the history. We rebuilt the Message History module to solve this error.

Improved pop up of the main window on reception of new messages
We missed function that allows to pop up the main window of the IM client when it is minimized to Task bar area on a receipt of  new message. This functionality is too important on Bopup Observer client.

Useful fix in Bopup Messenger version 6.4.1

We updated the messenger client and it's version 6.4.1 is available for download. This update is for prior version 6.4 that added a lot of improvements and additions. Since we change a format of messages in conversation this version fixes an issue with formatting font and color both of incoming and outgoing messages. If you noticed that first letter of each message in conversation does not apply for required text font and color then it is strongly required to upgrade it to the latest version.

Major updates of the IM client applications

Great updates of the instant messenger software are available! We released Bopup Messenger version 6.4 and Bopup Observer 5.4 which come with a huge number of changes, bug fixes and improvements.

What's new:

Great changes applied to displaying conversations 
Many improvements and additions occurred in formatting conversation dialogs. We changed colors both for sender's and recipient's titles that include name and time. Blue and red colors have been removed and we started to use neutral gray color to mark headers.

Now each single message in the conversation is separated with an empty string that allows to easily find a recent message among others.

In addition if offline or message to multiple users is sent then that notification text is shown using small font with italic style applied. When offline message is received then appropriate notification is appended to the end of the message in the similar format instead of beginning of message.

File Transfers become visible in conversations too
Another great addition is about incoming and outgoing file transfers that are shown in conversation within instant messages. Information on completed transfers is also instantly shown in conversations.

Empty break lines are removed from messages
The latest version of the messenger client now checks and removes empty strings from the end of messages. This is a useful update that applies to a friendly look of conversations.

Message History dialog fixed issue with invalid symbols shows between selected conversations
Another weird issue was displaying "strange" symbols in Message History if one or multiple items have been selected in the result list. We found out what happened and resolved that error.

OverwrittenAccount option is never ignored even the IM server requires Windows Authentication
Both IM clients support a feature that makes possible to override current account in Windows that would be used by application. That can be done using OverwrittenAccount value under application root in the registry. This tricky option allows to connect to the communication server using different user name but when the IM server requires Windows Authentication then the overwritten account is reverted back to current user ID. The latest versions of the instant messaging clients fix this issue.
