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.

Bopup IM Client SDK is now also friendly with IPv6

New version 1.2 of Bopup IM Client SDK supports networks with only IPv6 protocol enabled. This release also added support for new flags set for users' Contact List and Messaging Groups on the communication server.

Bopup IM Client SDK provides functions for connecting and establishing IM session with the communication server, sending/receiving personal and group instant messages, receiving urgent and high-priority tasks from the server, managing user's contacts, receiving presence status updates within the Contact List. This SDK supports various authentication methods to authorize users on the IM server: Simple, Windows Authentication (SSPI) and using Private login and password credentials entered by a end-user. 

Using SDK components it is possible to implement instant messaging client applications using various programming languages and platforms including C/C++ and Microsoft VB.NET/C# frameworks. SDK library also provides an interface for VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) environment support that is available as built-in development platform in Microsoft Office software and allows to create macros for a range of Office applications such as Excel, Word, Outlook, Access, PowerPoint and others.

Bopup IM software added support for IPv6 protocol

We are proud to announce that both the communication server and IM client software now support IPv6 protocol that is the most recent version of the Internet Protocol (IP). It is intended to replace current version IPv4. The IM server supports also IPv4 so the software can accept connections using different protocols at the same time from messenger clients.

Bopup Communication Server also added new option to Messaging Group profiles that allows to hide a list of assigned users to the group and to do not show them in user's Contact List. So the displayed group cannot be expanded.

Another improvement is related to sorting messages and file transfers shown in Pending, Sent and Deleted/Declined views under Message History in the console. Now the server uses DATETIME SQL data type instead of SMALLDATETIME type used previously that includes seconds within hour and minutes.

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.

Critical update of the messenger app for Android

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. The reason was in ProGuard tool that is used to build a release application. We fixed settings of that tool and it seems that now the IM client starts and works correctly. IM Client version 1.0.9 for Android is already available on Google Play market.

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.

Critical update of the messenger application

New version 6.6.2 of Bopup Messenger client available that fixes a critical bug in GUI. This is an important update of the messenger application and it is required for all releases starting from version 6.6. The problem occurs when the main window of the IM client removes "Contacts" tab if Simple or Windows Authentication is used to connect to the communication server. That causes some interface bugs and does not show "Sign in" tab if a user manually disconnects.

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.

Contact List permissions has been improved

New versions both of the IM server and messenger software are available for download. Version 4.3.18 of Bopup Communication Server improved messaging and permissions functionality, see the list of changes below:

Added new option that restricts IM other contacts that are not included to user's Contact List

New setting called "Prevent messaging with users that are not from contacts" added to Contact List tab of user's properties dialog in the console.

This option becomes available only if the contacts are locked on the server. Using this option will disable sending replies to contacts when they appear under Not In Contacts list even those users are located in visible/accessible Organizational Unit.

Added new setting that checks OU permission on delivery of private messages between users

The Messaging tab of the Options dialog box in the console added new checkbox called "Check OU permissions on delivering every personal message"

Recent versions of the communication server checked those permissions each time but it could make instant messaging slower in most of times. So now this option is available as a stand-alone and turned off by default.

Improved Active Directory Import Wizard

The server console added some improvements to import wizard. Now it does not stop/start the service that forced a disconnect of all users if the wizard has been executed in Update or Synchronize modes. Restart of the service occurs now only if the wizard went out from Create new mode.

Please note that it is required to update the messenger application to version 6.5.7 in order to support new option that prevents sending messaging to non-contacts users.

Minor update of Bopup Messenger software

New version 6.5.6 of Bopup Messenger client is available for download. This is a minor update of the software that changed a text of idle away message. Now the messenger automatically sends "I’ve been away from the computer since HH:MM" message on all incoming messages after 15 mins of idle, of course if appropriate option is set through the options.

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.

Log out function is available in IM clients even Simple or Windows Authentication are used

Both Bopup Messenger and Bopup Observer messaging clients improved "Log out..." function that is accessible from Messages menu. Now that item is available always when a messenger is connected and even Simple or Windows Authentication modes are used. Previously this menu option was available only if Private login/password authentication used.

Now it is possible to disconnect from the IM server without closing the messenger application. This will allow to change login name and enter to IM network with another credentials.

Another important change is that the messaging clients will bring and show "Login" pane in the main window every time when the same user has entered to the IM network from another computer/device and when only a single connection per each account is permitted. Now the pane will be shown not only if Private login/password used but also under Simple and Windows Authentication.
