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.

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.

Minor update of the Android app

A minor update of Bopup Messenger for Android platform is released and it's version 1.0.6 beta is available. This release added support for notification when the communication server interrupts the established connection if another user enters to the IM network from Windows PC or Android device using the same account name. In that case the messenger app disconnects from the IM server and shows an appropriate message event.

Messenger for Android comes with great improvements

New version 1.0.3.140614 Beta of Bopup Messenger for Android is available for download. This version added few additions and improvements, review them below.

Added support for events on addition, change or removal of assigned messaging groups 
Now the messenger supports instant events sent by the IM server on messaging groups. It immediately shows newly added groups, updates renamed name/description of existing group, and removes groups from Contact List if a user has been unassigned from them.

Added support to display forwarded messages that have been sent from another IM client under the same user account
The app receives and displays messages in conversations that have been sent from another IM client connected under the same user account. The option to forward instant messages to all connected messengers is managed on the IM server.

Fixed issue with updating user presence in Contact List
Another major fix is about update of a user presence status shown in contacts. We found that prior versions of the Android app updated only first user in the Contact List, the latest version fixes this issue.

Yes, we understand that this first version of our Android app is too simple. It has no options yet, cannot organize contacts, create user account on a first connection to the communication server, the app does not provide file transfer functions and history... But it is important for us to hear feedbacks and reports from testers that are interested in a future use of the Android app in their environment and have a various range of Android devices.

Interact with a new version of the IM server smoothly!

We released a new version 4.3.0 of Bopup Communication Server which improved the Welcome page of Management Console and added other improvements.


See overall configuration progress of the IM server with helpful tips

It is a known thing that our IM server offers a huge number of functions and provides a lot of functionality. And new users can be in confusion and frustrated on a first start of the console: too many things must be performed like adding user contacts, enabling right authentication, etc. What to do first? And we understand how to important to support new users, allow them to configure the server with ease and smoothness. Thus now Management Console interacts with a user, it helps to move administrator through all required steps in order to get the communication server ready to accept clients and to enable communication for them.

The most important feature is the tooltips above each part of the server shown on the Welcome page, i.e. User Accounts, Messaging Groups, News Messages, File Distribution, Archiving & Logging and IM Client Updates & Branding. Of course users are the primary key to organize the server so the console shows only a single tooltip above User Accounts section on it's first startup if there is no accounts. This will force to create users first instead of other things and features.

Once at least a single user has been created or imported the console unlocks other general tasks and shows tooltips for them. Once a task completed it is marked with a check sign above it instead of the tooltip. Now no matter what task is performed first, Groups, News, File Distribution — it would be moved to the left and placed near User Accounts task. So general blocks on the Welcome page are now built dynamically!

Another great function is a progress bar that indicates an overall process of tasks completion. It has a green color and moves at bottom of the task blocks from 0% to 100%.


The Setup Wizard prevents installation of built-in SQL Server on Windows 20012/8

We also improved a setup package and now the installation wizard of the communication server recognizes latest Windows 2012 and version 8 if a user selects to install built-in SQL Server within the server. Since the IM server is shipped with MS SQL Server 2005 Express edition it is not supported by those versions of Windows. So the setup would bring an information dialog that explains how to avoid this issue and manually set up SQL Server 2008 or 2012, for example.


Added support for Android clients

Did you hear that we are working on Anroid clients in a past few months? Our first mobile messenger is going to a release soon and version 4.3 of Bopup Communication Server now officially supports it. Currently we are on alpha testing phase of Android software.
