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.

Get new versions of the IM server and messaging clients

Today we released new versions of Bopup Communication Server, Bopup Messenger and Bopup Observer. In addition to many changes and improvements we made in the software it comes with all-new Confirmation feature that delivers a confirmed status back to a sender. Confirmed status is also logged in a local Message History and on the communication server and those confirmed messages are shown with double-check icon.

Currently Confirmation functionality is fully supported by Bopup Observer client only and can be enabled from the Options on the IM server. But we plan to extend this function in order to allow to send outgoing messages with confirmation status like urgent and high-priority messages.

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.

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.

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.

Set the amount of displayed messages in IM client conversations

Both Bopup Messenger and Bopup Observer clients have been updated. Among a lot of minor improvements and fixes the messenger application added a new hidden option named "MessagesInConversation" that controls the amount of both sent and received messages shown in conversations of sending dialogs. This option can be set during initial installation or upgrade of the IM client through setup.ini file or using Setup.ini Configuration Tool that is a part of the communication server.

By default the messenger shows all incoming and outgoing messages for current session established with the IM server. Using the new option it is now possible to show no messages (except unread) in conversations each time when a new sending dialog is opened. In this case the option must be set to 0 value.

Great updates of the IM software!

Today is the time to release great updates both of the IM server and messenger software. We released new releases of Bopup Communication Server version 4.1.3, Bopup Messenger 6.1.3 and Bopup Observer 5.1.2

What's new:

Automated rebuild of Contact Lists on the IM server works better and smoothly
The latest version of the communication server improves function of rebuilding users' contacts when some minor or great changes occur in user structure. Now status of Contact Lists are changed in the db even administrator declines immediate rebuild if users are moved to another Organizational Unit, accounts enabled/disabled or permissions have been edited for some OU. This gives a possibility to rebuild contacts manually from the Options dialog when all changes in the console are done.

Update contacts in the messenger on-the-fly
Another great addition in the software is automated delivery of newly built Contact Lists to connected users when the contacts have been manually and automatically re-organized in the Management Console. In this case the server notifies online users and force them to retrieve their Contact List again. Now rebuilt buddy lists are shown in the messenger instantly without it's restart and reconnect.

Send files faster and do not want for a recipient's response
The server adds new option that extends File Transfer functionality. It allows to transmit files and folders immediately on the server first even the recipient is online. Thus the sender has to do not wait while the recipient accepts or declines the transfer because the server receives it instantly. The new option can be found on the File Transfer page of the Options dialog box in the Management Console.

Fixed saving and restoring positions of the messengers on Desktop
Since prior versions of the messenger software added function to show the IM client on the Taskbar some our customers were experience issues with showing messenger windows on user's desktop. The new updates fix those issues that occurred if user closes minimized window from Taskbar.

No invalid text appended on sending graphic "smiles" in messages
Bopup Messenger fixes error when strange symbols appended and displayed on recipient's side after some graphic smiles.

Receive and find received files and documents easily
The latest versions of the messengers add new settings on the File Transfer tab in the Options dialog that allows to create sub-folder to place a received data and includes sender's name. In addition to existing option that create the same subdirectory named current date it is easy now to find files and documents received in the past. By the way, that setting are now moved to user's interface and available on the File Transfer page.

Conversations include group messages too within received private messages
The latest version of Bopup Messenger shows group messages too within personal messages received from selected contact when you open a conversation dialog (sending message window). Group messages sent by that user are marked with green color while personal messages received from him are red and ours messages are always blue.

Access the instant messengers from Taskbar on Windows desktop

New versions both of Bopup Messenger and Bopup Observer client software added a new setting to the Options dialog that allows to show the application in Taskbar. This is a useful addition because it is possible to access and bring the main window of the messenger on the front of Windows desktop if it is already open by clicking it's icon in Taskbar.

The server-side application, Bopup Communication Server, has been also updated. It comes with new version of Setup.ini Configuration Tool that supports then new IM client setting.

The IM client software also improved applying settings that are instantly downloaded from the communication server. Previously downloaded options are now deleted from the messenger if there is no any settings file uploaded on Bopup Communication Server. This function allows to reset current settings in the messengers simply by removing configuration file from Management Console.

The latest version of Bopup Messenger improved a speed of sending messages. No delay occurs in the client if text messages are typed quickly and sent rapidly. Even there is some error with empty message field or selected recipient in the interface shown balloon tooltips do not block and do not freeze any more!

Minor but useful updates of Bopup IM clients

We released new updates for the messenger software. Bopup Messenger version 6.1.1 and Bopup Observer 5.1.1 include some minor changes but important and useful additions.

Sending messages works faster

The new version of the messenger client removes a little delay on sending new messages in the conversation dialog. Prior versions disabled both the Send message button and message field while an outgoing message was delivering to the IM server. And this caused some nasty experience when outgoing messages are typed fast and need to be sent quickly. So we decided to remove the delay and to do not make the controls inactive. And the messenger "flies" now! Really!

Make it tiny

Now you can make the main window of the messenger shorter and thinner. It's a very useful ergonomic feature.

File Transfer dialogs remember their desktop positions

Both the sending and receiving files dialogs in the messenger now remember and keep their positions in order to restore the windows on the next appearance. If you transfer documents and set some Advanced options (available to Administrators and Power Users) then those settings are also remembered for subsequent transfers.

A lot of other improvements, minor changes and fixes

New update of Bopup Communication Server is available

Bopup Communication Server version 4.0.14 is now available for download at This is a minor update of the software but it comes with some great improvements.

What's new:

Added option to protect with password a launch of local Management Console

As you know you can manage your communication server remotely from another computer. It is possible just enable appropriate option and protect the sever with a secure password that must be entered during installation of remote Management Console and it's connection to the running instance of the IM server. But now a local installation of the console can be also protected. This version adds a new setting in the Interface tab called "Password protect launch of local Management Console" that asks for the password each time when you run your local Management Console. It is useful if the server computer is shared with users and they can work on it directly or via Terminal Services.

The new option is available only if remote management of the IM server is currently enabled.

Added ability to edit built-in and non-removable @BUILTIN_SENDER account on the IM server

This version of the communication server bring the built-in @BUILTIN_SENDER user account visible for editing in Management Console. This account is used by the server to send News messages and private messages to users and groups from the console. Some users asked us to change it's name because there was no option to change the account details or account name. Now this account is available in the console and you are able to add first and last names, edit it's descriptions, etc. Please note that the account cannot be deleted, disabled, renamed or moved to another Organizational Unit from the "_Default". The main idea was to make the sender name more friendly when it is showing in the messenger clients.

Fixed error in the Setup Wizard that occurs when only the Management Console is installed on Windows 64-bit systems

Version 4.0.14 of Bopup Communication Server also fixes setup error if only the Management Console is installed for remote control of an existing communication server. The error occurred only on Windows x64 platforms on the page of the Setup Wizard that asks the server address and password for connection.

Bopup Communication Server fixes a couple of issues if the logging Message History is disabled

New version 4.0.10 of Bopup Communication Server is released on March 30, 2012. This new version of the server fixes minor problems that may occur both on the server-side and instant messenger software if the option to log and archive Message History on the communication server is turned off.

Previous version 4.0.9 of Bopup Communication Server added a lot of improvements and went with new changes. Some of them was the option called "Enable archiving and logging history on the communication server" located on the "Logging" tab of the Options dialog box. Using that check box administrators can disable the Message History on the IM server at all. Sometimes that is useful and important in some companies.

Now version 4.0.10 fixes some issues that appear on IM client when an online message is successfully sent and the Message History is turned off on the IM server. In that case the instant messenger shows the sent message with the "The message has been saved on the server..." suffix in the conversation like for offline messages even the message goes to an online user.

The Setup Wizard also adds information on 19810 TCP/IP port that is used by the communication server as a primary port. Now it is easier to find and understand which network port should be configured and open on third-party firewall applications, router hardware, etc.

Bopup Messenger fixes issues with sending instant messages to multiple recipients

New version 5.5.13 of Bopup Messenger is ready for download. This fixes issues that occur on sending messages simultaneously to multiple users and/or assigned messaging groups.

What's new:

As you know the messenger supports multiple selection in the Contact List/Groups by pressing and holding Ctrl key. So if a user selects multiple recipients on the "My Contacts" tab in the main window of the messenger, clicks "Send message" button to open sending dialog box, types his message and presses the "Send message" button then the following error message is shown even multiple users are selected: "Please select one or multiple recipients from your contacts".

Another issue is related to displaying message in the Conversation field of the sending dialog box if it has been sent to multiple recipients. The message text appears missing or with a very small size of the font.

New versions of the instant messenger add the functionality of forwarding messages and fix security issues

Today new versions of Bopup Messenger 5.5.8 and Bopup Observer 4.3.22 have been released.

This use adds a new function called "Forward message". Now Bopup Messenger offers forwarding of incoming messages to other recipients and employees. It is easy to perform this: click the "Forward message" on the toolbar on the "Today's Messages" screen or select the "Message/Forward..." item from the main menu or use Ctrl+D hotkey.

The new versions of the instant messaging clients also fix issues that are related to security and confidentiality area. Now if users use the messenger under the same Windows logon ID on the same computer and enter to the IM network with Private login/password then the IM application stores all the user's settings and message history files separately.

Bopup Messenger version 5.5.5 fixes and improves notification functionality on receiving new messages

Today, the first version of the Bopup IM software has been released in 2011 year. Bopup Messenger version 5.5.5 is now available for download. What are advantages that come with this version?

Fixed error on sending messages with Enter key if multiple sending dialogs are opened

This bug fix is related to the "Send messages with Enter key" option in the messenger. If that option is enabled and multiple sending dialogs are opened then the Enter key works only in the last opened dialog.

Fixed small issues with contact list icon notification and flashing dialog titles on receiving messages

Previous versions starting from 5.5.3 added a new function that flashes sending dialog titles in the Task Bar if a new message comes and should be red. There were some minor bugs and issues with it and sometimes the dialog title still flashes even the new message has been displayed and red.

Fixed issue with two instances of the messenger after Windows system starts

We heard from our users that sometimes the messenger starts twice on Windows startup. We found that Bopup Messenger creates two run values in the registry because it incorrectly detects a version of Windows.

Fixed error with deleting and reseting settings of the program on upgrade

This is a very annoying bug because all user's settings are reseted and not restored on upgrading to a new version if a common setup.ini file is not used on a computer. This bug comes from version 5.5.2 in which we add support for predefined options in the setup.ini.

Added support for the "UpgradeIU" option in the setup.ini file that manages the Setup Wizard interface on upgrade

A new option in the setup.ini configuration file is added. It is called "UpgradeIU" and is located under the new [INSTALL] section of the file. This option lets manage a user interface of the Setup Wizard on an upgrade procedure. Please note that the option will work only if you feature on the communication server, upload the MSI package and use the setup.ini file. You can specify and set one from 3 available modes: 1) Show setup dialogs with automated update; 2) Show only progress indicator on upgrade; 3) Use a silent mode with no setup dialogs and progress.
For more information see description of the setting in the setup.ini file itself.

Bopup Messenger 5.5.1: New hidden option is added

As you know we always work on the software and improve our . We also hear our clients and add a suggested functionality. So we've just released new version 5.5.1 of Bopup Messenger which adds the "OpenMinimizedSendingDialog" hidden option to the setup.ini configuration file. Let's explain how it works.

Our messenger includes a standard setting in it's options which allows to open a new conversation dialog on receipt of new instant messages. And that sending dialog box is opened above all other windows on the desktop. That's good.

But what should we do if we want to open that conversation automatically in a minimized state?

Then you can use the "OpenMinimizedSendingDialog" specified in the setup.ini file. When a new message comes and the option to open a new conversation is enabled then the sending dialog will be opened and minimized in the Task Bar.

Try the new feature by downloading the new version of Bopup Messenger.
