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.
