Bopup IM Client Software Development Kit (SDK) is now available!

We are proud to announce that Bopup IM Client SDK version 1.0 has been released and now is available for download. Using this Software Development Kit developers and companies can create instant messaging client applications and software that uses our Bopup Communication Server.

Bopup IM Client Software Development Kit (SDK) is a toolkit for Windows platform that provides documentation, samples and COM components for building powerful instant messaging functionality into existing applications, creating and developing a chat messenger software based a client/server architecture. Applications built on this SDK interact and communicate with Bopup Communication Server (IM server software) that must be installed as a server-side part of the instant messaging system.

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.

IM Client SDK allows to create two types of the end-user applications: one-way messenger like Bopup Observer software and full-featured IM client like our Bopup Messenger. The SDK is freely distributed and it depends on a 45-day trial of Bopup Communication Server. Pricing for IM client applications that are written using our SDK is based on a regular pricing for Bopup Messenger and Bopup Observer software. For more information on pricing please refer our order page at http://www.bopup.com/order/

New version of Bopup Communication Server adds great functions

New version 4.0.9 of Bopup Communication Server has been released. This software is available with a free 45-day trial period and can be downloaded with no any registration from http://www.bopup.com/downloads/

What's new

Added function to save selected messages and file transfers from Archiving & Logging view to a text file

It is easy now to export selected data from the Message History shown in the Management Console to a text file. Select one or multiple messages and transfers by pressing and holding the Ctrl key and then go to "File\Save As..." in the main menu.

Added option to turn off logging and archiving instant messages sent through the communication server

Sometimes company's security policies require to do not store private information, instant messages and conversation history on it's servers. This improves an overall security and avoids situations when someone can access the message archive. But prior versions of our Bopup Communication Server log all messages sent between users by default and there was no option to disable the history.

New version of the IM server provides the setting to turn off the logging history. Now the Message History can be disabled on the "Logging" tab of the Options dialog box using the "Enable archiving and logging history on the communication server" checkbox. Please note that if you clear that box it will delete all messages currently stored in the IM server archive, i.e. all delivered (sent) and deleted & declined messages. Currently pending messages (offline messages) will not be deleted until those messages will be delivered to their recipients or deleted due to expiration timeout.

The server install is going back from MSI to EXE package

Today we released a new version of Bopup Communication Server that brings small improvements and changes. Version 4.0.8 is also distributed via EXE setup package files. We decided to move installation files from MSI extension to executable setups because it is easier to launch an EXE file with "Run as administrator" option on Windows Vista and later systems. Unfortunately Windows Explorer does not show that option in context menu if you right-click on a MSI file.

Since we received a lot of reports regarding installation issues of Bopup Communication Server on latest versions of Windows including 64-bit versions then we improved the setup and added additional verification of user's privileges (UAC). If the setup is running without required rights (full administrative privileges) then it shows appropriate error page.

It is strongly required to launch the setup package of the IM server with administrator privileges in order to properly install and register all modules and services in the system. It is easy to do that: right-click on the setup file and select "Run as administrator" option from context menu.
