Major update of the instant messaging server

New version 5.6.0 of Bopup Communication Server has been released.


In this release we fully rebuilt app's files in order to remove the dependency from libpq.dll module which is related to support of PostgreSQL/Postgres Pro database server. We added such support in version 5.5.0 and noticed that the core service started to crash suddenly with a fault address located in libpq.dll So we decided to build a separate setup package with support of Postgres servers and do not link program files with this third-party library if regular Microsoft SQL Server database family is used.

Removing the dependency of libpq.dll module also reduced sizes of all installation packages because it required Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 redistributable files which we could remove.

The messenger shows image thumbnails in conversation dialog and Message History

There is a great update of the messenger app available. We released version 7.2.0 of Bopup Messenger software which added support for image thumbnails shown in conversations and Message History window.

Conversation window shows thumbnails of transferred image files
Those thumbnails are shown for image files including .bmp, .jpg, .png, .gif, .tiff and many others formats if they are transferred between users. A user can click on thumbnails of received images to see a picture in a full size (opened in a system defined viewer app). So now it is easier and handy to exchange screenshots since they are displayed in conversations!

In addition the Message History dialog also shows such previews for sent and received images.

Message History displays thumbnails for exchanged images
We plan to release some other additions and improvements soon including file exchange usability. Stay connected!
