Minor fixes and improvements of the IM server and messenger client

We updated both Bopup Communication Server and Bopup Messenger software. New version 4.4.1 of the IM server fixed issue with sending News messages in One time only mode. This update also resolved problem with installation of remote Management Console.

Both the server and messenger improved notification support for a change of show/hide assigned users option in the messaging group properties. Now the IM client immediately reflects to this change if the option has been modified on the server console.

Bopup IM Client SDK is now also friendly with IPv6

New version 1.2 of Bopup IM Client SDK supports networks with only IPv6 protocol enabled. This release also added support for new flags set for users' Contact List and Messaging Groups on the communication server.

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.

Bopup IM software added support for IPv6 protocol

We are proud to announce that both the communication server and IM client software now support IPv6 protocol that is the most recent version of the Internet Protocol (IP). It is intended to replace current version IPv4. The IM server supports also IPv4 so the software can accept connections using different protocols at the same time from messenger clients.

Bopup Communication Server also added new option to Messaging Group profiles that allows to hide a list of assigned users to the group and to do not show them in user's Contact List. So the displayed group cannot be expanded.

Another improvement is related to sorting messages and file transfers shown in Pending, Sent and Deleted/Declined views under Message History in the console. Now the server uses DATETIME SQL data type instead of SMALLDATETIME type used previously that includes seconds within hour and minutes.

By default the messenger shows these indicators and new setting must be used from the Options to turn this off.

Another small improvement is about group conversations that now show '@' symbols in their titles in beginning group name.

Critical update of the messenger app for Android

We updated Bopup Messenger for Android and released it's version 1.0.9. Previous version 1.0.8 that came 3 days ago contains a critical bug that crashes the app on it's startup. The reason was in ProGuard tool that is used to build a release application. We fixed settings of that tool and it seems that now the IM client starts and works correctly. IM Client version 1.0.9 for Android is already available on Google Play market.

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.
