User groups are the main improvement introduced in version 5.50. For earlier versions, we recommended using channels (rooms) for user grouping. Since they had lists of users associated with them, it allowed you to create proper grouping and organization. This approach is largely efficient in that it supports association with channels (possibility to send messages directly between all group members using channel capabilities). However, the approach had some problems that could only be solved using a system of user groups that was first introduced in 5.50. The list of users can now be switched to the user groups mode and be fully configured. However, you can still group by channels. Moreover, since there are two groups of users, you can configure one to use grouping by channels and the second one to use user groups (default setting). Introduction of the user groups system was not just a regular update - it's a deeply integrated system that affected lots of other related functions. For example, it's now possible to leave a multi-recipient message on the server (to a user group). Each group member will get a message regardless of their server connection status. Another modified aspect of the program is individual user configuration. Now you can choose any color/sound/ignore mode for the entire group. Owners of corporate licenses will be able to define groups from the server. Administrators can also manage clients' group editing rights.

     Various interface elements have also been modified, and specifically:

     User list options that had been accessible through the context menu only are now accessible in the program settings window as well. Therefore, owners of corporate licenses can set them from the server.

     You can now use the program settings window to individually configure users, groups and channels. Therefore, virtually any changes can be made from the main program settings window.

     Improved the interface of file exchange in messages.

     The received messages window now has buttons for quick navigation to the first and last messages.

     Added a quick search block to the list of limitations.

     When deleting a message, the list of the most recent reasons is now saved.

     When deleting a rights object and removing a limitation, the scroll and the value in the search field are no longer reset.

     New options are available:

     Possibility to activate logging of both file reception and file sending events.

     Possibility to disable the automatic overwriting of received files. If matching files are found, the program will show a warning.

     Possibility to disable the display of history in public channels for traffic-saving purposes.

     Other new features:

     Separation of temporary files with UAC support became possible. The new separation type is activated using the -appdata_TEXT key.

     If access to a server is forbidden with a ban, you can change your account name.

     When an account is deleted, all associated legal objects are automatically deleted as well.

     Added a possibility to select specific channels for server-side logging.

     Finally, one of the most important new features. A new portable version of the program is now available for download. It differs in that there is no installer, that it stores all temporary files in its own installation folder, disables the autostart option in Windows. Therefore, this version can be transferred from one computer to another on an optical drive and it won't leave any signs of use.
