This is the most recent release of Bopup Messenger.
The messenger successfully installs, runs and connects to IM server. It is able to organize and see contacts, to receive instant messages from other users, and to send such messages. Users' presence in Contact List is correctly updated when someone from contacts enters or leaves the IM network. There was also no issue with showing Message History window that originally uses a built-in Microsoft WebBrowser control. Offered to install Wine Gecko on it's first opening and then started working correctly. IM archiving works (used SQlite engine) and messages are saved.
What does not
It seems this version has a problem with receiving files/folders that have a size greater than ~700KB. A progress of receiving files stops and freezes once around 700KB has been successfully received. At the same time the messenger transfers large files with no issues.
What was not tested
Most of the settings such as keeping the messenger on top of desktop, playing sounds on receipt of new messages, icon blinking in system tray.
