the new features.
June 20, 2000 - Today Kanex Group Inc. unveiled a significant upgrade of
its flagship application. MacPopUp is a program that allows Mac users to
exchange instant messages with other users on any local area network (LAN).
With MacPopUp, you can send and receive messages from different operating
systems such as Mac OS, Windows 95/98, Windows NT/2000, Windows for
Workgroups, Linux and other UNIX OSes.
The new MacPopUp 2.0 contains several new and enhanced features, including:
* Improved User List - We have dramatically improved the function that
automatically locates recipients available on the network. Now you can see
not only computers, which you can exchange messages with, but also MacPopUp
determines the messenger type of the available users i.e. if it is MacPopUp
for Mac, MacPopUp for Windows or any other compatible client. The
application also checks if a user is in an on-line or off-line mode.
* Guaranteed Message Delivery - MacPopUp 2.0 after sending a message,
checks if a recipient received the message. The MacPopUp application
displays a warning if the message was not delivered or if no confirmation
was received. And accordingly, if the warning is not displayed then the
message was successfully delivered. Additionally, the MacPopUp application
can automatically resends messages if a recipient is currently off-line.
* Auto-Save Received Messages - Now even if a failure occurs or if your
computer power is down, all messages you have received are saved. Thus, a
user has an archive of the messages he has received.
Also we have fixed some insignificant bugs and improved compatibility with
the Windows version of the MacPopUp application.
