LiveIMs improvements and HUD fix

The issue with broken HUD “new IM” indicator has been fixed. It works properly now: the indicator appears with new IMs arrive; and disappears when you read all these IMs.

Also, the Live IMs add-on web interface has been improved:

  • the dialog messages made compact (excessive sender’s name removed),
  • “mark all IMs read” button added.

New Simple Groups API

We added new API calls to allow managing groups without a personal bot.

SmartBots allows managing groups by “system” bots. Such groups run on a bot provided by SmartBots (the advantages are a cheaper price and easier management).

As a beginning, two API calls have been added:

  • send_group_im – the command to send a message to the group chat,
  • set_http_callback – the command to set HTTP callbacks and get them when something happens in a group.

The currently available API calls are listed here.
