Popper is a small, neat solution to messaging between Linux and Windows-based machines. It sits quietly in the system tray and pops up a message should one be received from a computer on the network. All 32-bit Windows variants come with some sort of messaging program compatible with these kind of messages, and there are several available for Linux. Samba provides the neccessary magic of sending and receiving.

Release Notes: Several minor bugs have been fixed. There are changes to the message popup dialog. This release has been ported to KDE 3.
Release Notes: This release adds a bugfix for changing workgroups and a config option for changing the root host for a workgroup search.
Release Notes: Makefile fixes so the installer will install the message receiving script properly.
Release Notes: This release changes the received message mechanism to use file modification times instead of signals so that the executable no longer needs to be suid. It now allows for systems that don't have an /etc/HOSTNAME or one that has dubious contents, and the popper-send.sh script has been introduced so it will now receive messages.
No changes have been submitted for this release.
