Cutegram is an open-source Telegram application, similar to Sigram. It is developed in Qt5 and QML and uses the libqtelegram and the libappindicator libraries.
Like other Telegram clients for Linux, it has support for Emoji, allows the users to send data by dragging it in the message window and gets integrated with the system notifications.
The latest version available is Cutegram 2.7.1, which has been released a while ago, coming with the below changes:
- Fix the map bugs, rendered blurry
- Add emojione to the emojis
- Improve window border on the OSX
- Fix mute/unmute problem
- Fix link and tag highlighter problems
- Many improve on the libqtelegram-ae and TelegramQML libraries
