New version is out!
1.4.7 (TD 3.3)

Last release in this year which is needed because who knows what happen if stable branch won't receive update until January 1. Luckily, the "make it before January 1" thing is not the only point of the release: new features are also in stock.

Changes since last beta version
• Instead of removing window size restiction minimum window size was changed. It solves the same problem, but at least window is not breaking until the point it's not usable.
• Ability to switch accounts by hotkeys.
• Added icon near the author name in message.
• Message about unsupported mode is now shown when opening animated profile picture in picture-in-picture mode. Implementing PiP for animated profile pictures is hard, but leaving the crash as-is is a bad idea, so it's disabled there until better days.

Fixes since last beta version
• Fixed ranks in admin list.
• Fixed automatic downloading of media files in 32-bit Windows version.

1.4.8 (TD 3.3)

This release is unexpected, but important because of severe crash in Saved Messages. If you haven't caught it, you're in luck, but it's better to update anyway.

Better font settings. Thanks to the @Shlyupa's work, there is now a full list of fonts after an each font name field, and also there is a slider to change font size. Earlier font size could be changed only through JSON settings. I've only added a "+" before non-negative numbers to give you a hint that font size is relative.

• Fixed severe crash in Saved Messages.
• Fixed non-clickable part of message author name if there an icon near it.

• Internal rework of Kotatogram Settings.
• Restart to save settings now can be delayed.
• Select time when jumping to date in chat.
• Experimental settings from Telegram Desktop now are always shown.
• Name icon colors are now same as name colors.
• Fixed profile picture cropping in native Windows notifications.
• "Emoji panel by hover" option replaced by default one.
• "Show profile" as first menu item option.
• New macOS icon (by gershik).

Changes by blank-x
• Go to chat on Shift+Enter in Forward window.
• Warning when forwarding quiz unquoted.
• "Copy callback data" menu item now shown on callback buttons only.
• Fixed useless message author name trimming when it has an icon.
• Fixed tg://user?id links for 64-bit IDs.
• Fixed useless "Mention user" menu item for channels.
• Fixed profile picture rounding in invite link window and calls window.
• Fixed filters in folders by administrator rights.

Important: I'm suspending development of Kotatogram. More about that and full change log can also be read on site:
Since Telegram massively revokes usernames of channels considered inactive by them, here is the notice: Kotatogram isn't dead, update will be soon.
About Kotatogram's state

The silence has been gone too long, and with it more people asking in comments, why, or some even consider the app dead.

So I'm telling it once again: Kotatogram isn't dead. I don't have enough time for it, but there's a progress.

Since I was tired of countless merge conflicts, I've made patches-track branch. This is an additional branch, where each change stored in separate commit instead of chronological order. It allows me to see what is broken in each feature. Currently it's paused on 4.1.1.

However, there's a second branch, which is paused on 4.8.4, and named, of course, patches-track-4.8.4. Main work is happening on it. Sadly, there's a lot to fix still.

So when is the update?

I'll explain: "soon" is the reference to Telegram's tweet "Soon." (which I frequently use as a sticker), and actually means that there's no specific release date.

However, maybe it makes sense to make some posts about what's happening in terms of Kotatogram work, so it would be much clearer on which state it is. I'm not sure if I should publish them here, or it's better to make a separate channel for them.

Also I've decided to resurrect the channel with test versions and uploading ones that I use to test the features. Please note that they're not expected to be stable.

Since old username was taken away and sent into auction, test versions can be found here:
New test build and and new development blogs channel

I've thought about how to do it properly and decided that short summaries will be posted here, and most development posts will be in separate channel.

So the first thing is, here is new channel:

I've started with attempt to update patches-track-4.8.4 branch to 4.14. Suprisingly, it took less time than I expected, so I've built the new test version, taking a little of 4.14.1 and some commits after it. Note that bugs aren't fixed there, but it supports everything TDesktop 4.14 have.

That's all for today, other things will be soon.
