Finally version 1.3 is available for download and from Mac App Store and Microsoft Store.

- It should be able to autoupdate better.
- It supports saving several proxies in Connection Settings, including MTProto proxy support.
- Also you can use Socks5 proxies for calls.
- And finally you can use formatting (select text and Ctrl/Cmd + B/I for Bold/Italic, Ctrl/Cmd + K for a link with custom text, Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + M for monospace font).
