libpurple-telegram is being deprecared and relpaced by: tdlib-purple
Telegram-purple https://github.com/majn/telegram-purple that has been used to make the few tests with telegram is on lifeline support and by the will of their own devs is going to be replaced with
tdlib-purple: https://github.com/ars3niy/tdlib-purple/ which at this point seems to have more active development and seems to be more feature rich.
tdlib-purple uses as a backend
tdlib (https://telegram.org/blog/tdlib`) a library to build telegram clients, that is much more feature rich, even supporting voip calls for telegram among other, features.
Should we look into this new plugin?
Or at least add it to the README page?
