Layer 100 and Performance Improvements#
API Schema updated to Layer 100.
Pyrogram is now able to handle message floods without slowing down. While there’s still a lot of room for extra performance, thanks to the community and in particular to @Talocan who helped with load tests, I was able to fix this major bottleneck which would have slowed down the library in case of huge amount of messages received - we are talking about 50-80 messages per second, which is quite a lot for a single user/bot to handle.
Added get_user_dc() to get a user’s assigned DC (Data Center).
Added read_history() to read (marking as read, double-tick) a chat history.
Added Filters.callback_data to filter callback query data (contributed by @ColinTheShark in #248 ).
Added send_animated_sticker() to send the new Telegram animated stickers in
.tgsformat. Note: this is still an experimental feature, not even all official clients properly support animated stickers and Telegram has not announced anything yet about this new feature.
Added iter_profile_photos() to iterate over a user or a chat profile photos sequentially.
Added a new section in the documentation: Debugging and Release Notes.
Added new FAQs in the documentation.
Added easter eggs.
unsaveparameter to send_animation(). Pass True in order to remove the GIF animation from your own collection (the server automatically adds them).
Bare lists, such as
[1, 2, 3, 4, 5]when coming from the Telegram raw API are now printed nicely.
PhotoSizetype has been replaced by Thumbnail, a much more interesting and useful name.
The Photo type has been revamped: forget
message.photo.sizes[-1].file_id, you can now simply use
message.photo.file_idto get the highest quality available, all the other sizes are kept as a list of thumbnails in the
All applicable media now have a
thumbsattribute to store all the available thumbnails (there can be more than one, sorted by ascending size).
When printing Pyrogram objects, phone numbers are now hidden and each digit replaced with a star
************. Date attributes are shown as human-readable dates instead of a unix timestamps. E.g.
2019-06-05 15:50:28. Note this is just a visual modification, when accessing the inner attributes, you will still get the same values (full number, unix timestamp).
get_profile_photos() and get_profile_photos_count() now work for both users and chats.
Chat and User types have new attributes:
export_chat_invite_link() wasn’t working on basic groups.
UserProfilePhotosto just ProfilePhotos for brevity, but also because such object can now store profile photos from both users and chats.
Due to internal server changes, the file_id format of all photo-like objects has changed. Types affected are Thumbnail, ChatPhoto and Photo.
Renamed some methods:
