Layer 116 and lots of goodies#
New Features & Enhancements#
Updated the API schema to Layer 116.
Added support for uploads up to 2000 MiB in size to both user and bot identities.
Added support for in-memory uploads. You can now pass a BytesIO object when uploading a file that lives in-memory; make sure to set the object’s
.nameattribute to a file name before using it, e.g.:
b = BytesIO(...); b.name = "filename.zip"(contributed by @OctoNezd in #261).
Added support for profile videos. Pass a video file to set_profile_photo or set_chat_photo to update your profile picture using a video.
Added an automatic sleep mechanism for flood wait exceptions. Use Client’s
sleep_thresholdparameter to set a sleep threshold for flood wait exceptions happening globally in a client instance, below which any request that raises a flood wait will be automatically invoked again after sleeping for the required amount of time. Flood wait exceptions requiring higher waiting times will be raised.
linked_chatto Chat objects. Useful to get the the linked discussion group (in case of channels) or the linked channel (in case of supergroups).
Added support for joining linked chats with the Chat.join bound method.
Filters.regex has been granted superpowers and can now be applied to handlers that receive Message, CallbackQuery or InlineQuery (previously it was only working for Message updates). This made
Filters.callback_dataobsolete which has been removed.
Added support for basketball and football animation of the random dice. Choose between different animations (dice, darts, basketball, football) by specifying the emoji parameter in the method send_dice.
Added search_global method for searching messages globally from all of your chats.
CallbackQuery.answer optional arguments are now actually optional in code.
Added the session name in log lines (contributed by @CrisMystik in #401).
Added Filters.linked_channel to filter messages coming from the channel connected to the chat.
file_nameto file-related functions (contributed by @demget in #308 and @saidgadjiev in #440).
DEBUGlevel will now show more relevant information about what is being sent and received.
Updated the Bot API diagram in the documentation (minor graphical issues).
No need to add
via_botfrom Bot API v4.9 because Pyrogram already has it since long time ago.
Message.linkattribute to obtain the message link in form of a URL (contributed by @ColinTheShark in #442).
Extended set_slow_mode to accept None as argument for disabling the slow mode.
parse_modeparameter to Client. Set your desired parse_mode when creating a client instance (contributed by @mendelmaleh in #443).
send_document will now send actual documents, even when uploading a video file.
Updated instructions for accessing test servers in tdesktop.
Minor fixes and cleanups (also contributed by @alissonlauffer in #439).
Fixed docs about update_profile (contributed by @CyanBook in #395).
Fixed an issue in which messages sent with entities at the end of the text would result in messages without entities.
Fixed some small typos in the documentation.
Filters.callback_datahas been removed in favor of Filters.regex.
