What’s so new in EH Forwarder Bot 2 (and its modules)

After almost a whole year, EH Forwarder Bot 2 has finally more or less finalized its features and structures. Most of the modules have also entered beta stage together with the framework. This update will be a lot different from the previous version, and as suggested by the semantic versioning, it will not be compatible with the previous version.

So, I think it should be the time to introduce about the new features in EFB v2.

In this article, I’d like to introduce how EFB works now, and how to design channels for group chat tunneling with utilizing available channels in EFB. Here “group chat tunneling” means synchronizing messages across several groups in different platforms.
