CF News Bot — is a bot which is able to notify you about codeforces news (in the telegram) you can get more details in the first part here.

Yesterday evening beta version was released and is already available in the telegram @CodeforcesNewsBot.

Most of the changes affected the internal work of the bot, for example, improved stability...

The biggest improvement is — the telegram markup support, so bold, italic, etc are now shown properly (a couple of images as an example).

But still, there are a lot of things to do, and the work continues.

If you have any questions write me st5pub@yandex.ru, or in the codeforces "talks", the source is open and available here https://gitlab.com/FrozenAndrey/cf-news-bot.

Recently codeforces created own telegram channel, but it doesn't have the functionality I need (for now there were only notifications about failures and contests, frequently, right before them), of course, it is better than nothing, but I want something more, I didn't find anything suitable on the internet, so I created my own bot.

It is already running @CodeforcesNewsBot.

Now it is in the alpha version, but I hope at the start of the new year it will become stable.

It is already able to receive and operatively notify you about news from home page or from "top" page (it depends on how you set it up).

In the future, I am going to add more functionality (for example notifications about contests) and improve the interface (now it is quite raw).

If you found a bug (want to ask a question or something else...), send me a message using codeforces or email st5pub@yandex.ru.

Thanks! *Happy New Year everyone!

UPD: This bot is now distributed under the GPLv3 license and you can find the source code here https://gitlab.com/FrozenAndrey/cf-news-bot.
