Hello @jkandasa ,
I wanted to update Telegram configuration on my Mycontroller setup, version 1.6.0-SNAPSHOT,

Numeric value (537757xxxx) out of range of int.
any chance to get it fixed ?
@fsgrazzutti It is possible we have to change the
I worked while ago in 1.x version. I have to setup the development environment in my local laptop. might take sometime to get the fix.
Have you tried MyController 2.x? I believe we have almost all the features from 1.x in MC 2.x
no, I did not tried it yet, I am a bit scared about the installation. I recently migrated v1.6 to a windows 10 PC
@fsgrazzutti ok, I will update you, when I fix it in v1.x. thanks!
@fsgrazzutti with the help of GitHub action I built the bundle and pushed it in to SNAPSHOT location. Have not tested yet. Let me know if you face a difficulty.
@jkandasa I finally had the chance to test the SNAPSHOT and it works !
Now I have just to remember how to send the sensor states.
Thanks a lot !
