[Snort-users] internal load balancing for multi-thread processing (Snort3)

Looking into Snort3 with multiple CPUs I found a thread from 2015 which says:
"Snort++ currently requires external load balancing if you want to use multiple
packet threads with live traffic. In that case you can specify
-i "eth0 eth1 eth2" or whatever. Likewise with pcaps. We are planning to add support
for internal load balancing in a future version."
Is it still the case that some form of external load balancing is required for doing multi-threaded Snort?
