New Quotes Plus plugin v1.6.0

New Quotes Plus plugin (version 1.6.0) has been released now.

It is available for download from:
http://www.amibroker.com/bin/QP2.dll

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Download the plugin
  2. Copy it into “Plugins” subfolder of AmiBroker directory (make sure that old version is overwritten with new one so only ONE copy of QP2 plugin is inside Plugins subfolder)
  3. Run AmiBroker (to confirm that correct plugin has been installed you can go to Tools->Plugins menu. The list of plugins should show Quotes Plus plugin version 1.6.0)
  4. To create database with QP2 plugin follow help file: http://www.amibroker.com/guide/h_extsources.html

CHANGES FOR VERSION 1.6.0 (as compared to version 1.5.1)

  1. Exclude symbols without quotes works correctly even if “only with status = 0” box is unchecked
  2. “Only active” box has been renamed to “only with issue_status = 0” because of the fact that issue status field is not reliable way of detecting active symbols. Also by default this field is now unchecked

AmiBroker Feedback Center launched

Today we launched new on-line service called AmiBroker Feedback Center at:
http://www.amibroker.com/feedback/

AmiBroker Feedback Center is the area to enter feature requests / suggestions and bug reports, view issues reported by others and track development and resolution/fixes of the bugs submitted.

In not so distant future there will be voting capability added that will allow everyone to show how given suggestion is important for the community.

In order to enter AmiBroker Feedback Center please login with your AmiBroker members’ area username / password that was included in your registration e-mail.

If you forgot or lost your password you can retrieve it automatically using password reminder service at: http://www.amibroker.com/login.html

Note that this is “external” list (visible to all registered users) but we also manage our “internal” TO-DO list that is not exposed to the public for many reasons (competitive, technical, etc). The “internal” list contains all things submitted in the past so there is no real reason to re-submit old suggestions if they were confirmed already. But it also does not hurt if you do.

We also reserve right to add/edit/remove any entries posted in AmiBroker Feedback Center on our own discretion.
