CHANGES FOR VERSION 5.82.1 (as compared to 5.82.0)

  1. AFL Engine: fixes for stability issues in 5.81.0/5.82.0
  2. Filter dialog: a matching count wasn’t updated on opening the dialog. Fixed.
  3. Bug report window made a little bigger so at least crash address is seen when someone sends screenshot instead of text

CHANGES FOR VERSION 5.82.0 (as compared to 5.81.0)

  1. UI: Interpretation and Commentary windows now support color text (via EncodeColor), bold and italic styles (tags: for bold, for italic)
  2. UI: Notepad, Interpretation and Commentary windows use default GUI font instead of hard-coded Tahoma now
  3. AFL: functionality of PlotGrid() function extended
  4. UI: Filter dialog now displays number of matching symbols in real-time as selections are made
  5. AFL Editor: added 4 new snippets under “Function” category
  6. AFL: In 5.81.0 CategoryGetName returned nothing (void) instead of string type when specified category did not exist. Fixed (empty string is returned now)
  7. AFL engine: in v5.81 access violation could occur when AFL array size was 0. Fixed.
  8. New Analysis: portfolio backtest processing was attempted even if there was no symbols that matched “apply to” filter. Fixed (unnecesary processing is skipped now).
  9. AFL: CCI function speeded up by 50%
  10. Inserting indicator with Param() calls into chart when currently selected symbol had no quotes caused exception. Fixed.

CHANGES FOR VERSION 5.81.0 (as compared to 5.80.3)

  1. AFL Engine: custom memory allocator does not use Microsoft runtime lib for reference tracking anymore. Result – complex formulas with lots of loops and OLE (especially low-level custom backtests) run upto 3 times faster in 32 bit and 4 times faster in 64-bit
  2. AFL Editor: Parameter info tip significantly enhanced – now it re-opens on typing each , (comma) and highlights current parameter to be entered.
  3. UI: Column setup dialog: added Mark All / Toggle All buttons
  4. AFL: GetFormulaPath() function added – returns full formula file path
  5. AFL Editor: Smart reference highlighting implemented (usage: mark a word and all references become highlighted).
  6. AFL Editor: Find/Replace shows a message box when reached the end of the file and offers restarting from the beginning if new “Wrap around” option is turned on.
  7. AFL Engine: code refactoring for reduced size and improved speed
  8. AFL Engine: when value of unsupported type was appended to string a crash could occur. Fixed.
  9. AFL Engine: when IIf was called the memory upsized from scalar to array could get freed twice (wrong). Fixed
  10. AFL: MACD() and Signal() functions made faster (approx 1.5-2x times)
  11. Analysis: Interest is added at the beginning of next bar (instead of end of current bar), to account for overnight rate. This also fixes the problem of ignoring interest in v.> 5.69
  12. UI: fixed yet another place where entering customization changed working dir

KNOWN ISSUES:

  1. No known.
