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.
