next release.... read more

No release this week

As you may have noticed, the recent releases were made on a bi-weekly basis, in an attempt to get a regular and predictable release schedule.
Unfortunately I haven't had enough time to work on EclipseTrader in the past days, so the new release planned for today can't be build.
I'll try to get back to a regular release schedule as soon as possible.

Eclipse Trader 0.24 Released

This release doesn't have many new features, most of the changes were made to enhance the existings, cleanup the code and fix some bugs. The most prominent changes are the charts autoscale option and the realtime data collector for intraday charts.

The charts autoscale allows the chart to resize itself based on the data that is currenly visible, and not based on all the available data.

The realtime data collector allows to automatically build the intraday charts while watching the price changes. For the data collector to work properly you need to keep the program running and the data streaming active while the exchange market is open. Interruptions in the price streams are not backfilled, unless the historical data providers allows the merge of the data (currently supported only by Borsa Italiana).... read more
