updating to Qt4

With the help of a new member of the Qtstalker project, we are attempting to update the codebase from its use of Qt-3.3+ to Qt-4.3+

Last week we released Qtstalker-0.36 as the last Qt3 version.

Users of main trunk can continue, however it must be today's revision. There is a CVS tag "trunk-after-qt3to4-mixup" :-)

There will be a CVS branch called "qtstalker-qt4-branch" where we will do the update.... read more

qtstalker 0.33 released!

Hi all.

This is a big release with lots of new features and improvements. Too many to list, so read the CHANGELOG for details.

I warn users of 0.32 that wish to upgrade that there is no backwards compatibility with CUS rules in indicators, scanners and backtesting. Unfortunately you will have to recode them using the new scripting facility. It's much easier now. Sorry folks, but I just don't have the time anymore to spend on these things. It's been over a year since the last official release! It's worth the extra time.... read more

Yahoo Quotes

Yahoo has within the last few days changed the URL for quote downloads. So, all released versions have stopped working.

The current CVS version fixes this problem. I will have to hurry a 0.26 release.

Yahoo Quote Plugin

On 20030917, Yahoo made a change to the historical quote format that caused the Yahoo quote plugin to reject the data. This has now been fixed and the changes are in CVS.

Posted by Steve Stratos 2003-09-20

CBOT Plugin

It appears that the CBOT site has changed access methods for EOD data. The CBOT plugin is not able to get any data since 20030716. ASCII files are no longer available for download in the old CSV format.

I will be working on a solution for this change. Sadly, it seems that one by one the exhanges are trying to make it as difficult as possible for the avreage person to collect data. All the history data is in pdf and xls formats. Way to go guys, lock up the data in proprietary formats and alienate the small traders.... read more

0.19 compile errors

I have been getting alot of Qt compile error reports with the latest version (0.19) from users. Many people are trying to compile with Qt 3.0* and failing. This is because I have been using Qt 3.1.2 for development and did not update the docs to mention this.

I am currently working on backporting all the changes to be compatible with Qt 3.0*. The current CVS version will compile with Qt 3.0*. Those of you who have Qt 3.0* can download the CVS version and use that until I am able to release a new version.... read more
