QuickFIX 1.13.0 is available at http://www.quickfixengine.org
Release notes at http://www.quickfixengine.org/NEWS
Alright. We got a new release out now. There is a good amount of
fixes/updates in this release, but I'm sure the most anticipated is FIX
5.0/FIXT 1.1 support. Please start setting up your FIX 5.0 connections
because we are eager to get some early feedback on this. So please
start testing it out in your systems and let us know how it goes.
Some additional notes. Support for Visual Studio 6 has been dropped.
It is getting very difficult to get any support from Microsoft here, so
we think it's time to move on. On the upside we have added support for
Visual Studio 2008 and 2010. We have also dropped the JNI api. It was
by far the most difficult to maintain and QuickFIX/J is mature enough
that it can do everything the JNI api could and more. Switching to
QuickFIX/J is as easy as swapping jar files, so that is what we now
recommend for Java users.
The Python, Ruby, and .NET apis are still fully supported.
We are up to 110,000 downloads for QuickFIX, 50,000 for QuickFIX/J, and
15,000 for the logviewer. Over 175,000 downloads in all.
I want to thank everyone who has contributed to the product. I don't
think it is said enough but we get a lot of support from the community.
Always check the THANKS and CONTRIBUTERS files to see the people who
have helped out. A special thanks goes to Connamara Systems who have
contributed their time, hardware and developers to the project. Their
involvement in the project will be increasing. Expect to see more
contributions from them.
