Version 4.5.26 Released

Postby Avarin » Fri Sep 19, 2014 2:58 pm

An upgrade to Version 4.5.26 is now available, containing a number of important fixes and enhancements to the latest release. The following primary changes were made:

* Refresh the links to Yahoo Finance price servers. When importing prices from Yahoo Finance, StrataSearch will first check the website for changes to the Yahoo URLs. This allows StrataSearch users to download prices from Yahoo without a program update after Yahoo changes their links. But if the StrataSearch website is down, the program defaults to hardcoded links. This program update refreshes those links to ensure they are current in the event the StrataSearch website is down.

* Add new formulas dx2, adx2 and adxr2 with decimal usage. StrataSearch generally uses the original formulas as designed by the actual authors. For the dx, adx and adxr formulas, Welles Wilder rounded many of the the computations and final result to the nearest integer. However, not performing that rounding on these formulas has become common. For that reason, new versions of these formulas were created without the rounding. The new versions of the formulas are not used by default, but users may switch to using them if desired.

* Remove MSN and Quotes Plus from the import options. MSN and Quotes Plus are no longer available as pricing services, and have therefore been removed from the price import options.

* Refresh new Data Folders to use updated price and symbol lists. When creating a new Data Folder, the latest price and symbol lists and other settings will be refreshed to generate an entirely new installation.

To install the program update, users can use the Help > Check for Updates menu from within StrataSearch. If any problems are encountered using this method, users may alternately download and run a manual upgrade from:
