Version 3.2.2 Released

Postby Avarin » Thu Jun 28, 2007 12:46 pm

An upgrade to Version 3.2.2 is now available, containing a number of important fixes to the latest release. The following primary changes were made:

* Increased efficiency of Screener with improved memory management. When running the Screener with [All Sectors], StrataSearch was not releasing the memory for each sector index immediately after it was used. By the time the sector analysis was complete, the usage of several hundred megabytes of memory could have been allocated, causing the system to run slow or even lock up. Memory is now freed immediately after it is used, allowing the Screener to run much more efficiently when running [All Sectors].

* Perform filtering prior to running column values in Screener. With this version, the column calculations will now take place in the Screener only if the item has passed the Selection criteria. This can greatly improve the efficiency of the screening process in some cases.

* Corrected Import Sector Filter to bypass all filtered sectors. While the Import Sector Filter mechanism had been working properly in most cases, a few unwanted sectors were still slipping through the cracks due to large sector names or special characters. Processing for these special situations has now been corrected.

* Expanded Sector Import Filtering for Metastock subdirectories. The Import Sector Filter mechanism had previously only worked for high-level Metastock directories. This has now been expanded to allow filtering on all lower-level Metastock subdirectories.

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:
