Beta Version 4.0.913 Released

For a complete list of enhancements in Version 4.0, please see the following link:

An upgrade to Version 4.0.913 is now available, containing a number of important fixes to the latest release. The following primary changes were made:

* Correct fault e-mailing from OneClick Dynamic Strategies. When e-mail distribution of results was turned on for Dynamic Strategies, an error had been causing StrataSearch to shut down. This has been corrected.

* Allow Metastock Import to perform a retry accessing the drive. In some cases, users have referenced network drives for their imports. Since the network connection may timeout on some operating systems, this retry is intended to allow the import to reconnect and continue normally.

* Allow End Date to be extended for Dynamic Strategies. Most setups in the OneClick Setups cannot be changed without changing the nature of the results. However, extending the End Date for Dynamic Strategies does not create this problem, and can be helpful to do in some cases. The OneClick Setups have therefore been changed to allow the extension of the End Date for Dynamic Strategies.

* Correct periodic error when interrupting searches. In some situations, interrupting a OneClick Search in the Processor could create a program fault. This scenario has been corrected.

* Use a base of 1 when creating Signal Setups from Combo Results. When creating a Signal Setup by right-clicking on a result in the Combination Results Listing, StrataSearch must truncate some names because the Strategies can be 100 characters while the Signal Setups can be only 50. StrataSearch therefore renames these strategies with the use of numbers (#1, #2, #3, etc). However, with long names, StrataSearch had been beginning with 0 rather than 1. This was making it difficult to reference the strategies themselves, as the strategies within the result begin with 1. The creation of a Signal Setup has therefore been updated to begin with 1 to solve this confusion.

* Expand size of Signal Setups window. To allow for the larger signal and sector names that are often used, the size of the Signal Setups window has been expanded.

* Correct number of Possible Combinations for 'Always' rules. On the Dynamic Strategies tab of the OneClick Setups, the Possible Combinations calculation was not properly including trading rules set for 'Always'. This has now been corrected.

* Correct Screener to properly select 'All Indexes'. The Screener was not properly recognizing an 'All Indexes' selection as the sector. This has now been corrected.

* Correct fault in Charts when using some drawing tools.

To install the program update, beta users can use the Help > Check for Updates menu from within StrataSearch Version 4.0. If any problems are encountered using this method, users may alternately download and run a manual upgrade from:
