v0.8 Release Candidate available

Post by tickstory »

Hi all,

Version 0.8 of Tickstory Lite has had some late breaking fixes applied that are currently undergoing testing. In order to ensure that users have a potential work-around for any specific issue, a release candidate is being provided. The following items are implemented/addressed in this version:

New Feature
•[TICKLITE-62] File export: Added 30 minute, 4-hour and 12-hour export time-frames.
•[TICKLITE-64] MT4 Export: Allow filtering of duplicate ticks.

Improvement
•[TICKLITE-59] MT4 Export: Externalised 'Margin Divider' field so it can be custom set (previously was fixed to 1.0).
•[TICKLITE-66] MT4 Export: Automatically defaults the 'MetaTrader Info' symbol to the first symbol selected for export.
•[TICKLITE-67] Application can be installed and run without elevated administrator permissions under Windows 7+.
•[TICKLITE-70] Added toolbar button to "Launch MT4"
•[TICKLITE-71] MT4 Export: Round prices to the number of instrument 'digits' (for those brokers not supporting fractional prices).
•[TICKLITE-72] MT4 Export: Removed "default" server when selecting an MT4 terminal server.
•[TICKLITE-73] Highlight the currently selected MT4 folder when showing folder selection box.
•[TICKLITE-75] MT4 Launcher: Now brings MT4 terminal window to foreground when launched.
•[TICKLITE-77] MT4/File Export: Date format for date selection now uses regional settings (as opposed to preset format).
•[TICKLITE-81] Added Facebook 'Like' button.
•[TICKLITE-82] Log information can now be copied to clipboard.

Fixes
•[TICKLITE-69] MT4 Launcher: Was sometimes incorrectly giving error message on second launch (only affects only Build 432).
•[TICKLITE-76] MT4 Export: Specification of custom export directories was not working.
•[TICKLITE-80] MT4 Export: XAUUSD and XAGUSD should be defined as 3-digits in "Generic 5-Digit Broker" config
•[TICKLITE-84] MT4 Export: Weekly/monthly bars were getting filtered when they occurred on the weekend.
•[TICKLITE-85] MT4 Export: Bar start times should start on the hour for time-frames > 1 minute.

A new minor, but important suggestion: the generated FXT files should be write-protected. My MT4 vanished my nicely generated FXT files numeruous times :)

So please, set the attribute of the FXT files to write-protected!

Thanks.
