What’s New


NeoTicker Multiple Instance Technology

Introduced in version 4.30, NeoTicker has a new feature called Multiple Instancing allowing its user to launch and run multiple NeoTicker instances at the same time. I am going to cover the basic aspect of this useful new feature.

Transition from NeoTicker 4.20 to 4.30 and Beyond

Windows 7 (and Vista) Compatibility is a Completely Different Ballgame

NeoTicker 4.30 is fully compatible with Windows 7 (and Vista) Compatible. That means, you can install NeoTicker onto a Windows 7 computer without enabling Windows XP compatibility and there is no need to enable administrative rights in general.

TickQuest company website move

We will be upgrading our company main site server on Dec 23, 2010 to better serve our customers.

We are sorry for any inconvenience during the move.


Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Support

I’ve been asked quite a number of times if Microsoft’s latest .Net Framework version 4 will be supported by NeoTicker’s IDL indicator/system development environment.

The quick answer is yes – it will be supported.

The longer answer is that it will be supported by next release.

An option will be provided in upcoming NeoTicker 4.30 to allow the user to choose to use .Net 4 specifically to run indicators written in .Net environment (e.g. VB.NET, VC#, etc.)

Indicators written in .Net 3 or .Net 2 environment are compatible and can be deployed to NeoTicker running with .Net 4.


Getting Ready for NeoTicker 4.3 and Beyond

After I last wrote about the upcoming NeoTicker version 4.3, one of our programmers who handle the overall user interface coding had accepted an offer to work for a client of our firm.

We are very happy for him as working for a hedge fund has always been what he wanted to do. The issue was that we were left with no one to complete the work he was responsible for. Adding to that, our top secret project on NeoTicker version 5 has so many UI changes it will be very difficult to keep it as a separate project when a team member is missing.

Software Versioning Model Change

After series of meetings and discussions with our programming team, we have decided to change our software versioning model from major version “jumping”, to a model that better reflect our vision of frequent updates with new features and bug fixes.

What I mean is that the upgrade policy on permanent licenses will change. The main differences are,

1. Someone purchased our product version X.Y will be entitled to free upgrade all the way up to  (X + 1).(Y – 1). For example, someone who purchased NeoTicker 4.3, will be entitled to free upgrade up to version 5.2.

2. Within 1 year of purchase or paid upgrade, the license is entitled to free upgrade on all upgrades released during the time period.

3. Those who purchased permanent licenses of NeoTicker and other products on or after June 1, 2010 will be included in this revised upgrade policy.

Boundaries among Major Releases are Now Blurred

The change in the versioning model enables us to add new features to our products without worrying about classification of features designated for major release and/or minor releases.

I now have the flexibility to merge the planned (and implemented) new features for NeoTicker 5 into our release schedule whenever I see fit.

Overall, it turns out to be a good change for everyone within our company and I am sure many of you are happy to see that new features will be added more quickly.

Back to Normal

Our coding schedule is back on track. Programmers are less stressful and more productive as we streamlined the feature planning and release schedule.

Will keep you all posted on our progress.

MB Order Server Issue with Windows 7 64-bit

We figured out something very odds with Windows 7 64-bit. It seems like someone from Microsoft has made a mistake with their coding in handling OCX controls (like the ones from MB Trading). That causes the instability issue with the latest MB Order Server.

We thought it was MB – our bad, it’s not their fault.

We are now focusing on a bypass to workaround this issue.

Last time we reported the Vista bug with Aero theme, it is not fixed at all. And the corrected code went into Windows 7 when it was released. It makes no sense to hope for MS to take care of issues like this …
