Datafeed and API Changes:
  • Security update to disable modified IQConnect processes from connecting to the servers.
  • Fixed bug allowing the S,CONNECT to still function when the feed should be shut down due to multiple machine login scenario. This was resulting in unexpected logoffs when users workload included software that supported this command in the API.
  • Added timeout on authentication that automatically closes the connection to the server 5s after authentication completes. On some machines, this trigger is getting lost (suspect some conflicting software) resulting in authentication hanging indefinitely.
  • Added handling and log entry for crash caused by port 5905 being in use during launch. This port is used internally by zeromq and if this port is not available, IQFeed will not run correctly.
  • IQConnect – Added Log message and notification balloon when IQFeed detects a port conflict on the machine.
  • IQConnect – Fixed bug allowing all ports to appropriately set the default client name as the connecting process. This was previously partially implemented and not working on some ports.
  • IQConnect – Fixed bug allowing invalid time values to be populated into Open┬áSession Time and Close Session Time fields in the fundamental message.
