Quantacula Studio Version 3 News
QStudio Version 3 is here - 64-bit and .NET Core 3.1! This upgrade will run side by side with QSV2, and install in a separate folder,
but uses the same data sources and models. In terms of extensions, you'll need to download the new extensions builds
from the Extensions page to get them going in QSV3. The following extensions have been rolled directly into the core
product so you won't see them on the Extensions page:
This version also fixes a bug in fundamental data that caused it not to load in new installs, and a
bug in the FundamentalRatio indicator code-based constructor.
If you experience any hiccups during this transition phase please post them on our forum so we can
address any migration issues, and enjoy the new 64-bit QSV3!
- Quantacula Studio Version 3 is under development! This will be a quick major upgrade cycle, primarily migrating the code base to .NET Core 3.1 and producing a 64-bit executable. Please visit this Forum Topic to keep posted on details and share ideas or feedback.
