MT Alpha Release Notes Alpha

Introduction

Dear Machinisti
Thank you for all the patience over the last weeks. We are very sorry for making You all wait so long.

It was really some bad luck on top of a couple of self-made issues that led to this large delay on releasing our Private Alpha of MachinaTrader.

We do now have a state that is testable, but the system does not yet reflect the full speed capabilities as we are still doing tweaks on the backend.

Wikipedia says this about the ALPHA state of a software build:

“The first version of a computer program intended for testing by others (not the actual developers) is often called the alpha version. Although the term is not precisely defined, an alpha version usually already contains the basic components of the software product – but it is almost essential that later versions extend the range of functions.

In particular, alpha versions usually contain bugs in the extent or quantity that make them unsuitable for productive use.”

However, with the current version of MT you should totally be able to get a first impression and play a bit with the basics.

Some last notes before you start…
– The current test instances reflect our smallest future subscription “bronze”.
– The system will cache data on first requests, in other words, it becomes faster while using it.
– When making larger backtests, please be patient until the execution starts, this is a known bug and will be solved shortly.

If you have any further questions please use our forums or get in touch via email [email protected]

General Notes Release Version 698e4425

MachinaTrader’s Private Alpha is our first release to a larger audience and marks another milestone on our journey to our final release, scheduled for the mid-year.

The Private Alpha depicts an early stage of development, where our core engines and features are available in their initial forms.

For the start of the Private Alpha, Live-Trading is disabled, however all relevant features can be explored via Paper Trading. Live-Trading will be activated once the base platform has passed its internal testing.

The Private Alpha and the social network of MachinaTrader are both intended for a limited invited audience only.
