Release Notes: Historical backpopulation now also adjusts closes, and the rpm.spec file has been updated.
Release Notes: The SQL insert/update logic was corrected for data updates without open/high/low/volume entries such as for mutual fund prices. The host variable may now be set from the rc file. The utility scripts setup_beancounter and update_beancounter were changed to bash scripts, since some smaller shell implementations may fail to execute them.
Release Notes: The database access code has been improved: finish() is always called, statement handles are checked, and DBI initialization has been simplified. More tests for undefined variables have been added, and the currency mapping code has been reorganized.
Release Notes: An additional check was added against empty currency symbol strings. A new command line argument --host was added for the existing host variable. If the host is localhost, DBI now connects via sockets instead of TCP/IP, which should make configuration easier for novices. The advance/retracement displays were reformatted for 79 columns.
Release Notes: The "lspositions" command was added for display of (non-aggregated) positions. The volume column in the stockprices table is now of numeric type. A market cap in trillions, as sometimes seen for British stocks quotes, is now allowed. The DatabaseHistoricalUCBFX function was added for historical FX backpopulation via service from the Sauder School at UBC. The GetFXDatum function was added for a single FX data item. --pacificfx was renamed to --ubcfx to select UBC for FX data. The currency codes for Yahoo!'s FX service were updated. Minor variable renaming and cleanups were done.
Release Notes: A new "--splitby" command has been added to adjust historical data, as well as new tests to ensure data sanity for splits. Market capital displayed has been corrected for smaller capitalization stocks. The example portfolio in setup_beancounter is now US-only, as Yahoo! no longer supplies reliable FX quotes for key currencies.
Release Notes: SQLite support was enhanced: SQLite 3 is now the default, but SQLite 2 database can still be used (or even be created) as two new options have been added to beancounter and setup_beancounter.
Release Notes: Two new commands for portfolio listing and stock deactivation were added, as well as three new command-line options. A new optional FX data backend (at UBC) was added, and several other small changes and improvements were made.
Release Notes: A small error in setup_beancounter was corrected, a missing dependency was added to Makefile.PL, and a contributed script was added to the source tarball.
Release Notes: The documentation for the database connection password was corrected. An additional test routine was added to ascertain database connection status, and is now invoked by 'setup_beancounter'.
