Spotware Systems upgrades cTrader Desktop to version 4.2
Spotware Systems, a technology provider for the electronic trading industry, has launched an updated version of its cTrader Desktop, which adds new functionality to join a roster of advanced trading capabilities.
cTrader Desktop 4.2 ameliorates the traders’ experience through one of the biggest selections of technical improvements within several years, according to a corporate statement.
Largely focused on the developers in the cTrader ecosystem, the update ensures swiftness in general performance after the terminal migrated to the latest. NET6 version. But while the updates spice up the desktop version with some of the most sought-after additions, cTrader maintains the old NET4 framework for backward compatibility with all existing cBots and indicators.
In this version of cTrader Desktop 4.2, the company has brought further improvements to the performance optimization which builds on the recently overhauled user interface that was applied in the beta version. Among other functions, cTrader has altered the way an algo file is built by removing any dependency from the cTrader application for the build process.
Significant changes have been made to the structure of the application and its interaction with .NET build tools, which gives users the option to use any IDE to work on their algos. Additionally, the upgraded version references other libraries from NuGet to integrate their algo with .NET products, and to compile cBots and indicators using the ‘dotnet build’ command and even write code and compile it on Linux or Mac.
“The cTrader Desktop 4.2 is filled with major improvements for developers within the cTrader community. It’s one of the most developer-focused updates that cTrader Desktop has seen in many years, and it once again comes to prove that we at cTrader focus on all our community members’ needs,” says Panagiotis Charalampous, the Head of Community Management at Spotware.
“Aside from the move to the .NET6 version and alteration in the way algo files are now built, which opens up a lot more opportunity for developers, there also is the improved intellisense with C# 10 support, a new installer and updater for cTrader, improvements for backtesting and optimization, debugging support, new compiler settings, improved automate logs and much more,” he added.
These new features securely fall in line with Spotware’s goal of keeping cTrader as one of most trader friendly platforms on the market. The company says that adding such preferences allows their traders to decide exactly how they want the platform to work for them.
Spotware has recently launched an updated web version of its flagship cTrader web platform. The tech provider said “significant changes” have been made to the structure of the application and its interaction with servers.
