We are running late this month. We normally push out an update by the 21st of each month. This month, we are finishing two projects. First is the changes Microsoft has made to the way software behaves. They made a change to Windows 8 and we are modifying our software to ensure you get a smooth installation. This was based on two new users finding permission issues when they installed a new copy of Roo-Trader. Second, we pushed our multi-language version of Roo-Trader back a month. The reason we pushed it back a month was to ensure Windows 8 compatibility. We should roll out our new version in March. Thank you for trying our software and staying with us over the years! Happy Trading! William and the Roo-Trader team.

We are pushing out our next beta release to our testers. So far, the releases have been coming approximately every two weeks. With this release we are testing the ability to pull price updates from Yahoo and Google. We are coming close to our final release. We will work on our import wizard to help our users transition from version 4.2 of OTrader to the new release of Roo-Trader. Your local radio station may not take requests, but we do. If you want to see additional functions, please contact us. We are working through the list we compiled from our users over the past year. However, some items are a higher priority than others. So, please let us know what you need! Thank you for your support! Sincerely, The Roo-Trader Team!
