November 13, 2003 - changing to BSD license

December 9, 2000 - CVS repository Available
If you would like to contribute to the project, or just like to build with
the latest source, you are now able to do so. See CVS developers area for
November 20, 2000 - Xquote 2.2 Now Available
Xquote 2.2 now supports logging of quote updates to a file. File
logging is supported through 3 new file menu items: Log To File, Stop Log,
and Clear log file. Another option menu dialog has been added which
allows selection of the file logging format, either Xinvest format, which
is compatible with Xinvest transactions, or a semicolon separated list.
The former format only logs the date and price of a quote, the latter format
logs every quote variable currently selected for display from the details
dialog. This allows you to tailor the log to the information of most
interest to you.
November 19, 2000 - Xquote and Xinvest built with Open Motif
Open Motif is a release of Motif sources and runtimes available with the
more generous Open Group Public License. Open source operating systems
can generally use, build, and provide Motif for free. Xinvest and
Xquote will continue to work with LessTif as well. To get more information
on Open Motif, check the links section.
April 15, 2000 - Xquote 2.1 Now Available
Xquote 2.1 now has support for larger ticker symbols (up to 15 characters).
It also now supports separately specified display text. The ticker
tape view will either display the ticker symbol, or if defined, an arbitrary
string you specify. This should help with those odd Yahoo symbols like
^IXIC (NASDAQ composite).
Xquote 2.1 will restore your older session files, but will force you
to enter the new display text field the next time you open the ticker symbol
dialog. If you wish to just keep the display as it was, just enter
the ticker symbol into the new display text field. Remember the easiest
way to 'edit' your ticker symbol list is to double click on the ticker
symbol you wish to modify (it's contents will be loaded into the entry
fields), click on
remove, add the desired display text, and click on Add. Repeat
for each ticker symbol.
February 5, 2000 - Xinvest 2.6 Now Available
Xinvest 2.6 contains loads of new features: currency exchange rates, exchange
rate live updates from Xquote, a revamped report generator, a preference
dialog for display formats, etc, and modifiers for Xquote updates, so received
quotes can be placed into the units of your account history.
