Three weeks after releasing the Beta Build 865, which introduced many new features to MetaQuotes demo accounts, Build 880 goes public with the same changes for all demo and real traders:

  • A fully functional web version of the terminal can now be accessed on MetaQuotes website. The web terminal can also be launched from the desktop platform by right-clicking on the account and selecting "Login to Web Trader."
  • It is now possible to pay for virtual hosting and signals service directly without depositing first into your MQL5 community account.
  • Added one-time-password security option, which makes trading server to require a one-time password entry from you each time you login. The password is generated by the special iOS or Android app. Your broker should enable this feature on its trading server for you to use it.
  • Video tutorials added to terminal to teach you how to use signals, market and virtual hosting services.
  • Expanded symbol specification data displayed for trading instruments - minimal volume, maximal volume, volume step, freeze level, margin percentage, margin currency, trading permission, execution type, 3-days swap weekday, first trade date, and last trade date.
  • When selecting an EA to test in Strategy Tester, the robots are now displayed in a user-friendly sorted tree rather than the old select list.
  • Account history now shows the order's source when you move the mouse pointer over the order. It can be useful if you are following Signals.
  • When pointing the mouse on some stack of graphical objects on the chart, the tooltip will now show data of the latest object added from the stack. Before the change, it would show the data of the topmost object in alphabetical order.
  • Terminal now logs the hardware and OS info at the start.
  • Fixed a bug when the terminal would erroneously delete the latest added graphical object instead of the selected ones.
  • Channel graphical objects are now filled correctly.
  • Terminal now correctly checks the Bollinger bands indicators' input parameters.
  • Fixed terminal freezes, which could occur during prolonged news watching.
  • Strategy tester now uses the specified spread correctly. Before the change, it sometimes used the current spread in stead of the specified one.
  • ArrayCopy() function was optimized to achieve 20% performance increase.
  • Fixed crash that could occur upon graphical object deletion from MQL4 programs.
  • Fixed StringToTime() function to use the date based on local timezone when calling the function with time only.
  • Added operators * and & in MQL4 to access variables by reference and to get references to variables.
  • Fixed ArrayResize() function behavior.
  • FTP settings are now migrated properly when moving a trading account to virtual hosting.
  • Redesigned and simplified the virtual hosting migration wizard.
  • MetaEditor's user interface is now available in Thai language.
  • Fixed some other bugs and errors.

Build 880 should be available via auto-update service of your broker's MetaTrader server. A full list of changes is available on the MetaQuotes forum.
