  • Accelerated loading the huge symbol lists (thousands of trading instruments) on program initialization.
  • Optimized platform's memory usage.
  • Depth of Market settings are now saved and restored properly on platform's restart.
  • Added ORDER_EXTERNAL_ID and DEAL_EXTERNAL_ID properties to get the order's or deal's external ID (for exchange-traded instruments).
  • ZeroMemory() function should now work properly with structures and classes.
  • FTP errors codes are now available when working with SendFTP() function.
  • Fixed CopyTicks() operation with COPY_TICKS_TRADE parameter.
  • CryptDecode() function now works properly with ZLib.
  • Added a video tutorial link on how to create a trading robot with MQL5 Wizard when launching the said Wizard.
  • Forward testing with genetic optimization now processes all unique results (was 25% before).
