Yesterday, a new release of MetaTrader 5 platform was made available by MetaQuotes - Build 2860. It applies numerous improvements and fixes:
  • You can now disable MQL5.com services from the platform if you don't want to use them. You can do this via the Tools->Options->Community menu.
  • Optimized the platform's operation under Wine in both macOS and Linux.
  • Added new type of orders "Market to Limit". If there is no liquidity to fill the market order at a current price, it becomes a limit order with the given price as a limit price. Currently, it can be used only when trading on Borsa Istanbul.
  • Added two new macros to MQL5 language: __COUNTER__ and __RANDOM__. The former is an internal counter that increments by 1 each time it is called. The latter is the random ulong number, which is generated each time it is called.
  • Fixed volatility chart display for options.
  • Fixed adding trading instruments to Market Depth via search console in Market Watch.
  • Expanded functionality of SQL database operations with new functions.
  • Fixed operation of synchronous chart requests to non-existing trading symbols.
  • Optimized and accelerated CopyTicks* functions.
  • Changed code profiling to always run in a non-visual mode.
  • Changed debugging to run in a non-visual mode by default but with an option to switch to a visual mode.
  • Fixed display of function names in code profile in cases when they previously were shown as <unknown>.
  • Fixed some other bugs.
