8.0.0.12 (Beta) Release Notes

Previous page Return to chapter overview Next page

Release Date

July 11, 2016

 

Code Breaking Changes

Compile Errors

The NinjaScript Strategy "AccountSize" concept was removed due to limited functionality.  This change would also impact strategies which were coded to use SetOrderQuantity.ByAccountSize.  Please use your own variables to set quantities by account size. Tip:  NinjaTrader 8 can read real-world account values for live trading purposes through the Account class, e.g., Account.Get(AccountItem.CashValue, Currency.UsDollar) provides a method for returning a double value representing the current cash value of the account.

 

Implementation changes

The concept used to force plot series objects through ForcePlotsMaximumBarsLookBackInfinite was disabled and tagged as obsolete.  You should set any indicator/strategy plots to MaximumBarsLookBack.Infinite during its construction.
It is recommended that any strategies generated with the 'Strategy Builder' tool via Control Center > New > Strategy Builder be removed and recreated after installing B12. If you had invested significant effort in a Strategy Builder generated strategy in B11 which you would like to continue to use, please contact us platformsupport@ninjatrader.com
