Version 1.8.7


* Revert framework to .net 3.5 (was accidently "upgraded" to v4 by visual studio 2012). This resolves the feeds not showing up issue for windows 7 systems.
* Fix top-most setting for Windows 8 systems, and generally makes this functionality faster and safer.

New version 1.8.5

What's new?

* Removed Google based real-time quotes. Yahoo only, all quotes have 20 minutes delay.
* Reduce count of simultaneous TCP connection to better support stressful routers and proxies


No more real time quotes from Google

Users might wonder why the ticker stopped displaying ticker prices today. This is the unfortunate result of relying on free sources from the internet, in this case, Google. Google discontinued iGoogle today, which is the source of the real-time quotes. You can check for yourself a sample URL that might have been requested to provide you your results:

I'll release a new version later today without the Google based quotes, which means - no more real time. All data will be 20 minutes delayed.
