v6.18.5.0 avoids new minimum lay liability issue

New version 6.18.5.0 has now been released. Includes:

  • Avoids the problems caused by Betfair introducing a minimum lay liability without warning on Friday. It had caused problems sending very small lay bets, for example greening up when a small lay bet is required.
  • Updated minimum required version of Microsoft .NET Framework to 4.6.2, which does mean that Windows Vista is no longer compatible with Cymatic.
  • Shortened the text that gets put into the Subject of email messages when the software is automatically sending notifications of errors by email.
  • Updated the text of the error message that appears if a user tries to run the software on Windows XP (which is not compatible with Cymatic).
  • The software is currently unable to show live videos from the streaming provider 'Racing TV' (formerly 'Racing UK'). Some work has been done to resolve this in the near future, but we are awaiting a compatible component to be released by Microsoft.
  • Corrected the error message that appears if the software is unable to connect to Betfair's streaming service due to internet connection issues or other unknown problems.
  • Added a button to delete all saved window properties (positions etc). This is useful if the user gets into a muddle with too many windows, or just wants to revert to the factory default window positioning (i.e. letting the operating system decide where to put windows that are being opened in the software).
  • The pin value (whether a window is 'Top-Most') is now saved when the window position is being saved.
  • Made adjustments to how very small bets are created, to try to avoid the INVALID_PROFIT_RATIO error appearing in most scenarios. This message appears when a bet has a potential unfair rounding advantage.
  • Added support for a some other Betfair error codes that relate to new orders.
  • Fixed a bug in the window used to modify bets. On a few occasions, it could show the message "You cannot edit both size and price", even when only one was being edited.
  • Other internal improvements, for example in number conversion functions and added some code to prepare for hopefully using a newer browser in the future instead of Internet Explorer, for logging in and live video streaming.

As usual the software will automatically update itself next time you open it.

Many thanks for your hard work Gavin. Betfair really treat vendors and customers with utter contempt. It beggars belief that they didn't realise people need to be informed of such a change!
