QuantRocket 1.6.1 is now available. This is a patch release that addresses a problem collecting listings from IB. All users located outside of North America should update. This is an optional update for North American users as they are not affected by this issue. See how to update.
- automatically detect IB website base url when collecting exchanges and listings from IB website. IB now redirects non-North American customers from www.interactivebrokers.com/* to the home page of the appropriate subsidiary website (e.g. www.interactivebrokers.co.uk). This caused QuantRocket not to be able to find the exchange and product listings on the IB website for non-North American customers. QuantRocket will now detect the redirect and issue all website queries to the appropriate subsidiary website. This replaces the
IB_WEBenv var introduced in version 1.6.0, which provided a manual workaround.
