"You have an excellent feed. Very few spikes for Spot Forex." - Comment from Public Forum Post
"I just wanted to let you know how fast and easy I found it to integrate IQFeed into our existing Java code using your JNI client. In my experience, such things almost never go so smoothly - great job!" - Comment from Nate
"Version 4.0.0.2 has been working well for me and I appreciate that it is now a much tighter client to work with. I feel I can go to press with my own application and rely on a stable platform" - Comment from David in IA.
"DTN feed was the only feed that consistently matched Bloomberg feed for BID/ASK data verification work these past years......DTN feed is a must for my supply & demand based trading using Cumulative Delta" - Comment from Public Forum Post
"I was on the phone with a friend who uses CQG and right after the Fed announcement, CQG was as much as 30 seconds behind DTN.IQ. Some quotes were off by as much as 15-18 cents. Your feed never missed a beat." - Comment from Roger
"Everything is working great ! Very impressive client. The news refreshes better and is more pertinent than the ******* feed I paid $ 100/month for. I Also like the charts a lot." - Comment from Leon
"Thanks for all of your help. Great customer service deserves to be recognized which one the reasons I've been a customer of DTN for over 10 years!" - Comment from Stuart
"I ran your IQFeed DDE vs. my broker vs. a level II window for some slow-moving options. I would see the level II quote change, then your feed update instantaneously. My broker's DDE, however, would take as much as 30 seconds to update. I am not chasing milliseconds, but half a minute is unacceptable." - Comment from Rob
"Thank you so much - awesome feed, awesome service!" - Comment from Greg via Email
"DTN has never given me problems. It is incredibly stable. In fact I've occasionally lost the data feed from Interactive Brokers, but still been able to trade because I'm getting good data from DTN." - Comment from Leighton

Hello,

We're using client version 5.2.5.0 and it's asking to upgrade to 5.2.6.0. We're also using protocol v5.1. Will new IQFeed Client still work for protocol v5.1? In general how does IQFeed Client and protocol versioning relate to each other (if any) and how should we know if there are breaking changes in the release?

The upgrades should be seamless as long as the same protocol is used, regardless of upgrading. (Only true for versions 4.9 or greater.) We would alert all registered developers long ahead of any breaking changes multiple times before making a release of such a client.

Hi Tim,

makes sense, just wanted to verify as I could not find it in written form in the docs, maybe I overlooked though.

Anyway, this is great and thanks!
