There is a HUGE problem (error, bug, whatever they want to call it, but it most certainly is not an improvement or a "feature") in build 840 :

Build 788 : one opened chart, no indicators = 22MB

Build 840 : one opened chart, no indicators = 164MB

Almost 8 times more - for a blank chart, same symbol, same time frame, same max bars on chart set - 5000 in both cases. Thank you mt

Confirmed.

I created a profile with one chart, 5000 bars, and no indies.

Closed and then opened MetaTrader.

While opening build 840 it used around 40 MB. Once open it THEN ramped up to about 140-144 MB.

It gets weirder: I closed and reopened MetaTrader aqain and it held steady at about 57 MB.

That was logged off. I logged on and it shot up again to 126 then 132 MB

Another ill behaviour. Formerly you could not run two Terminals from a single directory (by default), even if you launched two separate terminal.exe copies. Currently, you can launch one 8xx and one 7xx from a single directory concurrently, with usual interference.

With back test it is sometimes impossible to back test - memory usage skyrockets in some cases

Hey, it works, and when you re-open, it is default profile and not the last used.

Also I noticed, sometimes not all times, when I click the tab to change between several open MT4 that they will close ????

Arrrrghhhhhh

It does that with all the built in indicators (even if you use them from the navigator)

Custom indicators work OK

It is getting worse and worse with each new build
