Think twice before upgrading to 6.5.19 if you're actively using Combination Strategies!

There are 2 new bugs in 6.5.19:

1. Combination Strategies are forced to run in Raw Profit mode. Consequently, the Performance tab shows no portfolio-specific metrics (like Capital, Annualized Gain % or Sharpe) and equity visualizers display Net Profit instead of Portfolio Equity.

2. Selecting "Annual" ("Monthly" etc.) on the "By Period" tab crashes Wealth-Lab.

If you upgraded but these bugs are critical to you, then here's how to downgrade to 6.4. First, uninstall 6.5.19, and then click through the cached installation files to find the desired MSI file:

in XP:
C:\Documents and Settings\[user who installed]\Local Settings\ApplicationData\Downloaded Installations

in Vista/Win7/Win8
C:\Users\[user who installed]\AppData\Local\Downloaded Installations\

There's a 6.5 patch release currently in the works with a fix to these bugs. Hopefully it won't take long.

The bugs have been fixed in 6.5.20. Upgrade is strongly recommended to anyone who have installed 6.5.19 before!
