Since the word has already begun to spread, here's a sneak peek at Wealth-Lab Genetic Optimizer:

Wealth-Lab 5 Optimizer using Genetic Algorithm (GA)

Eugene, is this the feature you mentioned some time ago that would speed up optimization times, or is that another completely different feature?

In any case, this is pretty cool.

When can we expect genetic goodness to arrive on our very own Wealth-Labs?

It's ready to go, but we've got some other housekeeping to do first. I'd like to think we'll have it all cleaned up within 2 weeks.

Will we someday get the source code on this extension as well?

No. Just curious: why would we give away our intellectual property?

I thought sometimes you gave us the source for some work you did (like we have on the wiki).I see it under "Open Source Home" on the wiki. But to be honest i don't know much about open source projects and I guess i don't know what will qualify as open code or not.

It's described at the Open Source Home, though I agree that it's confusing to see "Optimizers" in the "Open Source Home" menu list on the Wiki. The interface for creating your own optimizers is "open", but I don't think that documentation has been published yet.

Edit: I thought wrong - it is available! :)
