  • PyRFA 8.0.1.0 Release

    In 8.0.1.0, PyRFA brings a new capability for market price subscription where it can invoke server-side field filtering upon subscription. The market data updates will contain only fields of interest. This is called "View." With this new feature, PyRFA aims to reduce bandwidth used in very volatile market data updates. Also, we have qualified our builds with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

    What's new:

    • Supports FID filtering subscription with View
    • Updates RDMDictionary and enumtype.def
    • Compiled with RFA 8.0.1.L1
    • Qualified with RHEL7

  • PyRFA 8.0.0 Dropping Support for RHEL5 and 32-bit Systems

    Recent release of PyRFA 8.0.0 (and forward) has dropped support for 32-bit and RHEL5. It supports only 64-bit systems on both Windows and Linux. The reason to drop the support on 32-bit depends on Thomson Reuters RFA C++ libraries that we use to build PyRFA. And since Thomson Reuters has decided not to include the libraries, PyRFA is affected this way.

    Feature-wise, we will keep maintaining version 7.6.1 as it is the last version with 32-bit and RHEL5 support. All future bug fixes and enhancement made to 8.0.0 will also be ported back to 7.6.1.

    For this case, 7.6.1.3 releases also change the data output format into a pure dictionary just like in 8.0.0.

    Thanks for using PyRFA!
