Cloud Optimization and Futures Options Deployment – Release Notes v9766-v9972

Merry Christmas and a special thanks to our community contributors kazazes, jmerle, jKard1210, and IlshatGaripov.  

Months of intensive technology and engineering have gone into LEAN v9766-v9972. We’ve implemented cloud optimization; harness this powerful tool to test thousands of combinations for your strategy in record time! Identify hot spots in your charting to avoid costly overfitting, and save time exploring the parameter space. We’ve also deployed a new asset class, futures options. We’ve integrated 12 futures options contracts in interest rates, metals, energy, agriculture and equity indices, boosting your ability to develop more complex strategies and mitigate risk.
