Hello All,

We merged an update to LEAN to map symbol objects to the underlying row of a Pandas DataFrame. This should allow you to use the symbol object instead of hacks like "str(symbol.ID)". The underlying DataFrame is still indexed by the raw symbol hash which is guaranteed to be truly unique. 

We tried to do this last week but had to roll back the implementation as we had too many bugs. This new merge represents a lot of effort by the LEAN team and we have complete coverage of the Pandas Unit Tests so we're pretty sure its backward compatible and also supports symbols on all indexes even when you chain calls together.

If you have any issues please let us know. Hopefully, it just makes your life easier =)
