* Hovering over a widget causes tool tip with trade time and date to show up
* Configuration options for reading and saving a symbol list file
* Configuration setting for increasing/decreasin update interval, this is for widget only, dataengine updates every 1 minute
* Configuration setting for settning applet translucency

QuoteSee 0.1.2 [2009-04-07]
* Fixed currency rate change fetching if compiled with Qt 4.5
* Currency rate change is displayed with 4 decimal places instead of 2
* Stock names containing ',' display correctly, but are still limited to 17 characters

QuoteSee 0.1.1 [2009-03-30]
* Fixed crashing when checking currency quotes if QuoteSee compiled with Qt 4.5 (works fine with Qt 4.4.3). Still won't work correctly but won't crash and take the desktop with it.

This is with the Kubuntu Jaunty (beta).

Working fine with the stocks but if i use: usdcad=x (or gbpusd=x). The QuoteSee plasma-widget will crash the plasma desktop.

With the command: "plasmoidviewer plasma_applet_quotesee".

The error is:
"Error FODC0005 in file:///usr/bin/plasmoidviewer, at line 1, column 1: http://query.yahooapis.com/v1/public/yql?q=select * from html where url="http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=usdcad%3dx" and (xpath='//span[@id="yfs_c10_usdcad=x"]/strong')&format=xml is not a valid value of type xs:anyURI.
ASSERT: "queryxml.isValid()" in file ../src/quotesee.cpp, line 199
