A few days ago MetaQuotes published a MQL5 referenced guide in Russian. The English version is not coming out yet. However, if you use a translation service, for example Google Translate, you should understand it without much problems if you are good in MQL4, because the terminology is basically the same. Anyway, if you have problems with the translation, you can always ask for help on the MQL4 forums or here in the comments, i will help you.

Regarding MetaTrader 5, the wait continues:

metatrader 5

Lets hope MetaQuotes will publish the MetaTrader 5 public beta in September when people get back from their holidays. Traders should have time to prepare for the Automated Trading Championship in 2010 (Expert Advisors written in MQL5). Maybe they have problems with the new NFA rules* and are reworking the implementation of them?

*NFA ruling compliance: Recently the NFA issued new regulations prohibiting traders from hedging (having long and short positions open on the same currency pair at the same time).

Where is OrderSend() or any other function that could do that? Or is that function removed to protect users from losing money :)

Outkast, the main trading functions are not published yet. The OrderSend() function is of course present. :)

I'm wondering if the MT5 OO compiler will be able to inline methods?

This is a standard part of C++, and many compilers will automatically inline even when not explicitly defined as such.

Inlining removes the performance overhead that you get with function calls and greatly assists a proper OOP approach and the devleopment of libraries.
