Hi all,

Just wanted to let the list know that Yahoo Finance changed their API
and most download functions will no longer work.  It looks like
getting it working will require creating and tracking a session with
the Yahoo Finance servers.

If you're interested in quantmod::getSymbols.yahoo, you can track
progress on the fix on the GitHub issue I created:
