4.0.0

  • the reverse lookup feature was removed (retrieving currency given a symbol) because there is not a deterministic way to do so (i.e. the same symbol is used by multiple currencies).
  • in previous versions, an unsuccessful lookup would return the '?' character. It now returns undefined so that it is up to you how to handle the failure.
