We present the new results of the Wuppertal-Budapest Lattice QCD Collaboration on flavor diagonal and non-diagonal quark number susceptibilities with 2+1 staggered quark flavors, in a temperature regime between 125 and 400 MeV. A Symanzik improved gauge and a stout-link improved staggered fermion action is utilized; the light and strange quark masses are set to their physical values. Lattices with N t = 6, 8, 10, 12. 16 are used. We perform a continuum extrapolation of all observables under study. Preliminary results for charm quark susceptibilities are also presented, with the charm quark treated at the partially quenched level.
