MOSEK version 7 and Rmosek

Currently, the version of the Rmosek interface on CRAN does not support MOSEK version 7. This issue may never be fixed because it seems CRAN does not like commercial software anymore and therefore  MOSEK  may be removed from CRAN.

Therefore, an updated version of Rmosek inteface is available for download here.

MOSEK version (RC)

The final release candidate for MOSEK version 7 is now available from the MOSEK website. The most important fix is that this version works with the latest MATLAB versions without crashing on 64 bit Linux. However, many minor bug fixes have also been included.

We expect the final version of MOSEK version 7 to be released before 14th of May.
