MOSEK 8.1 is out

We are releasing MOSEK 8.1, an improved continuation of version 8.0.

Its main features are:
  • Much faster implementation of the Python Fusion API. Depending on the use case the overhead of Fusion is reduced by a factor of 3-10 on large models.
  • Introduced C++ Fusion API for 64bit Windows, at least for Microsoft Visual Studio 2015+.
  • Performance improvements in the conic optimizer and presolve. Particularly for problems with many dense columns.
  • Improved documentation for the Optimizer, Fusion and API reference. 
All interfaces are identical to that of 8.0, meaning a seamless update.

Platform support changes:
  • Introduced C++ Fusion for 64bit Windows.
  • Dropped support for Python 3.4.
  • Dropped the AMPL shell in 32bit Windows.
