For a detailed list of the closed issues and pull requests from this release, see the tag notes.

Breaking changes in MOI

  • SingleVariable has been removed; use VariableIndex instead
  • SingleVariableConstraintNameError has been renamed to VariableIndexConstraintNameError
  • SettingSingleVariableFunctionNotAllowed has been renamed to SettingVariableIndexFunctionNotAllowed
  • VariableIndex constraints should not support ConstraintName
  • VariableIndex constraints should not support ConstraintBasisStatus; implement VariableBasisStatus instead
  • ListOfConstraints has been renamed to ListOfConstraintTypesPresent
  • ListOfConstraintTypesPresent should now return Tuple{Type,Type} instead of Tuple{DataType,DataType}
  • SolveTime has been renamed to SolveTimeSec
  • IndicatorSet has been renamed to Indicator
  • RawParameter has been renamed to RawOptimizerAttribute and now takes String instead of Any as the only argument
  • The .N field in result attributes has been renamed to .result_index
  • The .variable_index field in ScalarAffineTerm has been renamed to .variable
  • The .variable_index_1 field in ScalarQuadraticTerm has been renamed to .variable_1
  • The .variable_index_2 field in ScalarQuadraticTerm has been renamed to .variable_2
  • The order of affine_terms and quadratic_terms in ScalarQuadraticFunction and VectorQuadraticFunction have been reversed. Both functions now accept quadratic, affine, and constant terms in that order.
  • The index_value function has been removed. Use .value instead.
  • isapprox has been removed for SOS1 and SOS2.
  • The dimension argument to Complements(dimension::Int) should now be the length of the corresponding function, instead of half the length. An ArgumentError is thrown if dimension is not even.
  • copy_to no longer takes keyword arguments:
    • copy_names: now copy names if they are supported by the destination solver
    • filter_constraints: use Utilities.ModelFilter instead
    • warn_attributes: never warn about optimizer attributes

Breaking changes in Bridges

  • Constraint.RSOCBridge has been renamed to Constraint.RSOCtoSOCBridge
  • Constraint.SOCRBridge has been renamed to Constraint.SOCtoRSOCBridge
  • Bridges now return vectors that can be modified by the user. Previously, some bridges returned views instead of copies.
  • Bridges.IndexInVector has been unified into a single type. Previously, there was a different type for each submodule within Bridges
  • The signature of indicator bridges has been fixed. Use MOI.Bridges.Constraint.IndicatortoSOS1{Float64}(model).

Breaking changes in FileFormats

  • FileFormats.MOF.Model no longer accepts validate argument. Use the JSONSchema package to validate the MOF file. See the documentation for more information.

Breaking changes in Utilities

  • The datastructure of Utilities.Model (and models created with Utilities.@model) has been significantly refactored in a breaking way. This includes the way that objecive functions and variable-related information is stored.
  • Utilities.supports_default_copy has been renamed to supports_incremental_interface
  • Utilities.automatic_copy_to has been renamed to Utilities.default_copy_to
  • The allocate-load API has been removed

  • The field names of Utilities.IndexMap have been renamed to var_map and con_map. Accessing these fields directly is considered a private detail that may change. Use the public getindex and setindex! API instead.
  • The size argument to Utilities.CleverDicts.CleverDict(::Integer) has been removed.
  • The size argument to Utilities.IndexMap(::Integer) has been removed.
  • Utilities.DoubleDicts have been significantly refactored. Consult the source code for details.
  • Utilities.test_models_equal has been moved to MOI.Test

Breaking changes in Test

  • MOI.Test has been renamed to MOI.DeprecatedTest
  • An entirely new MOI.Test submodule has been written. See the documentation for details. The new MOI.Test submodule may find many bugs in the implementations of existing solvers that were previously untested.

    for file in files
        if !endswith(file, ".jl")
        path = joinpath(root, file)
        s = read(path, String)
        for pair in [
            ".variable_index" => ".variable",
            "RawParameter" => "RawOptimizerAttribute",
            "ListOfConstraints" => "ListOfConstraintTypesPresent",
            "TestConfig" => "Config",
            "attr.N" => "attr.result_index",
            "SolveTime" => "SolveTimeSec",
            "DataType" => "Type",
            "Utilities.supports_default_copy_to" =>
            "SingleVariableConstraintNameError" =>
            "SettingSingleVariableFunctionNotAllowed" =>

  • Add perspective dimension to log-det cone (#593).

v0.6.4 (November 27, 2018)

  • Add OptimizeNotCalled termination status (#577) and improve documentation of other statuses (#575).
  • Add a solver naming guideline (#578).
  • Make FeasibilitySense the default ObjectiveSense (#579).
  • Fix Utilities.@model and Bridges.@bridge macros for functions and sets defined outside MOI (#582).
  • Document solver-specific attributes (#580) and implement them in Utilities.CachingOptimizer (#565).

v0.6.3 (November 16, 2018)

  • Variables and constraints are now allowed to have duplicate names. An error is thrown only on lookup. This change breaks some existing tests. (#549)
  • Attributes may now be partially set (some values could be nothing). (#563)
  • Performance improvements in Utilities.Model (#549, #567, #568)
  • Fix bug in QuadtoSOC (#558).
  • New supports_default_copy_to method that optimizers should implement to control caching behavior.
  • Documentation improvements.

v0.6.2 (October 26, 2018)

  • Improve hygiene of @model macro (#544).
  • Fix bug in copy tests (#543).
  • Fix bug in UniversalFallback attribute getter (#540).
  • Allow all correct solutions for solve_blank_obj unit test (#537).
  • Add errors for Allocate-Load and bad constraints (#534).
  • [performance] Add specialized implementation of hash for VariableIndex (#533).
  • [performance] Construct the name to object dictionaries lazily in model (#535).
  • Add the QuadtoSOC bridge which transforms ScalarQuadraticFunction constraints into RotatedSecondOrderCone (#483).

v0.6.1 (September 22, 2018)

  • Enable PositiveSemidefiniteConeSquare set and quadratic functions in MOIB.fullbridgeoptimizer (#524).
  • Add warning in the bridge between PositiveSemidefiniteConeSquare and PositiveSemidefiniteConeTriangle when the matrix is almost symmetric (#522).
  • Modify MOIT.copytest to not add multiples constraints on the same variable (#521).
  • Add missing keyword argument in one of MOIU.add_scalar_constraint methods (#520).

v0.6.0 (August 30, 2018)

  • The MOIU.@model and MOIB.@bridge macros now support functions and sets defined in external modules. As a consequence, function and set names in the macro arguments need to be prefixed by module name.
  • Rename functions according to the JuMP style guide:
    • copy! with keyword arguments copynames and warnattributes -> copy_to with keyword arguments copy_names and warn_attributes;
    • set! -> set;
    • addvariable[s]! -> add_variable[s];
    • supportsconstraint -> supports_constraint;
    • addconstraint[s]! -> add_constraint[s];
    • isvalid -> is_valid;
    • isempty -> is_empty;
    • Base.delete! -> delete;
    • modify! -> modify;
    • transform! -> transform;
    • initialize! -> initialize;
    • write -> write_to_file; and
    • read! -> read_from_file.
  • Remove free! (use Base.finalize instead).
  • Add the SquarePSD bridge which transforms PositiveSemidefiniteConeTriangle constraints into PositiveSemidefiniteConeTriangle.
  • Add result fallback for ConstraintDual of variable-wise constraint, ConstraintPrimal and ObjectiveValue.
  • Add tests for ObjectiveBound.
  • Add test for empty rows in vector linear constraint.
  • Rework errors: CannotError has been renamed NotAllowedError and the distinction between UnsupportedError and NotAllowedError is now about whether the element is not supported (i.e. it cannot be copied a model containing this element) or the operation is not allowed (either because it is not implemented, because it cannot be performemd in the current state of the model, because it cannot be performed for a specific index, ...)
  • canget is removed. NoSolution is added as a result status to indicate that the solver does not have either a primal or dual solution available (See #479).

v0.5.0 (August 5, 2018)

  • Fix names with CachingOptimizer.
  • Cleanup thanks to @mohamed82008.
  • Added a universal fallback for constraints.
  • Fast utilities for function canonicalization thanks to @rdeits.
  • Renamed dimension field to side_dimension in the context of matrix-like sets.
  • New and improved tests for cases like duplicate terms and ObjectiveBound.
  • Removed cantransform, canaddconstraint, canaddvariable, canset, canmodify, and candelete functions from the API. They are replaced by a new set of errors that are thrown: Subtypes of UnsupportedError indicate unsupported operations, while subtypes of CannotError indicate operations that cannot be performed in the current state.
  • The API for copy! is updated to remove the CopyResult type.
  • Updates for the new JuMP style guide.

v0.4.1 (June 28, 2018)

  • Fixes vector function modification on 32 bits.
  • Fixes Bellman-Ford algorithm for bridges.
  • Added an NLP test with FeasibilitySense.
  • Update modification documentation.

v0.4.0 (June 23, 2018)

  • Added a type parameter to CachingOptimizer for the optimizer field.
  • New API for problem modification (#388)
  • Tests pass without deprecation warnings on Julia 0.7.
  • Small fixes and documentation updates.

v0.3.0 (May 25, 2018)

  • Functions have been redefined to use arrays-of-structs instead of structs-of-arrays.
  • Improvements to MockOptimizer.
  • Significant changes to Bridges.
  • New and improved unit tests.
  • Fixes for Julia 0.7.
