COPT Changelog

20240115

  • Solve result codes.

    • List codes by running (solver) -!

    • [BREAKING] Standardized codes. Major changes:

      • 100-199 (solved?) means solution candidate provided, but can be suboptimal/infeasible

      • 300-349 means unbounded problem but feasible solution returned

      • 400-449 means limit/interrupt but feasible

    • [BREAKING] sol:chk:fail returns code 150 (solved?)

  • Improved translation of SOCP constraints.

    • Options cvt:socp, cvt:socp2qc.

  • Compact solution check warnings

  • Fixed presolve of the power function #226.

20231117

  • Updated to Copt 7.0.3, which includes many performance improvements

  • New keyword lim:soltime to specify a time limit after a solution has been found

  • MP update: fixed graceful exit on Ctrl-C from AMPL in Linux and fixed issue with reading text-format NL files

20231103

  • Improved translation of logical constraints: inlining of nested disjunctions and conjunctions; fewer auxiliary binary variables.

20231017

  • Fixed a bug in NL reader on Windows.

20230919

  • mp_options. Receive mp_options from AMPL (for all MP solvers). They are parsed before (solvername)_options.

  • Solution checking: relative tolerance sol:chk:feastolrel; options sol:chk:round, sol:chk:prec.

20230831

  • Solution checking, options sol:chk:* (experimental).

  • Preprocess And/Or constraints.

20230817

  • Alternative solutions: solve status equal to that of the final solution.

  • Fixed a bug causing repeated names for auxiliary variables and constraints.

  • Option values can be assigned without ‘=’.

  • Fixed a bug where equivalent conditional comparisons were not unified.

20230726

  • Fixed inequalities of integer expressions with non-integer constants, see test_int_non_int.mod.

20230724

  • Option [solver_]auxfiles rc; transfers names of variables and linear constraints into the model; (solver)_options ‘cvt:names=0-3’ controls names.

20230621

  • Fix quadratic objective with repeated subexpressions.

20230616

  • Changes in MP.

20230428

  • Updated to Copt 6.5.2, which includes performance improvements and fixes for issues with MIP problems

20230424

  • Changes in the MP library: added variable names support and removed spurious starting solution

20230330

  • Recognition of second-order conic constraints from algebraic representations and conversion into quadratic constraints; COPT appears to recognize second-order cones from quadratics.

20230207

  • Changes in the MP library

  • Updated to Copt 6.0.4, which includes bugfixes

  • Added support for unbounded/Farkas rays calculation

20221228

  • Changes in MP

20221222

  • Bug fixes in MP

20221211

  • Changes in MP: added the ==> else operator Implemented implication with ‘else’: constr1 ==> constr2 [else constr3]

  • Changes in MP: PLApproxRelTol, PLApproxDomain Parameters to control piecewise-linear approximation. cvt:plapprox:reltol default value changed from 1e-5 to 0.01.

20230207

  • Updated to Copt 6.0.1, which includes: many performance improvements native support for quadratic constraints

20221012

  • Piecewise-linear approximation of quadratics For non-convex quadratics, set the following options: cvt:quadobj=0 and/or cvt:quadcon=0.

20220928

  • Changes in MP: piecewise-linear approximations of nonlinear functions, default value of big-M

20220715

  • Updated to Copt 5.0.1, which includes many performance improvements

  • Added feasibility relaxation (see alg:feasrelax)

  • New parameters: alg:iismethod

20220615

  • New parameter: crossover

  • Minor changes to parmeter names

20220526

  • SOS constraints are now detected also if the .ref suffix is integer

  • Minor changes to parmeter names

20220511

  • Complementarity constraints: also quadratics Complementarity constraints now handle quadratics.

  • Branch develop is used for new code The active development branch is now develop.

  • Convert quadratic range constraints to QuadCon(LE/EQ/GE) COPT does not support quadratic range constraints. Conversion of linear range constraints into one-side rhs constraints has been generalized for any algebraic ones.

20220411

  • First mp-based release, linked with COPT libraries 4.0.5
