GLPK 3.0.7 -- Release Information

Release date: Apr 22, 2002

GLPK (GNU Linear Programming Kit) is intended for solving large-scale
linear programming (LP), mixed integer linear programming (MIP), and
other related problems. It is a set of routines written in ANSI C and
organized in the form of a callable library.

A new, more efficient implementation of the primal/dual simplex method
was included in the package. Due to some improvements the simplex-based
solver allows solving many LP problems faster and provides more reliable
results. Note that the new implementation is currently incomplete and
available only via the api routine glp_simplex2.

This new implementation of the simplex method is planned to replace a
base LP solver currently used in the branch-and-bound procedure.

All the changes are transparent on API level.

Please note that the current version of GLPK is *tentative*.
