Release Notes: This code originated as part of the relax project within the 'minimise/' directory. Minfx is complete, very stable, well tested, and has been spun off as its own project for the benefit of other scientific, analytical, or numerical projects.
Release Notes: This is a minor feature release with improved documentation and support for sparseness in the grid search algorithm.
Release Notes: This release added Python 3 support and the logarithmic barrier augmented function constraint algorithm. All of the package, module, class, function, and method docstrings have been updated to Epydoc format, improving the online documentation. A few bugs have been eliminated, and the printouts have been regularised.
Release Notes: This release introduces a preliminary simulated annealing package based on scipy, and heavily modifies and improves the grid search algorithm.
Release Notes: Support for Python 2.6 has been added and a rare bug in the backtracking step selection subalgorithm has been removed.
Release Notes: This release involves the inevitable switch from Numeric python to numpy, a few improvements in how missing gradients and models with no parameters are handled, and a switch from GPLv2 to GPLv3.
