Distribution History, Changes and Updates

The latest version of the current distribution is always available at the download page, for older distribution please follow this link. A maintenance release (MR) covers the latest distribution and platforms and includes all changes and fixes for the current distribution. Public Beta systems are early releases of a distribution, which should be used by experienced users for testing only and not in a production environment. A beta system is only available during a short period and does not require maintenance to be up-to-date (for four weeks from the beta release date).

If necessary we also publish incremental updates for certain components and platforms. Please contact support@gams.com if you need an update for other platforms. If your system needs an incremental update, download it, place it into your GAMS system directory, and install the update. For detailed information please visit: How to install an incremental GAMS update.

If the new option relaxfixedinfeas is set to 1, the small infeasibilities are ignored and a full solution including the dual values are reported back to GAMS.
