0.5.2 (2017-12-15)

Mostly a maintenance release. Much cleaning happened and a conda package is now available in conda-forge. Moreover, the package can now be tried online thanks to binder.

0.5.1 (2017-07-04)

Development status updated from Alpha to Beta.

New features:

  • Acceleration module, decoupling acceleration strategies from the solvers

    • Backtracking scheme

    • FISTA acceleration

    • FISTA with backtracking

    • Regularized non-linear acceleration (RNA)

  • Solvers: gradient descent algorithm

Bug fix:

  • Decrease dimensionality of variables in Douglas Rachford tutorial to reduce test time and timeout on Travis CI.


  • Continuous integration: dropped 3.3 (matplotlib dropped it), added 3.6

  • We don’t build PDF documentation anymore. Less burden, HTML can be downloaded from readthedocs.

0.4.0 (2016-08-01)

New feature:

  • Monotone+Lipschitz forward-backward-forward primal-dual algorithm (MLFBF)

Bug fix:

  • Plots generated when building documentation (not stored in the repository)


  • Continuous integration: dropped 2.6 and 3.2, added 3.5

  • Travis-ci: check style and build doc

  • Removed tox config (too cumbersome to use on dev box)

  • Monitor code coverage and report to coveralls.io

0.3.0 (2015-05-29)

New features:

  • Generalized forward-backward splitting algorithm

  • Projection-based primal-dual algorithm

  • TV-norm function (eval, prox)

  • Nuclear-norm function (eval, prox)

  • L2-norm proximal operator supports non-tight frames

  • Two new tutorials using the TV-norm with Forward-Backward and Douglas-Rachford for image reconstruction and denoising

  • New stopping criterion XTOL allows to stop when the variable is stable

Bug fix:

  • Much more memory efficient. Note that the array which contains the initial solution is now modified in place.

0.2.1 (2014-08-20)

Bug fix version. Still experimental.

Bug fixes:

  • Avoid complex casting to real

  • Do not stop iterating if the objective function stays at zero

0.2.0 (2014-08-04)

Second usable version, available on GitHub and released on PyPI. Still experimental.

New features:

  • Projection on the L2-ball for tight and non tight frames

  • Compressed sensing tutorial using L2-ball, L2-norm and Douglas-Rachford

  • Automatic solver selection


  • Unit tests for all functions and solvers

  • Continuous integration testing on Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.2, 3.3 and 3.4

0.1.0 (2014-06-08)

First usable version, available on GitHub and released on PyPI. Still experimental.
