New features in OpenMx v2.2


New Features Since 2.0.1

OpenMx has a number of new features available in version 2.2.x.

Perhaps most significantly, we have a new optimizer: SLSQP - An open source BFGS optimizer from the NLOPT collection. Our experience is that SLSQP performs similarly to NPSOL on unconstrained problems and outperforms it on some constrained problems. SLSQP is our new default optimizer.

Concerning the Currently Available Versions of OpenMx

We, the OpenMx Development Team, have heard from several of our users who have expressed confusion about which OpenMx version is the current stable release. As of 8 Jun 2014, it is version 2.2.4. We are using this announcement to resolve the confusion, explain the current situation, provide guidance for our users, and -- perhaps most importantly -- to apologize for any confusion or inconvenience we may have caused.

Version 2.0.1 now available

Version 2.0.1 of OpenMx has been released. As usual, it can be downloaded by entering source('http://openmx.psyc.virginia.edu/getOpenMx.R') into the R prompt. This patch provides several bug-fixes and small improvements:

  • Improved functionality of mxRefModels().
  • Confidence intervals can again be run with multithreading.
  • omxGetParameters() will now omit duplicated parameters, even when there are no submodels.
