I'm excited to announce that a MATLAB interface to IPOPT is now available 
in the new, stable release of IPOPT. The state-of-the-art in contrained, 
nonlinear optimization is now available to MATLAB users for free!

Detailed installation instructions plus a tutorial are all found on the 
new webpage (https://projects.coin-or.org/Ipopt/wiki/MatlabInterface).

If you are a MATLAB user, I highly encourage you to try it out. It has 
been especially designed so that experienced MATLAB users will find it 
easy to use. Installing the MATLAB interface library is a little tricky, 
so if you have any questions or problems to report, please send an email 
to the IPOPT mailing list.

The MATLAB interface to IPOPT was developed in C++ using the MATLAB External 
Interface (MEX). Of note, it supports sparse matrices for the Hessian and 
Jacobian matrices.

Thanks to Andreas Waechter for all his help!
