I just wanted to follow up Andreas' announcement about the new release of 
IPOPT with a short note regarding the MATLAB interface.

whatever you don't need, don't worry about. For instance, if you don't 
have any bounds on the variables, don't specify them. (Before, you had to 
specify the upper and lower bounds to be positive and negative infinity, 

Over the next few days I will be upating the documentation on the IPOPT 
Wiki (and the readme.html) to reflect these changes. As usual, please let 
me know if you encounter any problems with the new version of the
