Yesterday the first version of GLPK Lab for Windows, a new modeling GUI for GLPK has been released. Maintainers of the package are Luiz Bettoni, Andrew Makhorin, and Heinrich Schuchardt. I have not tried it out yet as I am not a Windows user. So any feedback is welcome. From the release notes:

We are pleased to announce the very first release of GLPK Lab for

GLPK Lab is a set of software tools and libraries based on the GLPK
(GNU Linear Programming Kit) package and intended for solving
large-scale linear programming (LP), mixed integer programming (MIP),
and other related problems.

Currently GLPK Lab includes the following main components:

*  GLPK Lab Editor, which is the SciTE editor adapted to be used along
with GLPK Lab (based on the Gusek project)

*  GLPK API library compiled with Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 and
intended for developing GLPK-based applications in C or C++

Happy Modeling,

  1. Sebastian,

    Have you had a chance to use GLPK Lab at all? It looks like a great tool. I’ve been meaning to write up a review on it.
