Hello, when I start optimtool (part of GADS_Toolbox) I get the message: Warning: Optimization app will be removed in a future release. See release notes for details.
why will it be removed? Will it be replaced by another similar GUI? could you please send me the release notes telling that optimtool will be removed? will optimization code like 'ga' and 'gamultiobj' be removed, too?
Regards, Pier

I'm sorry that the note caused you concern. Only the Optimization app ( optimtool) will be removed, because the underlying software that it relies on is maintained minimally and will cease to work at some point. The solvers such as ga and gamultiobj will not be removed. Indeed, we are actively developing our solvers, and expect to continue to do so.
As to whether the app will be replaced, well, I cannot comment on specific future plans. Sorry.

To answer the third question you asked, the Release Notes for Optimization Toolbox in release R2015b first announced that the Optimization app will be removed in a future release.

Update:
In R2020b, Optimization Toolbox and Global Optimization Toolbox now feature the Optimize Live Editor task, which is a graphical interface to solvers from both toolboxes that embeds in live scripts.
It's worth checking out for anyone who uses optimtool.

Was there something specific (an option, the organization of the UI, etc.) about the optimtool that you preferred to the corresponding section of the Optimize Live Editor task? If so, what?
