The SIMON Modellierungen optimization .NET assembly is now available in version V2.0, which has many new enhancements.

Amongst others we further optimized our code. So Evaluation of Polynomials is now up to 4x faster than before.

Only one assembly is furthermore needed for doing optimization tasks. This is written in C# and it’s complete object orientation ensures to instantiate and run as many optimizations as needed in parallel. I.e. you can take advantage of the oncoming multi core processors on PCs. For example the one-dimensional Cutting Stock Optimization already handles the number of system processors automatically, i.e. if 4 PC processors are available, 4 threads run in parallel automatically.

The optimization .NET assembly is available for the Microsoft .NET Frameworks 2.0, 3.0, 3.5 and 4.0, i.e. no further installation of a Microsoft .NET frameworks is needed, the main application, which is primarily yours, determines the .NET framework version.

There is no need to differentiate between x64/x86 hardware platforms anymore and no Microsoft VC++ Redistributable Package is needed moreover.
