Download CVX 3.0 beta

Version 3.0beta, March 2017, Build 1175

Important note: This is prerelease software. We’ve worked hard to stamp out the big bugs, but of course we need your help to squash more! Here are some important notes:

  • Versions 2.x and 3.0b cannot co-exist. Completely remove 2.x from your MATLAB path before you install 3.0b.
  • You will have to re-run cvx_setup before using 3.0b. And if you decide to revert to version 2.x, you will have to re-run cvx_setup then, too.
  • Your CVX Professional license will still work, but you will need to feed it to cvx_setup again. If you deleted your copy of the license, retrieve a copy here.
  • An on-line copy of the updated documentation can be found here. The most significant changes
    can be found in the DCP ruleset section, due to the introduction of sign-sensitive convexity analysis.
  • If you encounter an issue, don’t hesitate to submit a bug report by visiting our support page or sending an email to Please make sure to indicate that you are using CVX 3.0beta; in fact, please include the entire output of cvx_version with your report.
