    Description: This publication comprises the Software Management Plan (SMP) developed in the HPO-Navi project. The project was funded in the Literature and Information System (LIS) track of the DFG with the aim of increasing the maturity level of scientific software under development, developing improved measures for the quality assurance of this software and for long-term availability. The Ubiquity Generator Framework (UG) software developed in the project provides a software infrastructure to make existing sequential implementations HPC-capable. The UG framework is of interest to developers of specialized optimization algorithms and can be used directly to solve specific problem classes in the field of scientific computing. Due to the naturally high software technology hurdles on HPC systems, UG was initially a highly specialized tool and could only be used to a limited extent without the involvement of the main developer. The central challenge of the project was to create a mechanism for the sustainable development and permanent provision and archiving of the research software. The aim was for UG to achieve the status of a "software product" with implementation of the following project content: - Documentation of the software: a description of the API and the simple connection of further basic solvers, installation instructions for various target platforms and a description of the structure and documentation of the source code as a basis for the distributed sustainable development of UG. - Development of missing user functions of UG: increased platform independence for shared memory parallelization and better logging function for the analysis and verification of results. - Development of a sample data management plan for future research projects that want to use UG and document their research results according to DFG standards for good scientific practice. - Quality assurance: by defining code guidelines, uniform concepts and criteria for the qualitative evaluation of new functions and implementing standards for code review and processes for continuous integration. A complementary goal was to improve the provision, accessibility and long-term reusability of the research software. - Use of an open Git server as a distributed development platform, provision of a download server for releases and sustainable storage of the software code and the associated meta-information. - Improved presentation and visibility through publication in publicly accessible repositories. This includes the prototypical extension of the OPUS 4 repository software widely used in Germany as a means of publishing software with a landing page that can be resolved via a DOI, and improved linking and presentation of UG in swMATH. - Digital long-term archiving: experimental inclusion of software code in an OAIS-compliant digital archiving system and evaluation of the approach in the areas of digital archiving and research data management.

    Description: This article describes new features and enhanced algorithms made available in version 5.0 of the SCIP Optimization Suite. In its central component, the constraint integer programming solver SCIP, remarkable performance improvements have been achieved for solving mixed-integer linear and nonlinear programs. On MIPs, SCIP 5.0 is about 41 % faster than SCIP 4.0 and over twice as fast on instances that take at least 100 seconds to solve. For MINLP, SCIP 5.0 is about 17 % faster overall and 23 % faster on instances that take at least 100 seconds to solve. This boost is due to algorithmic advances in several parts of the solver such as cutting plane generation and management, a new adaptive coordination of large neighborhood search heuristics, symmetry handling, and strengthened McCormick relaxations for bilinear terms in MINLPs. Besides discussing the theoretical background and the implementational aspects of these developments, the report describes recent additions for the other software packages connected to SCIP, in particular for the LP solver SoPlex, the Steiner tree solver SCIP-Jack, the MISDP solver SCIP-SDP, and the parallelization framework UG.

    Description: The SCIP Optimization Suite provides a collection of software packages for mathematical optimization centered around the constraint integer programming framework SCIP. This paper discusses enhancements and extensions contained in version 6.0 of the SCIP Optimization Suite. Besides performance improvements of the MIP and MINLP core achieved by new primal heuristics and a new selection criterion for cutting planes, one focus of this release are decomposition algorithms. Both SCIP and the automatic decomposition solver GCG now include advanced functionality for performing Benders’ decomposition in a generic framework. GCG’s detection loop for structured matrices and the coordination of pricing routines for Dantzig-Wolfe decomposition has been significantly revised for greater flexibility. Two SCIP extensions have been added to solve the recursive circle packing problem by a problem-specific column generation scheme and to demonstrate the use of the new Benders’ framework for stochastic capacitated facility location. Last, not least, the report presents updates and additions to the other components and extensions of the SCIP Optimization Suite: the LP solver SoPlex, the modeling language Zimpl, the parallelization framework UG, the Steiner tree solver SCIP-Jack, and the mixed-integer semidefinite programming solver SCIP-SDP.

    Description: The SCIP Optimization Suite provides a collection of software packages for mathematical optimization centered around the constraint integer programming frame- work SCIP. This paper discusses enhancements and extensions contained in version 7.0 of the SCIP Optimization Suite. The new version features the parallel presolving library PaPILO as a new addition to the suite. PaPILO 1.0 simplifies mixed-integer linear op- timization problems and can be used stand-alone or integrated into SCIP via a presolver plugin. SCIP 7.0 provides additional support for decomposition algorithms. Besides im- provements in the Benders’ decomposition solver of SCIP, user-defined decomposition structures can be read, which are used by the automated Benders’ decomposition solver and two primal heuristics. Additionally, SCIP 7.0 comes with a tree size estimation that is used to predict the completion of the overall solving process and potentially trigger restarts. Moreover, substantial performance improvements of the MIP core were achieved by new developments in presolving, primal heuristics, branching rules, conflict analysis, and symmetry handling. Last, not least, the report presents updates to other components and extensions of the SCIP Optimization Suite, in particular, the LP solver SoPlex and the mixed-integer semidefinite programming solver SCIP-SDP.

    Description: The SCIP Optimization Suite provides a collection of software packages for mathematical optimization centered around the constraint integer programming framework SCIP. This paper discusses enhancements and extensions contained in version 8.0 of the SCIP Optimization Suite. Major updates in SCIP include improvements in symmetry handling and decomposition algorithms, new cutting planes, a new plugin type for cut selection, and a complete rework of the way nonlinear constraints are handled. Additionally, SCIP 8.0 now supports interfaces for Julia as well as Matlab. Further, UG now includes a unified framework to parallelize all solvers, a utility to analyze computational experiments has been added to GCG, dual solutions can be postsolved by PaPILO, new heuristics and presolving methods were added to SCIP-SDP, and additional problem classes and major performance improvements are available in SCIP-Jack.
