Dear all,

Today we released a new task view on CRAN which deals with R packages closely related to the wide field of optimization. It can be found on http://cran.R-project.org/web/views/Optimization.html.

The focus of this task view is on *General Purpose Continuous Solvers*, *Mathematical Programming Solvers* and *Specific Applications in Optimization*. Packages are categorized in these three sections.

Although every regression model in statisics solves an optimization problem they are not part of this view. Other task views like Multivariate, SocialSciences or Robust are good starting points if you are interested in these models.

Suggestions and comments about this new task view are very welcome. And if you think that some package is missing from the list, please let me know.
