MOSEK is a software package for solving large scale sparse optimization problems. To be precise MOSEK is capable of solving linear, convex quadratic and conic quadratic optimization problems possibly having some integer constrained variables. In addition MOSEK can solve continuous semidefinite optimization problems.

In this presentation we will review what is new and improved in the recently released version 8. We will also present computational results that documents upgrading to MOSEK version 8 provides a genuine enhancement of the numerical stability and performance.

The results also documents that MOSEK is one of the best if not the best semidefinite optimizer.
