About: MSVMpack is a Multiclass Support Vector Machine (MSVM) package. It is dedicated to SVMs which can handle more than two classes without relying on decomposition methods and implements the four MSVM models from the literature: Weston and Watkins MSVM, Crammer and Singer MSVM, Lee, Lin and Wahba MSVM, and the MSVM2 of Guermeur and Monfrini. Changes:

About: FEAST provides implementations of common mutual information based filter feature selection algorithms (mim, mifs, mrmr, cmim, icap, jmi, disr, fcbf, etc), and an implementation of RELIEF. Written for C/C++ & Matlab. Changes:

About: A mutual information library for C and Mex bindings for MATLAB. Aimed at feature selection, and provides simple methods to calculate mutual information, conditional mutual information, entropy, conditional entropy, Renyi entropy/mutual information, and weighted variants of Shannon entropies/mutual informations. Works with discrete distributions, and expects column vectors of features. Changes:Added weighted entropy functions. Fixed a few memory handling bugs.

About: APRILANN toolkit (A Pattern Recognizer In Lua with Artificial Neural Networks). This toolkit incorporates ANN algorithms (as dropout, stacked denoising autoencoders, convolutional neural networks), with other pattern recognition methods as hidden makov models (HMMs) among others. Changes:

About: This is an optimization library based on Social Impact Theory(SITO). The optimizer works in the same way as PSO and GA. Changes:A new variant 'Continuous Opinion Dynamics Optimizer (CODO)' has been implemented in this version. Minor changes in implementation of objective function.

About: minFunc is a Matlab function for unconstrained optimization of differentiable realvalued multivariate functions using linesearch methods. It uses an interface very similar to the Matlab Optimization Toolbox function fminunc, and can be called as a replacement for this function. On many problems, minFunc requires fewer function evaluations to converge than fminunc (or minimize.m). Further it can optimize problems with a much larger number of variables (fminunc is restricted to several thousand variables), and uses a line search that is robust to several common function pathologies. Changes:Initial Announcement on mloss.org.

About: The glmie toolbox contains scalable estimation routines for GLMs (generalised linear models) and SLMs (sparse linear models) as well as an implementation of a scalable convex variational Bayesian inference relaxation. We designed the glmie package to be simple, generic and easily expansible. Most of the code is written in Matlab including some MEX files. The code is fully compatible to both Matlab 7.x and GNU Octave 3.2.x. Probabilistic classification, sparse linear modelling and logistic regression are covered in a common algorithmical framework allowing for both MAP estimation and approximate Bayesian inference. Changes:added factorial mean field inference as a third algorithm complementing expectation propagation and variational Bayes generalised nonGaussian potentials so that affine instead of linear functions of the latent variables can be used
