Fire Opal 7.0.0

March 12, 2024

What's new

  • There has been a minor modification to the inputs of Fire Opal's QAOA Solver. problem_type is an optional parameter now, and only required for graph problem definitions. That means that the parameter order has also changed.
  • Previously, the inputs were in the following order:
    (problem, problem_type, credentials, backend_name=None)
  • Now, the inputs are in this order:
    (problem, credentials, problem_type=None, backend_name=None)

Fire Opal 6.8.0

February 12, 2024

What's new

  • With this update, we've improved the error message in case you accidentally (or maybe purposefully?) submit an empty list of circuits.

Fire Opal 6.7.0

January 26, 2024

What's new

  • Things have changed, but the differences shouldn't be materially noticeable for you...kind of like the subatomic world.
