This is the release note of v1.3.0.


Experimental CMA-ES

A new built-in CMA−ES sampler is available. It is still an experimental feature, but we recommend trying it because it is much faster than the existing CMA-ES sampler from the integration submodule. See #920 for details.

Experimental Hyperparameter Importance

Hyperparameter importances can be evaluated using optuna.importance.get_param_importances. This is an experimental feature that currently requires fanova. See #946 for details.

Breaking Changes

Changes to the Per-Trial Log Format

The per-trial log now shows the parameter configuration for the last trial instead of the so far best trial. See #965 for details.
