Request of support CPLEX for MATLAB

Dear Ma'am/Sir,

I'm aware that some time ago, IBM decided not to continue their support for a MATLAB interface. However, with this message I want to speak not only for myself, but also for the community of COBRA Toolbox users. I have had many difficulties in the implementation of several COBRA functionalities because they depend on CPLEX. The same situation is faced by many other users inside and outside the academy.
I would like to ask IMB to reverse their decision if possible, or otherwise, at least release the interface open source.
I thank you in advance for your attention,

Dr. Sandra Correa
