I did upgrade for exactly that same hope, but have been disappointed. I don't notice any difference on what it can solve and not solve. I think one is supposed to use the supplied worksheets to get the results. 😞
It will do integer, binary and quadratic programming. Very useful for situations were a component of the objective function is used in its entirety or not at all or were the objective function is not quadratic.
The documentation, however, is pretty much based on examples.
