CVX3: bug report in kron

I’d like to report a bug in CVX 3.0 (version downloaded from website mid-Feb. 2017).

The following crashes:

variable X(2,2) symmetric;
variable y(2);
kron(X, eye(2));
kron(y, ones(2, 1));

with the following output:

Error using reshape (line 16)
Size vector must have at least two elements.

Error in find (line 35)

Error in kron (line 31)

Error in bug (line 4)
kron(X, eye(2));
29  error( e2 );

As a workaround, use the following kron implementation, written using an outer product:

function res = workaroundkron(x, y)
    x1 = size(x, 1);
    x2 = size(x, 2);
    y1 = size(y, 1);
    y2 = size(y, 2);
    res = y(:) * x(:)';
    res = reshape(res, [y1 y2 x1 x2]);
    res = permute(res, [1 3 2 4]);
    res = reshape(res, [y1*x1 y2*x2]);

Note: I have done minimal testing of this workaround, use at your own risk.

May I ask why would you use version 3.0?

Any status on the development of CVX 3.0?
I wish to see it goes forward.

I wanted to test more solvers, and have control over the primal/dual form (cvx_dualize).
