In this paper a review of application of Bayesian approach to global and stochastic optimization of continuous multimodal functions is given. Advantages and disadvantages of Bayesian approach (average case analysis), comparing it with more usual minimax approach (worst case analysis) are discussed. New interactive version of software for global optimization is discussed. Practical multidimensional problems of global optimization are considered
