v0.9.3 Official Release

@piiswrong piiswrong released this Jan 22, 2017 · 4 commits to master since this release

  • Move symbolic API to NNVM @tqchen
    • Most front-end C API are backward compatible
    • Removed symbolic api in MXNet and relies on NNVM
  • New features:
    • MXNet profiler for profiling operator level executions
    • mxnet.image package for fast image loading and processing
  • Change of JSON format
    • param and attr field are merged to attr
    • New code is backward compatible can load old json format
  • OpProperty registration now is deprecated
    • New operators are encouraged to register their property to NNVM op registry attribute
  • Known features removed limitations to be fixed

    • Bulk segment execution not yet added.
  • Miscellaneous

    • sgd and adam optimizer are now implemented with a single imperative call. They should be as fast and memory efficient as cc optimizers. ccsgd is now deprecated and redirects to sgd.
    • Layout support is added. Use mx.io.DataDesc(..., layout='NHWC') in provide_data to specify data layout. use mx.sym.YourSymbol(..., __layout__='NHWC') to specify output layout. layout option is now available for Convolution layer.
    • element_mask is removed. Please use src*mask.reshape((mask.size, 1, 1, ..., 1)) directly as binary ops now support broadcasting.
    • sum_axis, max_axis, and min_axis are deprecated. Please use mx.nd.max(src, axis=n) instead.
    • symbol attributes are now limited to ctx_group, lr_mult, wd_mult, force_mirroring. All other custom attributes need to be in xxx format (start and end with double underscore) or error will be triggered during attribute parsing.
