Release 1.5.0

Breaking Changes

  • Prebuilt binaries are now built against CUDA 9 and cuDNN 7.
  • Our Linux binaries are built using ubuntu 16 containers, potentially
    introducing glibc incompatibility issues with ubuntu 14.
  • Starting from 1.6 release, our prebuilt binaries will use AVX instructions.
    This may break TF on older CPUs.

Major Features And Improvements

Bug Fixes and Other Changes

  • auto_correlation added to tf.contrib.distributions.
  • Add DenseFlipout probabilistic layer.
  • Restandardize DenseVariational as simpler template for other probabilistic layers.
  • Make tf.contrib.distributions QuadratureCompound classes support batch.
  • Stream::BlockHostUntilDone now returns Status rather than bool.
  • Customize request timeouts for the GCS filesystem.
