We are delighted to announce the release of Flux
v0.10. This is a huge release including the work of many contributors; the major development is that Flux now uses Zygote as its default backend for gradients, removing many warts from Flux’s interface and making a much larger class of Julia programs differentiable by default. See the news file for more information on other changes.
To try it out, get Julia 1.3 and
]add Flux (or
]up Flux if you have a previous version installed already) from a REPL. Since this is such a big change, some breakage and regressions are inevitable; some users may want to
]add Flux@0.9 to keep to the stable current release. We’d love to have feedback on the experience through the usual channels.
We would like to thank everyone involved in helping with getting this far, through testing, issues and patches. Flux’s users have been doing some really cool things with differentiable programming already, and we’d love to hear what folks are up to. Enjoy!
– Dhairya, Mike, and the Flux community
