[ANN] Yao v0.6: High Performance Differentiable Programming on Quantum Circuits

I’m happy to announce our major release v0.6 of Yao by the new year. This new version starts to support automatic differentiation and symbolic computation. and we have a new website now: http://yaoquantum.org/ and a paper! check our preprint: https://arxiv.org/abs/1912.10877 and blog post: https://julialang.org/blog/2019/12/yao-differentiable-quantum-programming

A new benchmark reviewed by major authors of other packages in other languages is also available. We show Yao achieve state-of-the-art performance even comparing to manual tuned C++ implementation.
