What’s new in Version 1.1.2

  • Add TensorFlow Functional API support

What’s new in Version 1.1.1

  • Add Auto-Mixed-Precision training support

What’s new in Version 1.1.0

  • Supports TensorFlow 1.15.

  • Supports configuring visible devices via tf.config.set_visible_devices.

  • Added a dedicated CUDA stream for SOK’s Ops.
