Re: [CANCELLED][VOTE] Release Apache MXNet (incubating) version 1.4.0.rc2

2019-02-11 Thread sandeep krishnamurthy
I do believe in the benefit of MXNet community, MXNet 1.4  is a important
release with many useful features for our users:

1. Java Inference API, JVM memory management, Julia APIs
2. Multiple important directional experimental features - Subgraph API,
control flow operators, Topology aware all-reduce approach in distributed
training
3. Enhancing so many user touching functionalities - ONNX operator
coverage, new operators like trigonometric operators, Debugging operators
4. 75+ bug fixes
5. Documentation, tutorials, examples updates and issue fixes

*RAT check failures is important and we will fix it up soon in the
following release*. Holding off the release will further delay so many
useful features for users through a stable release. In my opinion, it would
be beneficial for MXNet community to make this release happen.

Best,
Sandeep

Hi All,

Can we move the VOTE forward since the RAT license should not be a problem that 
block the release. We can always add that one in our future releases (e.g 1.4.1 
or 1.5.0).

As you may aware, 1.4.0 release started very early this year and delayed a 
couple of times until now. From the Apache Release process: 
http://www.apache.org/legal/release-policy.html, it should be fine for us to 
move forward if majority provide +1 than -1. 

Again, move forward does not mean we should not fix it or ignore problems that 
exist in the code. We will address and fix them in the next release.

Thanks,
Qing
