Areas of improvement

  • RNN improvements:
    • Refactor RNN layers to rely on atomic RNN cells. This makes the creation of custom RNN very simple and user-friendly, via the RNN base class.
    • Add ability to create new RNN cells by stacking a list of cells, allowing for efficient stacked RNNs.
    • Add CuDNNLSTM and CuDNNGRU layers, backend by NVIDIA's cuDNN library for fast GPU training & inference.
    • Add RNN Sequence-to-sequence example script.
    • Add constants argument in RNN's call method, making RNN attention easier to implement.
  • Easier multi-GPU data parallelism via keras.utils.multi_gpu_model.
  • Bug fixes & performance improvements (in particular, native support for NCHW data layout in TensorFlow).
  • Documentation improvements and examples improvements.

API changes

  • Add "fashion mnist" dataset as keras.datasets.fashion_mnist.load_data()
  • Add Minimum merge layer as keras.layers.Minimum (class) and keras.layers.minimum(inputs) (function)
  • Add InceptionResNetV2 to keras.applications.
  • Support bool variables in TensorFlow backend.
  • Add dilation to SeparableConv2D.
  • Add support for dynamic noise_shape in Dropout
  • Add keras.layers.RNN() base class for batch-level RNNs (used to implement custom RNN layers from a cell class).
  • Add keras.layers.StackedRNNCells() layer wrapper, used to stack a list of RNN cells into a single cell.
  • Add CuDNNLSTM and CuDNNGRU layers.
  • Deprecate implementation=0 for RNN layers.
  • The Keras progbar now reports time taken for each past epoch, and average time per step.
  • Add option to specific resampling method in keras.preprocessing.image.load_img().
  • Add keras.utils.multi_gpu_model for easy multi-GPU data parallelism.
  • Add constants argument in RNN's call method, used to pass a list of constant tensors to the underlying RNN cell.

Breaking changes

  • Implementation change in keras.losses.cosine_proximity results in a different (correct) scaling behavior.
  • Implementation change for samplewise normalization in ImageDataGenerator results in a different normalization behavior.
