As previously announced, we have discontinued multi-backend Keras to refocus exclusively on the TensorFlow implementation of Keras.
In the future, we will develop the TensorFlow implementation of Keras in the present repo, at
keras-team/keras. For the time being, it is being developed in
tensorflow/tensorflow and distributed as
tensorflow.keras. In this future, the
keras package on PyPI will be the same as
This release (2.4.0) simply redirects all APIs in the standalone
keras package to point to
tf.keras. This helps address user confusion regarding differences and incompatibilities between
tf.keras and the standalone
keras package. There is now only one Keras:
- Note that this release may be breaking for some workflows when going from Keras 2.3.1 to 2.4.0. Test before upgrading.
- Note that we still recommend that you import Keras as
from tensorflow import keras, rather than
import keras, for the time being.
