2.4.0

<INSERT SMALL BLURB ABOUT RELEASE FOCUS AREA AND POTENTIAL TOOLCHAIN CHANGES>
  
  Breaking Changes
  
  * <DOCUMENT BREAKING CHANGES HERE>
  * <THIS SECTION SHOULD CONTAIN API, ABI AND BEHAVIORAL BREAKING CHANGES>
  * The byte layout for string tensors across the C-API has been updated to match
  TF Core/C++; i.e., a contiguous array of `tensorflow::tstring`/`TF_TString`s.
  * C-API functions `TF_StringDecode`, `TF_StringEncode`, and
  `TF_StringEncodedSize` are no longer relevant and have been removed; see
  core/platform/ctstring.h for string access/modification in C.
  * Removed `tf.distribute.Strategy.experimental_run_v2` method, which was deprecated in TF 2.2.
  * `tensorflow.python`, `tensorflow.core` and `tensorflow.compiler` modules are
  now hidden. These modules are not part of TensorFlow public API.
  * A major refactoring of the internals of the Keras Functional API may affect code that is relying on certain internal details:
  * Code that uses `isinstance(x, tf.Tensor)` instead of `tf.is_tensor` when checking Keras symbolic inputs/outputs should switch to using `tf.is_tensor`.
  * Code that is overly dependent on the exact names attached to symbolic tensors (e.g. assumes there will be ":0" at the end of the inputs, treats names as unique identifiers instead of using `tensor.ref()`, etc.)
  * Code that uses `get_concrete_function` to trace Keras symbolic inputs directly should switch to building matching `tf.TensorSpec`s directly and tracing the `TensorSpec` objects.
  * Code that relies on the exact number and names of the op layers that TensorFlow operations were converted into. These may have changed.
  * Code that uses `tf.map_fn`/`tf.cond`/`tf.while_loop`/control flow as op layers and happens to work before TF 2.4. These will explicitly be unsupported now. Converting these ops to Functional API op layers was unreliable before TF 2.4, and prone to erroring incomprehensibly or being silently buggy.
  * Code that directly asserts on a Keras symbolic value in cases where ops like `tf.rank` used to return a static or symbolic value depending on if the input had a fully static shape or not. Now these ops always return symbolic values.
  * Code already susceptible to leaking tensors outside of graphs becomes slightly more likely to do so now.
  * Code that requires very tricky shape manipulation via converted op layers in order to work, where the Keras symbolic shape inference proves insufficient.
  * Code that tries manually walking a `tf.keras.Model` layer by layer and assumes layers only ever have one positional argument. This assumption doesn't hold true before TF 2.4 either, but is more likely to cause issues know.
  * Code that manually enters `keras.backend.get_graph()` before building a functional model. This is no longer needed.
  
  
  Known Caveats
  
  * <CAVEATS REGARDING THE RELEASE (BUT NOT BREAKING CHANGES). E.G. ADDING A NEW DEPENDENCY, BUMPING A DEPENDENCY NUMBER, LACK OF SUPPORT ON SOME PLATFORM, ETC>
  
  Major Features and Improvements
  
  * <INSERT MAJOR FEATURE HERE, USING MARKDOWN SYNTAX>
  * <IF RELEASE CONTAINS MULTIPLE FEATURES FROM SAME AREA, GROUP THEM TOGETHER>
  * A new module named `tf.experimental.numpy` is added, which is a NumPy-compatible API for writing TF programs. This module provides class `ndarray`, which mimics the `ndarray` class in NumPy, and wraps an immutable `tf.Tensor` under the hood. A subset of NumPy functions (e.g. `numpy.add`) are provided. Their inter-operation with TF facilities is seamless in most cases. See tensorflow/python/ops/numpy_ops/README.md for details of what are supported and what are the differences with NumPy.
  * A major refactoring of the internals of the Keras Functional API has been completed, that should improve the reliability, stability, and performance of constructing Functional models.
  
  Bug Fixes and Other Changes
  
  * <SIMILAR TO ABOVE SECTION, BUT FOR OTHER IMPORTANT CHANGES / BUG FIXES>
  * <IF A CHANGE CLOSES A GITHUB ISSUE, IT SHOULD BE DOCUMENTED HERE>
  * <NOTES SHOULD BE GROUPED PER AREA>
  * TF Core:
  * `tf.types.experimental.TensorLike` is a new `Union` type that can be used as
  type annotation for variables representing a Tensor or a value that can be
  converted to Tensor by `tf.convert_to_tensor`.
  * Calling ops with a python constants or numpy values is now consistent with
  tf.convert_to_tensor behavior. This avoids operations like tf.reshape
  truncating inputs such as from int64 to int32.
  * Added `tf.sparse.map_values` to apply a function to the `.value`s of `SparseTensror` arguments.
  * The Python bitwise operators for `Tensor` (`__and__`, `__or__`, `__xor__`
  and `__invert__` now support non-`bool` arguments and apply the
  corresponding bitwise ops. `bool` arguments continue to be supported and
  dispatch to logical ops. This brings them more in line with Python and NumPy
  benavior.
  * `tf.data`:
  * Added new `tf.data.experimental.service.register_dataset` and
  `tf.data.experimental.service.from_dataset_id` APIs to enable one process
  to register a dataset with the tf.data service, and another process to
  consume data from the dataset.
  * Added optional `exclude_cols` parameter to CsvDataset. This parameter is
  the complement of `select_cols`; at most one of these should be specified.
  * We have implemented an optimization which reorders data-discarding
  transformations such as `take` and `shard` to happen earlier in the
  dataset when it is safe to do so. The optimization can be disabled via
  the `experimental_optimization.reorder_data_discarding_ops` dataset
  option.
  *   `tf.distribute`:
  * <ADD RELEASE NOTES HERE>
  * `tf.keras`:
  * Improvements from the functional API refactoring:
  * Functional model construction does not need to maintain a global workspace graph, removing memory leaks especially when building many models or very large models.
  * Functional model construction should be ~8-10% faster on average.
  * Functional models can now contain non-symbolic values in their call inputs inside of the first positional argument.
  * Several classes of TF ops that were not reliably converted to Keras layers during functional API construction should now work, e.g. `tf.image.ssim_multiscale`
  * Error messages when Functional API construction goes wrong (and when ops cannot be converted to Keras layers automatically) should be clearer and easier to understand.
  * <ADD RELEASE NOTES HERE>
  * `tf.function` / AutoGraph:
  * Added `experimental_follow_type_hints` argument for `tf.function`. When
  True, the function may use type annotations to optimize the tracing
  performance.
  *   `tf.lite`:
  * <ADD RELEASE NOTES HERE>
  *   `tf.random`:
  * <ADD RELEASE NOTES HERE>
  *   Math and Linear Algebra:
  * <ADD RELEASE NOTES HERE>
  *   TPU Enhancements:
  * <ADD RELEASE NOTES HERE>
  *   XLA Support:
  * <ADD RELEASE NOTES HERE>
  *   Tracing and Debugging:
  * <ADD RELEASE NOTES HERE>
  *   Other:
  * We have replaced uses of "whitelist" and "blacklist" with "allowlist"
  and "denylist" where possible. Please see
  https://developers.google.com/style/word-listblacklist for more context.

2.3.0

Breaking Changes
  
  *   `tf.image.extract_glimpse` has been updated to correctly process the case
  where `centered=False` and `normalized=False`. This is a breaking change as
  the output is different from (incorrect) previous versions. Note this
  breaking change only impacts `tf.image.extract_glimpse` and
  `tf.compat.v2.image.extract_glimpse` API endpoints. The behavior of
  `tf.compat.v1.image.extract_glimpse` does not change. The behavior of
  exsiting C++ kernel `ExtractGlimpse` does not change as well, so saved
  models will not be impacted.
  
  Bug Fixes and Other Changes
  * Mutable tables now restore checkpointed values when loaded from SavedModel.

2.2.0

TensorFlow 2.2 discontinues support for Python 2, [previously announced](https://groups.google.com/a/tensorflow.org/d/msg/announce/gVwS5RC8mds/dCt1ka2XAAAJ) as following [Python 2's EOL on January 1, 2020](https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0373/update).
  
  Coinciding with this change, new releases of [TensorFlow's Docker images](https://hub.docker.com/r/tensorflow/tensorflow/) provide Python 3 exclusively. Because all images now use Python 3, Docker tags containing `-py3` will no longer be provided and existing `-py3` tags like `latest-py3` will not be updated.
  
  Major Features and Improvements
  
  * Replaced the scalar type for string tensors from `std::string` to `tensorflow::tstring` which is now ABI stable.
  * A new Profiler for TF 2 for CPU/GPU/TPU. It offers both device and host performance analysis, including input pipeline and TF Ops. Optimization advisory is provided whenever possible. Please see [this tutorial](https://www.tensorflow.org/tensorboard/tensorboard_profiling_keras) and [guide](https://www.tensorflow.org/guide/profiler) for usage guidelines.
  * Export C++ functions to Python using `pybind11` as opposed to `SWIG` as a part of our [deprecation of swig efforts](https://github.com/tensorflow/community/blob/master/rfcs/20190208-pybind11.md).
  * `tf.distribute`:
  * Support added for global sync `BatchNormalization` by using the newly added `tf.keras.layers.experimental.SyncBatchNormalization` layer. This layer will sync `BatchNormalization` statistics every step across all replicas taking part in sync training.
  * Performance improvements for GPU multi-worker distributed training using `tf.distribute.experimental.MultiWorkerMirroredStrategy`
  * Update NVIDIA `NCCL` to `2.5.7-1` for better performance and performance tuning. Please see [nccl developer guide](https://docs.nvidia.com/deeplearning/sdk/nccl-developer-guide/docs/env.html) for more information on this.
  * Support gradient `allreduce` in `float16`. See this [example](https://github.com/tensorflow/models/blob/master/official/staging/training/grad_utils.py) usage.
  * Experimental support of [all reduce gradient packing](https://www.tensorflow.org/api_docs/python/tf/distribute/experimental/CollectiveHints) to allow overlapping gradient aggregation with backward path computation.
  * Deprecated `experimental_run_v2` method for distribution strategies and renamed the method `run` as it is no longer experimental.
  * Add CompositeTensor support for DistributedIterators. This should help prevent unnecessary function retracing and memory leaks.
  * `tf.keras`:
  * `Model.fit` major improvements:
  * You can now use custom training logic with `Model.fit` by overriding `Model.train_step`.
  * Easily write state-of-the-art training loops without worrying about all of the features `Model.fit` handles for you (distribution strategies, callbacks, data formats, looping logic, etc)
  * See the default [`Model.train_step`](https://github.com/tensorflow/tensorflow/blob/1381fc8e15e22402417b98e3881dfd409998daea/tensorflow/python/keras/engine/training.pyL540) for an example of what this function should look like. Same applies for validation and inference via `Model.test_step` and `Model.predict_step`.
  * SavedModel uses its own `Model._saved_model_inputs_spec` attr now instead of
  relying on `Model.inputs` and `Model.input_names`, which are no longer set for subclass Models.
  This attr is set in eager, `tf.function`, and graph modes. This gets rid of the need for users to
  manually call `Model._set_inputs` when using Custom Training Loops(CTLs).
  * Dynamic shapes are supported for generators by calling the Model on the first batch we "peek" from the generator.
  This used to happen implicitly in `Model._standardize_user_data`. Long-term, a solution where the
  `DataAdapter` doesn't need to call the Model is probably preferable.
  * The SavedModel format now supports all Keras built-in layers (including metrics, preprocessing layers, and stateful RNN layers)
  * Update Keras batch normalization layer to use the running mean and average computation in the `fused_batch_norm`. You should see significant performance improvements when using `fused_batch_norm` in Eager mode.
  
  * `tf.lite`:
  * Enable TFLite experimental new converter by default.
  * XLA
  * XLA now builds and works on windows. All prebuilt packages come with XLA available.
  * XLA can be [enabled for a `tf.function`](https://www.tensorflow.org/xlaexplicit_compilation_with_tffunction
  ) with “compile or throw exception” semantics on CPU and GPU.
  
  Breaking Changes
  * `tf.keras`:
  * In `tf.keras.applications` the name of the "top" layer has been standardized to "predictions". This is only a problem if your code relies on the exact name of the layer.
  * Huber loss function has been updated to be consistent with other Keras losses. It now computes mean over the last axis of per-sample losses before applying the reduction function.
  * AutoGraph no longer converts functions passed to `tf.py_function`, `tf.py_func` and `tf.numpy_function`.
  * Deprecating `XLA_CPU` and `XLA_GPU` devices with this release.
  * Increasing the minimum bazel version to build TF to 2.0.0 to use Bazel's `cc_experimental_shared_library`.
  * Keras compile/fit behavior for functional and subclassed models have been unified. Model properties such as `metrics`, `metrics_names` will now be available only after **training/evaluating the model on actual data** for functional models. `metrics` will **now include** model `loss` and output losses.`loss_functions` property has been removed from the model. This was an undocumented property that was accidentally public and has now been removed.
  
  Known Caveats
  * The current TensorFlow release now **requires** [gast](https://pypi.org/project/gast/) version 0.3.3.
  
  Bug Fixes and Other Changes
  
  *   `tf.data`:
  *   Removed `autotune_algorithm` from experimental optimization options.
  *   TF Core:
  *   `tf.constant` always creates CPU tensors irrespective of the current
  device context.
  *   Eager `TensorHandles` maintain a list of mirrors for any copies to local
  or remote devices. This avoids any redundant copies due to op execution.
  *   For `tf.Tensor` & `tf.Variable`, `.experimental_ref()` is no longer
  experimental and is available as simply `.ref()`.
  *   `pfor/vectorized_map`: Added support for vectorizing 56 more ops.
  Vectorizing `tf.cond` is also supported now.
  *   Set as much partial shape as we can infer statically within the gradient
  impl of the gather op.
  *   Gradient of `tf.while_loop` emits `StatelessWhile` op if `cond` and body
  functions are stateless. This allows multiple gradients while ops to run
  in parallel under distribution strategy.
  *   Speed up `GradientTape` in eager mode by auto-generating list of op
  inputs/outputs which are unused and hence not cached for gradient
  functions.
  *   Support `back_prop=False` in `while_v2` but mark it as deprecated.
  *   Improve error message when attempting to use `None` in data-dependent
  control flow.
  *   Add `RaggedTensor.numpy()`.
  *   Update `RaggedTensor.__getitem__` to preserve uniform dimensions & allow
  indexing into uniform dimensions.
  *   Update `tf.expand_dims` to always insert the new dimension as a
  non-ragged dimension.
  *   Update `tf.embedding_lookup` to use `partition_strategy` and `max_norm`
  when `ids` is ragged.
  *   Allow `batch_dims==rank(indices)` in `tf.gather`.
  *   Add support for bfloat16 in `tf.print`.
  *   `tf.distribute`:
  *   Support `embedding_column` with variable-length input features for
  `MultiWorkerMirroredStrategy`.
  *   `tf.keras`:
  *   Added `experimental_aggregate_gradients` argument to
  `tf.keras.optimizer.Optimizer.apply_gradients`. This allows custom
  gradient aggregation and processing aggregated gradients in custom
  training loop.
  *   Allow `pathlib.Path` paths for loading models via Keras API.
  *   `tf.function`/AutoGraph:
  *   AutoGraph is now available in `ReplicaContext.merge_call`,
  `Strategy.extended.update` and `Strategy.extended.update_non_slot`.
  *   Experimental support for shape invariants has been enabled in
  `tf.function`. See the API docs for
  `tf.autograph.experimental.set_loop_options` for additional info.
  *   AutoGraph error messages now exclude frames corresponding to APIs
  internal to AutoGraph.
  *   Improve shape inference for `tf.function` input arguments to unlock more
  Grappler optimizations in TensorFlow 2.x.
  *   Improve automatic control dependency management of resources by allowing
  resource reads to occur in parallel and synchronizing only on writes.
  *   Fix execution order of multiple stateful calls to `experimental_run_v2`
  in `tf.function`.
  *   You can now iterate over `RaggedTensors` using a for loop inside
  `tf.function`.
  *   `tf.lite`:
  *   Migrated the `tf.lite` C inference API out of experimental into lite/c.
  *   Add an option to disallow `NNAPI` CPU / partial acceleration on Android
  10
  *   TFLite Android AARs now include the C headers and APIs are required to
  use TFLite from native code.
  *   Refactors the delegate and delegate kernel sources to allow usage in the
  linter.
  *   Limit delegated ops to actually supported ones if a device name is
  specified or `NNAPI` CPU Fallback is disabled.
  *   TFLite now supports `tf.math.reciprocal1` op by lowering to `tf.div op`.
  *   TFLite's unpack op now supports boolean tensor inputs.
  *   Microcontroller and embedded code moved from experimental to main
  TensorFlow Lite folder
  *   Check for large TFLite tensors.
  *   Fix GPU delegate crash with C++17.
  *   Add 5D support to TFLite `strided_slice`.
  *   Fix error in delegation of `DEPTH_TO_SPACE` to `NNAPI` causing op not to
  be accelerated.
  *   Fix segmentation fault when running a model with LSTM nodes using
  `NNAPI` Delegate
  *   Fix `NNAPI` delegate failure when an operand for Maximum/Minimum
  operation is a scalar.
  *   Fix `NNAPI` delegate failure when Axis input for reduce operation is a
  scalar.
  *   Expose option to limit the number of partitions that will be delegated
  to `NNAPI`.
  *   If a target accelerator is specified, use its feature level to determine
  operations to delegate instead of SDK version.
  *   `tf.random`:
  *   Various random number generation improvements:
  *   Add a fast path for default `random_uniform`
  *   `random_seed` documentation improvement.
  *   `RandomBinomial` broadcasts and appends the sample shape to the left
  rather than the right.
  *   Added `tf.random.stateless_binomial`, `tf.random.stateless_gamma`,
  `tf.random.stateless_poisson`
  *   `tf.random.stateless_uniform` now supports unbounded sampling of `int`
  types.
  *   Math and Linear Algebra:
  *   Add `tf.linalg.LinearOperatorTridiag`.
  *   Add `LinearOperatorBlockLowerTriangular`
  *   Add broadcasting support to
  tf.linalg.triangular_solve[26204](https://github.com/tensorflow/tensorflow/issues/26204),
  tf.math.invert_permutation.
  *   Add `tf.math.sobol_sample` op.
  *   Add `tf.math.xlog1py`.
  *   Add `tf.math.special.{dawsn,expi,fresnel_cos,fresnel_sin,spence}`.
  *   Add a Modified Discrete Cosine Transform (MDCT) and its inverse to
  `tf.signal`.
  *   TPU Enhancements:
  *   Refactor `TpuClusterResolver` to move shared logic to a separate pip
  package.
  *   Support configuring TPU software version from cloud tpu client.
  *   Allowed TPU embedding weight decay factor to be multiplied by learning
  rate.
  *   XLA Support:
  *   Add standalone XLA AOT runtime target + relevant .cc sources to pip
  package.
  *   Add check for memory alignment to MemoryAllocation::MemoryAllocation()
  on 32-bit ARM. This ensures a deterministic early exit instead of a hard
  to debug bus error later.
  *   `saved_model_cli aot_compile_cpu` allows you to compile saved models to
  XLA header+object files and include them in your C++ programs.
  *   Enable `Igamma`, `Igammac` for XLA.
  *   Deterministic Op Functionality:
  *   XLA reduction emitter is deterministic when the environment variable
  `TF_DETERMINISTIC_OPS` is set to "true" or "1". This extends
  deterministic `tf.nn.bias_add` back-prop functionality (and therefore
  also deterministic back-prop of bias-addition in Keras layers) to
  include when XLA JIT compilation is enabled.
  *   Fix problem, when running on a CUDA GPU and when either environment
  variable `TF_DETERMINISTIC_OPS` or environment variable
  `TF_CUDNN_DETERMINISTIC` is set to "true" or "1", in which some layer
  configurations led to an exception with the message "No algorithm
  worked!"
  *   Tracing and Debugging:
  *   Add source, destination name to `_send` traceme to allow easier
  debugging.
  *   Add traceme event to `fastpathexecute`.
  *   Other:
  *   Fix an issue with AUC.reset_states for multi-label AUC
  [35852](https://github.com/tensorflow/tensorflow/issues/35852)
  *   Fix the TF upgrade script to not delete files when there is a parsing
  error and the output mode is `in-place`.
  *   Move `tensorflow/core:framework/*_pyclif` rules to
  `tensorflow/core/framework:*_pyclif`.

  * Updates `curl` to `7.69.1` to handle [CVE-2019-15601](https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2019-15601)
  * Updates `libjpeg-turbo` to `2.0.4` to handle [CVE-2018-19664](https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2018-19664), [CVE-2018-20330](https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2018-20330) and [CVE-2019-13960](https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2019-13960)
  * Updates Apache Spark to `2.4.5` to handle [CVE-2019-10099](https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2019-10099), [CVE-2018-17190](https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2018-17190) and [CVE-2018-11770](https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2018-11770)
  * Fixes a versioning bug which causes Keras layers from TF 1.x to be used instead of those from TF 2.x

2.1.0

TensorFlow 2.1 will be the last TF release supporting Python 2. Python 2 support [officially ends an January 1, 2020](https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0373/update). [As announced earlier](https://groups.google.com/a/tensorflow.org/d/msg/announce/gVwS5RC8mds/dCt1ka2XAAAJ), TensorFlow will also stop supporting Python 2 starting January 1, 2020, and no more releases are expected in 2019.
  
  Major Features and Improvements
  
  *   The `tensorflow` pip package now includes GPU support by default (same as
  `tensorflow-gpu`) for both Linux and Windows. This runs on machines with and
  without NVIDIA GPUs. `tensorflow-gpu` is still available, and CPU-only
  packages can be downloaded at `tensorflow-cpu` for users who are concerned
  about package size.
  *   **Windows users:** Officially-released `tensorflow` Pip packages are now
  built with Visual Studio 2019 version 16.4 in order to take advantage of the
  new `/d2ReducedOptimizeHugeFunctions` compiler flag. To use these new
  packages, you must install "Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual
  Studio 2015, 2017 and 2019", available from Microsoft's website
  [here](https://support.microsoft.com/help/2977003/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads).
  *   This does not change the minimum required version for building
  TensorFlow from source on Windows, but builds enabling
  `EIGEN_STRONG_INLINE` can take over 48 hours to compile without this
  flag. Refer to `configure.py` for more information about
  `EIGEN_STRONG_INLINE` and `/d2ReducedOptimizeHugeFunctions`.
  *   If either of the required DLLs, `msvcp140.dll` (old) or `msvcp140_1.dll`
  (new), are missing on your machine, `import tensorflow` will print a
  warning message.
  *   The `tensorflow` pip package is built with CUDA 10.1 and cuDNN 7.6.
  *   `tf.keras`
  *   Experimental support for mixed precision is available on GPUs and Cloud
  TPUs. See
  [usage guide](https://www.tensorflow.org/guide/keras/mixed_precision).
  *   Introduced the `TextVectorization` layer, which takes as input raw
  strings and takes care of text standardization, tokenization, n-gram
  generation, and vocabulary indexing. See this
  [end-to-end text classification example](https://colab.research.google.com/drive/1RvCnR7h0_l4Ekn5vINWToI9TNJdpUZB3).
  *   Keras `.compile` `.fit` `.evaluate` and `.predict` are allowed to be
  outside of the DistributionStrategy scope, as long as the model was
  constructed inside of a scope.
  *   Experimental support for Keras `.compile`, `.fit`, `.evaluate`, and
  `.predict` is available for Cloud TPUs, Cloud TPU, for all types of
  Keras models (sequential, functional and subclassing models).
  *   Automatic outside compilation is now enabled for Cloud TPUs. This allows
  `tf.summary` to be used more conveniently with Cloud TPUs.
  *   Dynamic batch sizes with DistributionStrategy and Keras are supported on
  Cloud TPUs.
  *   Support for `.fit`, `.evaluate`, `.predict` on TPU using numpy data, in
  addition to `tf.data.Dataset`.
  *   Keras reference implementations for many popular models are available in
  the TensorFlow
  [Model Garden](https://github.com/tensorflow/models/tree/master/official).
  *   `tf.data`
  *   Changes rebatching for `tf.data datasets` + DistributionStrategy for
  better performance. Note that the dataset also behaves slightly
  differently, in that the rebatched dataset cardinality will always be a
  multiple of the number of replicas.
  *   `tf.data.Dataset` now supports automatic data distribution and sharding
  in distributed environments, including on TPU pods.
  *   Distribution policies for `tf.data.Dataset` can now be tuned with 1.
  `tf.data.experimental.AutoShardPolicy(OFF, AUTO, FILE, DATA)` 2.
  `tf.data.experimental.ExternalStatePolicy(WARN, IGNORE, FAIL)`
  *   `tf.debugging`
  *   Add `tf.debugging.enable_check_numerics()` and
  `tf.debugging.disable_check_numerics()` to help debugging the root
  causes of issues involving infinities and `NaN`s.
  *   `tf.distribute`
  *   Custom training loop support on TPUs and TPU pods is available through
  `strategy.experimental_distribute_dataset`,
  `strategy.experimental_distribute_datasets_from_function`,
  `strategy.experimental_run_v2`, `strategy.reduce`.
  *   Support for a global distribution strategy through
  `tf.distribute.experimental_set_strategy(),` in addition to
  `strategy.scope()`.
  *   `TensorRT`
  *   [TensorRT 6.0](https://developer.nvidia.com/tensorrttensorrt-whats-new)
  is now supported and enabled by default. This adds support for more
  TensorFlow ops including Conv3D, Conv3DBackpropInputV2, AvgPool3D,
  MaxPool3D, ResizeBilinear, and ResizeNearestNeighbor. In addition, the
  TensorFlow-TensorRT python conversion API is exported as
  `tf.experimental.tensorrt.Converter`.
  *   Environment variable `TF_DETERMINISTIC_OPS` has been added. When set to
  "true" or "1", this environment variable makes `tf.nn.bias_add` operate
  deterministically (i.e. reproducibly), but currently only when XLA JIT
  compilation is *not* enabled. Setting `TF_DETERMINISTIC_OPS` to "true" or
  "1" also makes cuDNN convolution and max-pooling operate deterministically.
  This makes Keras Conv\*D and MaxPool\*D layers operate deterministically in
  both the forward and backward directions when running on a CUDA-enabled GPU.
  
  Breaking Changes
  * Deletes `Operation.traceback_with_start_lines` for which we know of no usages.
  * Removed `id` from `tf.Tensor.__repr__()` as `id` is not useful other than internal debugging.
  * Some `tf.assert_*` methods now raise assertions at operation creation time if the input tensors' values are known at that time, not during the `session.run()`. This only changes behavior when the graph execution would have resulted in an error. When this happens, a noop is returned and the input tensors are marked non-feedable. In other words, if they are used as keys in `feed_dict` argument to `session.run()`, an error will be raised. Also, because some assert ops don't make it into the graph, the graph structure changes. A different graph can result in different per-op random seeds when they are not given explicitly (most often).
  * The following APIs are not longer experimental: `tf.config.list_logical_devices`, `tf.config.list_physical_devices`, `tf.config.get_visible_devices`, `tf.config.set_visible_devices`, `tf.config.get_logical_device_configuration`, `tf.config.set_logical_device_configuration`.
  * `tf.config.experimentalVirtualDeviceConfiguration` has been renamed to `tf.config.LogicalDeviceConfiguration`.
  * `tf.config.experimental_list_devices` has been removed, please use
  `tf.config.list_logical_devices`.

  * `Model.fit_generator`, `Model.evaluate_generator`, `Model.predict_generator`, `Model.train_on_batch`, `Model.test_on_batch`, and `Model.predict_on_batch` methods now respect the `run_eagerly` property, and will correctly run using `tf.function` by default. Note that `Model.fit_generator`, `Model.evaluate_generator`, and `Model.predict_generator` are deprecated endpoints. They are subsumed by `Model.fit`, `Model.evaluate`, and `Model.predict` which now support generators and Sequences.
  * `tf.lite`
  * Legalization for `NMS` ops in TFLite.
  * add `narrow_range` and `axis` to `quantize_v2` and `dequantize` ops.
  * Added support for `FusedBatchNormV3` in converter.

  * Converts hardswish subgraphs into atomic ops.
  * Other
  * Critical stability updates for TPUs, especially in cases where the XLA compiler produces compilation errors.
  * TPUs can now be re-initialized multiple times, using `tf.tpu.experimental.initialize_tpu_system`.
  * Add `RaggedTensor.merge_dims()`.
  * Added new `uniform_row_length` row-partitioning tensor to `RaggedTensor`.
  * Add `shape` arg to `RaggedTensor.to_tensor`; Improve speed of `RaggedTensor.to_tensor`.
  * `tf.io.parse_sequence_example` and `tf.io.parse_single_sequence_example` now support ragged features.
  * Fix `while_v2` with variables in custom gradient.

  * Fix bug where `vectorized_map` failed on inputs with unknown static shape.
  * Add preliminary support for sparse CSR matrices.
  * Tensor equality with `None` now behaves as expected.
  * Make calls to `tf.function(f)()`, `tf.function(f).get_concrete_function` and `tf.function(f).get_initialization_function` thread-safe.
  * Extend `tf.identity` to work with CompositeTensors (such as SparseTensor)
  * Added more `dtypes` and zero-sized inputs to `Einsum` Op and improved its performance
  * Enable multi-worker `NCCL` `all-reduce` inside functions executing eagerly.
  * Added complex128 support to `RFFT`, `RFFT2D`, `RFFT3D`, `IRFFT`, `IRFFT2D`, and `IRFFT3D`.

  * A few performance optimizations on `tf.reduce_logsumexp`.
  * Added multilabel handling to `AUC` metric
  * Optimization on `zeros_like`.
  * Dimension constructor now requires `None` or types with an `__index__` method.
  * Add `tf.random.uniform` microbenchmark.
  * Use `_protogen` suffix for proto library targets instead of `_cc_protogen` suffix.
  * Moving the checkpoint reader from `swig` to `pybind11`.
  * `tf.device` & `MirroredStrategy` now supports passing in a `tf.config.LogicalDevice`
  * If you're building Tensorflow from source, consider using [bazelisk](https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazelisk) to automatically download and use the correct Bazel version. Bazelisk reads the `.bazelversion` file at the root of the project directory.

2.0

* Easy model building with Keras and eager execution.
  * Robust model deployment in production on any platform.
  * Powerful experimentation for research.
  * API simplification by reducing duplication and removing deprecated endpoints.
  
  For details on best practices with 2.0, see [the Effective 2.0 guide](https://www.tensorflow.org/beta/guide/effective_tf2)
  
  
  For information on upgrading your existing TensorFlow 1.x models, please refer to our [Upgrade](https://medium.com/tensorflow/upgrading-your-code-to-tensorflow-2-0-f72c3a4d83b5) and [Migration](https://www.tensorflow.org/beta/guide/migration_guide) guides. We have also released a collection of [tutorials and getting started guides](https://www.tensorflow.org/beta).
  
  Highlights
  
  *   TF 2.0 delivers Keras as the central high level API used to build and train
  models. Keras provides several model-building APIs such as Sequential,
  Functional, and Subclassing along with eager execution, for immediate
  iteration and intuitive debugging, and `tf.data`, for building scalable
  input pipelines. Checkout
  [guide](https://www.tensorflow.org/beta/guide/keras/overview) for additional
  details.
  *   Distribution Strategy: TF 2.0 users will be able to use the
  [`tf.distribute.Strategy`](https://www.tensorflow.org/beta/guide/distribute_strategy)
  API to distribute training with minimal code changes, yielding great
  out-of-the-box performance. It supports distributed training with Keras
  model.fit, as well as with custom training loops. Multi-GPU support is
  available, along with experimental support for multi worker and Cloud TPUs.
  Check out the
  [guide](https://www.tensorflow.org/beta/guide/distribute_strategy) for more
  details.
  *   Functions, not Sessions. The traditional declarative programming model of
  building a graph and executing it via a `tf.Session` is discouraged, and
  replaced with by writing regular Python functions. Using the `tf.function`
  decorator, such functions can be turned into graphs which can be executed
  remotely, serialized, and optimized for performance.
  *   Unification of `tf.train.Optimizers` and `tf.keras.Optimizers`. Use
  `tf.keras.Optimizers` for TF2.0. `compute_gradients` is removed as public
  API, use `GradientTape` to compute gradients.
  *   AutoGraph translates Python control flow into TensorFlow expressions,
  allowing users to write regular Python inside `tf.function`-decorated
  functions. AutoGraph is also applied in functions used with tf.data,
  tf.distribute and tf.keras APIs.
  *   Unification of exchange formats to SavedModel. All TensorFlow ecosystem
  projects (TensorFlow Lite, TensorFlow JS, TensorFlow Serving, TensorFlow
  Hub) accept SavedModels. Model state should be saved to and restored from
  SavedModels.
  *   API Changes: Many API symbols have been renamed or removed, and argument
  names have changed. Many of these changes are motivated by consistency and
  clarity. The 1.x API remains available in the compat.v1 module. A list of
  all symbol changes can be found
  [here](https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1FLFJLzg7WNP6JHODX5q8BDgptKafq_slHpnHVbJIteQ/editgid=0).
  *   API clean-up, included removing `tf.app`, `tf.flags`, and `tf.logging`
  in favor of [absl-py](https://github.com/abseil/abseil-py).
  *   No more global variables with helper methods like
  `tf.global_variables_initializer` and `tf.get_global_step`.
  *   Add toggles `tf.enable_control_flow_v2()` and `tf.disable_control_flow_v2()`
  for enabling/disabling v2 control flow.
  *   Enable v2 control flow as part of `tf.enable_v2_behavior()` and
  `TF2_BEHAVIOR=1`.
  *   Fixes autocomplete for most TensorFlow API references by switching to use
  relative imports in API `__init__.py` files.
  *   Auto Mixed-Precision graph optimizer simplifies converting models to
  `float16` for acceleration on Volta and Turing Tensor Cores. This feature
  can be enabled by wrapping an optimizer class with
  `tf.train.experimental.enable_mixed_precision_graph_rewrite()`.
  *   Add environment variable `TF_CUDNN_DETERMINISTIC`. Setting to "true" or "1"
  forces the selection of deterministic cuDNN convolution and max-pooling
  algorithms. When this is enabled, the algorithm selection procedure itself
  is also deterministic.
  
  Breaking Changes
  * Many backwards incompatible API changes have been made to clean up the APIs and make them more consistent.
  * Toolchains:
  * TensorFlow 2.0.0 is built using devtoolset7 (GCC7) on Ubuntu 16. This may lead to ABI incompatibilities with extensions built against earlier versions of TensorFlow.
  * Tensorflow code now produces 2 different pip packages: tensorflow_core containing all the code (in the future it will contain only the private implementation) and tensorflow which is a virtual pip package doing forwarding to tensorflow_core (and in the future will contain only the public API of tensorflow). We don't expect this to be breaking, unless you were importing directly from the implementation.
  Removed the `freeze_graph` command line tool; `SavedModel` should be used in place of frozen graphs.
  
  * `tf.contrib`:
  * `tf.contrib` has been deprecated, and functionality has been either migrated to the core TensorFlow API, to an ecosystem project such as [tensorflow/addons](https://www.github.com/tensorflow/addons) or [tensorflow/io](https://www.github.com/tensorflow/io), or removed entirely.
  * Remove `tf.contrib.timeseries` dependency on TF distributions.
  * Replace contrib references with `tf.estimator.experimental.*` for apis in `early_stopping.py`.
  
  * `tf.estimator`:
  * Premade estimators in the tf.estimator.DNN/Linear/DNNLinearCombined family have been updated to use `tf.keras.optimizers` instead of the `tf.compat.v1.train.Optimizer`s. If you do not pass in an `optimizer=` arg or if you use a string, the premade estimator will use the Keras optimizer. This is checkpoint breaking, as the optimizers have separate variables. A checkpoint converter tool for converting optimizers is included with the release,  but if you want to avoid any change, switch to the v1 version of the estimator:  `tf.compat.v1.estimator.DNN/Linear/DNNLinearCombined*`.
  * Default aggregation for canned Estimators is now `SUM_OVER_BATCH_SIZE`. To maintain previous default behavior, please pass `SUM` as the loss aggregation method.
  * Canned Estimators don’t support `input_layer_partitioner` arg in the API. If you have this arg, you will have to switch to `tf.compat.v1 canned Estimators`.
  * `Estimator.export_savedmodel` has been renamed to `export_saved_model`.
  * When saving to SavedModel, Estimators will strip default op attributes. This is almost always the correct behavior, as it is more forwards compatible, but if you require that default attributes to be saved with the model, please use `tf.compat.v1.Estimator`.
  * Feature Columns have been upgraded to be more Eager-friendly and to work with Keras. As a result, `tf.feature_column.input_layer` has been deprecated in favor of `tf.keras.layers.DenseFeatures`. v1 feature columns have direct analogues in v2 except for `shared_embedding_columns`, which are not cross-compatible with v1 and v2. Use `tf.feature_column.shared_embeddings` instead.
  
  * `tf.keras`:
  * `OMP_NUM_THREADS` is no longer used by the default Keras config.  To configure the number of threads, use `tf.config.threading` APIs.
  * `tf.keras.model.save_model` and `model.save` now defaults to saving a TensorFlow SavedModel. HDF5 files are still supported.
  * Deprecated `tf.keras.experimental.export_saved_model` and `tf.keras.experimental.function`. Please use `tf.keras.models.save_model(..., save_format='tf')` and `tf.keras.models.load_model` instead.
  * Layers now default to float32, and automatically cast their inputs to the layer's dtype. If you had a model that used float64, it will probably silently use float32 in TensorFlow 2, and a warning will be issued that starts with `Layer <layer-name>` is casting an input tensor from dtype float64 to the layer's dtype of float32. To fix, either set the default dtype to float64 with `tf.keras.backend.set_floatx('float64')`, or pass `dtype='float64'` to each of the Layer constructors. See `tf.keras.layers.Layer` for more information.
  
  * `tf.lite`:
  * Removed `lite.OpHint`, `lite.experimental`, and `lite.constant` from 2.0 API.
  * Tensors are no longer hashable, but instead compare element-wise with `==` and `!=`. Use `tf.compat.v1.disable_tensor_equality()` to return to the previous behavior.
  * Performing equality operations on Tensors or Variables with incompatible shapes an exception is no longer thrown. Instead `__eq__` returns False and `__ne__` returns True.
  * Removed `tf.string_split` from v2 API.
  * Deprecated the use of `constraint=` and `.constraint` with ResourceVariable.
  * Add `UnifiedGRU` as the new GRU implementation for tf2.0. Change the default recurrent activation function for GRU from `hard_sigmoid` to `sigmoid`, and `reset_after` to True in 2.0. Historically recurrent activation is `hard_sigmoid` since it is fast than 'sigmoid'. With new unified backend between CPU and GPU mode, since the CuDNN kernel is using sigmoid, we change the default for CPU mode to sigmoid as well. With that, the default GRU will be compatible with both CPU and GPU kernel. This will enable user with GPU to use CuDNN kernel by default and get a 10x performance boost in training. Note that this is checkpoint breaking change. If user want to use their 1.x pre-trained checkpoint, please construct the layer with GRU(recurrent_activation='hard_sigmoid', reset_after=False) to fallback to 1.x behavior.
  * `CUDNN_INSTALL_PATH`, `TENSORRT_INSTALL_PATH`, `NCCL_INSTALL_PATH`, `NCCL_HDR_PATH` are deprecated. Use `TF_CUDA_PATHS` instead which supports a comma-separated list of base paths that are searched to find CUDA libraries and headers.
  
  Refer to our [public project status tracker](https://github.com/orgs/tensorflow/projects/4) and [issues tagged with `2.0`](https://github.com/tensorflow/tensorflow/issues?q=is%3Aopen+is%3Aissue+label%3A2.0) on GitHub for insight into recent issues and development progress.
  
  If you experience any snags when using TF 2.0, please let us know at the [TF 2.0 Testing User Group](https://groups.google.com/a/tensorflow.org/forum/?utm_medium=email&utm_source=footer!forum/testing). We have a support mailing list as well as weekly testing meetings, and would love to hear your migration feedback and questions.
  
  
  Bug Fixes and Other Changes
  
  *   `tf.contrib`:
  
  *   Expose `tf.contrib.proto.*` ops in `tf.io` (they will exist in TF2)
  
  *   `tf.data`:
  
  *   Add support for TensorArrays to `tf.data Dataset`.
  *   Integrate Ragged Tensors with `tf.data`.
  *   All core and experimental tf.data transformations that input
  user-defined functions can span multiple devices now.
  *   Extending the TF 2.0 support for `shuffle(...,
  reshuffle_each_iteration=True)` and `cache()` to work across different
  Python iterators for the same dataset.
  *   Removing the `experimental_numa_aware` option from `tf.data.Options`.
  *   Add `num_parallel_reads` and passing in a Dataset containing filenames
  into `TextLineDataset` and `FixedLengthRecordDataset`.
  *   Add support for defaulting the value of `cycle_length` argument of
  `tf.data.Dataset.interleave` to the number of schedulable CPU cores.
  *   Promoting `tf.data.experimental.enumerate_dataset` to core as
  `tf.data.Dataset.enumerate`.
  *   Promoting `tf.data.experimental.unbatch` to core as
  `tf.data.Dataset.unbatch`.
  *   Adds option for introducing slack in the pipeline to reduce CPU
  contention, via `tf.data.Options().experimental_slack = True`
  *   Added experimental support for parallel batching to `batch()` and
  `padded_batch()`. This functionality can be enabled through
  `tf.data.Options()`.
  *   Support cancellation of long-running `reduce`.
  *   Now we use `dataset` node name as prefix instead of the op name, to
  identify the component correctly in metrics, for pipelines with repeated
  components.
  *   Improve the performance of datasets using `from_tensors()`.
  *   Promoting `unbatch` from experimental to core API.
  *   Adding support for datasets as inputs to `from_tensors` and
  `from_tensor_slices` and batching and unbatching of nested datasets.
  
  *   `tf.distribute`:
  
  *   Enable `tf.distribute.experimental.MultiWorkerMirroredStrategy` working
  in eager mode.
  *   Callbacks are supported in `MultiWorkerMirroredStrategy`.
  *   Disable `run_eagerly` and distribution strategy if there are symbolic
  tensors added to the model using `add_metric` or `add_loss`.
  *   Loss and gradients should now more reliably be correctly scaled w.r.t.
  the global batch size when using a `tf.distribute.Strategy`.
  *   Set default loss reduction as `AUTO` for improving reliability of loss
  scaling with distribution strategy and custom training loops. `AUTO`
  indicates that the reduction option will be determined by the usage
  context. For almost all cases this defaults to `SUM_OVER_BATCH_SIZE`.
  When used in distribution strategy scope, outside of built-in training
  loops such as `tf.keras` `compile` and `fit`, we expect reduction value
  to be 'None' or 'SUM'. Using other values will raise an error.
  *   Support for multi-host `ncclAllReduce` in Distribution Strategy.
  
  *   `tf.estimator`:
  
  *   Replace `tf.contrib.estimator.add_metrics` with
  `tf.estimator.add_metrics`
  *   Use `tf.compat.v1.estimator.inputs` instead of `tf.estimator.inputs`
  *   Replace contrib references with `tf.estimator.experimental.*` for apis
  in early_s in Estimator
  *   Canned Estimators will now use keras optimizers by default. An error
  will be raised if tf.train.Optimizers are used, and you will have to
  switch to tf.keras.optimizers or tf.compat.v1 canned Estimators.
  *   A checkpoint converter for canned Estimators has been provided to
  transition canned Estimators that are warm started from
  `tf.train.Optimizers` to `tf.keras.optimizers`.
  *   Losses are scaled in canned estimator v2 and not in the optimizers
  anymore. If you are using Estimator + distribution strategy + optimikzer
  v1 then the behavior does not change. This implies that if you are using
  custom estimator with optimizer v2, you have to scale losses. We have
  new utilities to help scale losses `tf.nn.compute_average_loss`,
  `tf.nn.scale_regularization_loss`.
  
  *   `tf.keras`:
  
  *   Premade models (including Linear and WideDeep) have been introduced for
  the purpose of replacing Premade estimators.
  *   Model saving changes
  *   `model.save` and `tf.saved_model.save` may now save to the TensorFlow
  SavedModel format. The model can be restored using
  `tf.keras.models.load_model`. HDF5 files are still supported, and may be
  used by specifying `save_format="h5"` when saving.
  *   Raw TensorFlow functions can now be used in conjunction with the Keras
  Functional API during model creation. This obviates the need for users
  to create Lambda layers in most cases when using the Functional API.
  Like Lambda layers, TensorFlow functions that result in Variable
  creation or assign ops are not supported.
  *   Add support for passing list of lists to the `metrics` argument in Keras
  `compile`.
  *   Add `tf.keras.layers.AbstractRNNCell` as the preferred implementation
  for RNN cells in TF v2. User can use it to implement RNN cells with
  custom behavior.
  *   Keras training and validation curves are shown on the same plot when
  using the TensorBoard callback.
  *   Switched Keras `fit/evaluate/predict` execution to use only a single
  unified path by default unless eager execution has been explicitly
  disabled, regardless of input type. This unified path places an
  eager-friendly training step inside of a `tf.function`. With this
  *   All input types are converted to `Dataset`.
  *   The path assumes there is always a distribution strategy. when
  distribution strategy is not specified the path uses a no-op
  distribution strategy.
  *   The training step is wrapped in `tf.function` unless `run_eagerly=True`
  is set in compile. The single path execution code does not yet support
  all use cases. We fallback to the existing v1 execution paths if your
  model contains the following:
  1.  `sample_weight_mode` in compile
  2.  `weighted_metrics` in compile
  3.  v1 optimizer
  4.  target tensors in compile If you are experiencing any issues because
  of this change, please inform us (file an issue) about your use case
  and you can unblock yourself by setting
  `experimental_run_tf_function=False` in compile meanwhile. We have
  seen couple of use cases where the model usage pattern is not as
  expected and would not work with this change.
  *   output tensors of one layer is used in the constructor of another.
  *   symbolic tensors outside the scope of the model are used in custom loss
  functions. The flag can be disabled for these cases and ideally the
  usage pattern will need to be fixed.
  *   Mark Keras `set_session` as `compat.v1` only.
  *   `tf.keras.estimator.model_to_estimator` now supports exporting to
  `tf.train.Checkpoint format`, which allows the saved checkpoints to be
  compatible with `model.load_weights`.
  *   `keras.backend.resize_images` (and consequently,
  `keras.layers.Upsampling2D`) behavior has changed, a bug in the resizing
  implementation was fixed.
  *   Add an `implementation=3` mode for `tf.keras.layers.LocallyConnected2D`
  and `tf.keras.layers.LocallyConnected1D` layers using `tf.SparseTensor`
  to store weights, allowing a dramatic speedup for large sparse models.
  *   Raise error if `batch_size` argument is used when input is
  dataset/generator/keras sequence.
  *   Update TF 2.0 `keras.backend.name_scope` to use TF 2.0 `name_scope`.
  *   Add v2 module aliases for losses, metrics, initializers and optimizers:
  `tf.losses = tf.keras.losses` & `tf.metrics = tf.keras.metrics` &
  `tf.initializers = tf.keras.initializers` & `tf.optimizers =
  tf.keras.optimizers`.
  *   Updates binary cross entropy logic in Keras when input is probabilities.
  Instead of converting probabilities to logits, we are using the cross
  entropy formula for probabilities.
  *   Added public APIs for `cumsum` and `cumprod` keras backend functions.
  *   Add support for temporal sample weight mode in subclassed models.
  *   Raise `ValueError` if an integer is passed to the training APIs.
  *   Added fault-tolerance support for training Keras model via `model.fit()`
  with `MultiWorkerMirroredStrategy`, tutorial available.
  *   Custom Callback tutorial is now available.
  *   To train with `tf.distribute`, Keras API is recommended over estimator.
  *   `steps_per_epoch` and `steps` arguments are supported with numpy arrays.
  *   New error message when unexpected keys are used in
  sample_weight/class_weight dictionaries
  *   Losses are scaled in Keras compile/fit and not in the optimizers
  anymore. If you are using custom training loop, we have new utilities to
  help scale losses `tf.nn.compute_average_loss`,
  `tf.nn.scale_regularization_loss`.
  *   `Layer` apply and add_variable APIs are deprecated.
  *   Added support for channels first data format in cross entropy losses
  with logits and support for tensors with unknown ranks.
  *   Error messages will be raised if `add_update`, `add_metric`, `add_loss`,
  activity regularizers are used inside of a control flow branch.
  *   New loss reduction types:
  *   `AUTO`: Indicates that the reduction option will be determined by the
  usage context. For almost all cases this defaults to
  `SUM_OVER_BATCH_SIZE`. When used with `tf.distribute.Strategy`, outside
  of built-in training loops such as `tf.keras` `compile` and `fit`, we
  expect reduction value to be `SUM` or `NONE`. Using `AUTO` in that case
  will raise an error.
  *   `NONE`: Weighted losses with one dimension reduced (axis=-1, or axis
  specified by loss function). When this reduction type used with built-in
  Keras training loops like `fit`/`evaluate`, the unreduced vector loss is
  passed to the optimizer but the reported loss will be a scalar value.
  *   `SUM`: Scalar sum of weighted losses. 4. `SUM_OVER_BATCH_SIZE`: Scalar
  `SUM` divided by number of elements in losses. This reduction type is
  not supported when used with `tf.distribute.Strategy` outside of
  built-in training loops like `tf.keras` `compile`/`fit`.
  *   Wraps losses passed to the `compile` API (strings and v1 losses) which
  are not instances of v2 `Loss` class in `LossWrapper` class. => All
  losses will now use `SUM_OVER_BATCH_SIZE` reduction as default.
  *   `model.add_loss(symbolic_tensor)` should work in ambient eager.
  *   Update metric name to always reflect what the user has given in compile.
  Affects following cases
  *   When name is given as 'accuracy'/'crossentropy'
  *   When an aliased function name is used eg. 'mse'
  *   Removing the `weighted` prefix from weighted metric names.
  *   Allow non-Tensors through v2 losses.
  *   Add v2 sparse categorical crossentropy metric.
  *   Add v2 APIs for `AUCCurve` and `AUCSummationMethod` enums.
  *   `add_update` can now be passed a zero-arg callable in order to support
  turning off the update when setting `trainable=False` on a Layer of a
  Model compiled with `run_eagerly=True`.
  *   Standardize the LayerNormalization API by replacing the args `norm_axis`
  and `params_axis` with `axis`.
  *   Fixed critical bugs that help with DenseFeatures usability in TF2
  
  *   `tf.lite`:
  
  *   Added evaluation script for `COCO` minival
  *   Add delegate support for `QUANTIZE`.
  *   Add `GATHER` support to NN API delegate.
  *   Added support for TFLiteConverter Python API in 2.0. Contains functions
  from_saved_model, from_keras_file, and from_concrete_functions.
  *   Add `EXPAND_DIMS` support to NN API delegate TEST.
  *   Add `narrow_range` attribute to QuantizeAndDequantizeV2 and V3.
  *   Added support for `tflite_convert` command line tool in 2.0.
  *   Post-training quantization tool supports quantizing weights shared by
  multiple operations. The models made with versions of this tool will use
  INT8 types for weights and will only be executable interpreters from
  this version onwards.
  *   Post-training quantization tool supports fp16 weights and GPU delegate
  acceleration for fp16.
  *   Add delegate support for `QUANTIZED_16BIT_LSTM`.
  *   Extracts `NNAPIDelegateKernel` from nnapi_delegate.cc
  
  *   TensorRT
  
  *   Add TensorFlow 2.0-compatible `TrtGraphConverterV2` API for TensorRT
  conversion. TensorRT initialization arguments are now passed wrapped in
  a named-tuple, `TrtConversionParams`, rather than as separate arguments
  as in `TrtGraphConverter`.
  *   Changed API to optimize TensorRT enginges during graph optimization.
  This is now done by calling `converter.build()` where previously
  `is_dynamic_op=False` would be set.
  *   `converter.convert()` no longer returns a `tf.function`. Now the
  function must be accessed from the saved model.
  *   The `converter.calibrate()` method has been removed. To trigger
  calibration, a `calibration_input_fn` should be provided to
  `converter.convert()`.
  
  *   Other:
  
  *   Fix accidental quadratic graph construction cost in graph-mode
  `tf.gradients()`.
  *   ResourceVariable's gather op supports batch dimensions.
  *   ResourceVariable support for `gather_nd`.

  (for num > 1)
  *   Added top-k to precision and recall to keras metrics.
  *   Add a ragged size op and register it to the op dispatcher

  *   Add `CompositeTensor` base class.
  *   Malformed gif images could result in an access out of bounds in the

  the vectorized map node.
  *   Add variant wrapper for `absl::string_view`.

1.15.0 not secure

This is the last 1.x release for TensorFlow. We do not expect to update the 1.x branch with features, although we will issue patch releases to fix vulnerabilities for at least one year.
  
  Major Features and Improvements
  * As [announced](https://groups.google.com/a/tensorflow.org/forum/!topic/developers/iRCt5m4qUz0), `tensorflow` pip package will by default include GPU support (same as `tensorflow-gpu` now) for the platforms we currently have GPU support (Linux and Windows). It will work on machines with and without Nvidia GPUs. `tensorflow-gpu` will still be available, and CPU-only packages can be downloaded at `tensorflow-cpu` for users who are concerned about package size.
  * TensorFlow 1.15 contains a complete implementation of the 2.0 API in its `compat.v2` module. It contains a copy of the 1.15 main module (without `contrib`) in the `compat.v1` module. TensorFlow 1.15 is able to emulate 2.0 behavior using the `enable_v2_behavior()` function.
  This enables writing forward compatible code: by explicitly importing either `tensorflow.compat.v1` or `tensorflow.compat.v2`, you can ensure that your code works without modifications against an installation of 1.15 or 2.0.
  * EagerTensor now supports numpy buffer interface for tensors.
  * Add toggles `tf.enable_control_flow_v2()` and `tf.disable_control_flow_v2()` for enabling/disabling v2 control flow.
  * Enable v2 control flow as part of `tf.enable_v2_behavior()` and `TF2_BEHAVIOR=1`.
  * AutoGraph translates Python control flow into TensorFlow expressions, allowing users to write regular Python inside `tf.function`-decorated functions. AutoGraph is also applied in functions used with `tf.data`, `tf.distribute` and `tf.keras` APIS.
  * Adds `enable_tensor_equality()`, which switches the behavior such that:
  * Tensors are no longer hashable.
  * Tensors can be compared with `==` and `!=`, yielding a Boolean Tensor with element-wise comparison results. This will be the default behavior in 2.0.
  
  Breaking Changes
  * Tensorflow code now produces 2 different pip packages: `tensorflow_core` containing all the code (in the future it will contain only the private implementation) and `tensorflow` which is a virtual pip package doing forwarding to `tensorflow_core` (and in the future will contain only the public API of tensorflow). We don't expect this to be breaking, unless you were importing directly from the implementation.
  * TensorFlow 1.15 is built using devtoolset7 (GCC7) on Ubuntu 16. This may lead to ABI incompatibilities with extensions built against earlier versions of TensorFlow.
  * Deprecated the use of `constraint=` and `.constraint` with ResourceVariable.
  * `tf.keras`:
  * `OMP_NUM_THREADS` is no longer used by the default Keras config. To configure the number of threads, use `tf.config.threading` APIs.
  * `tf.keras.model.save_model` and `model.save` now defaults to saving a TensorFlow SavedModel.
  * `keras.backend.resize_images` (and consequently, `keras.layers.Upsampling2D`) behavior has changed, a bug in the resizing implementation was fixed.
  * Layers now default to `float32`, and automatically cast their inputs to the layer's dtype. If you had a model that used `float64`, it will probably silently use `float32` in TensorFlow2, and a warning will be issued that starts with Layer "layer-name" is casting an input tensor from dtype float64 to the layer's dtype of float32. To fix, either set the default dtype to float64 with `tf.keras.backend.set_floatx('float64')`, or pass `dtype='float64'` to each of the Layer constructors. See `tf.keras.layers.Layer` for more information.
  * Some `tf.assert_*` methods now raise assertions at operation creation time (i.e. when this Python line executes) if the input tensors' values are known at that time, not during the session.run(). When this happens, a noop is returned and the input tensors are marked non-feedable. In other words, if they are used as keys in `feed_dict` argument to `session.run()`, an error will be raised. Also, because some assert ops don't make it into the graph, the graph structure changes. A different graph can result in different per-op random seeds when they are not given explicitly (most often).
  
  Bug Fixes and Other Changes
  * `tf.estimator`:
  * `tf.keras.estimator.model_to_estimator` now supports exporting to `tf.train.Checkpoint` format, which allows the saved checkpoints to be compatible with `model.load_weights`.
  * Fix tests in canned estimators.
  * Expose Head as public API.
  * Fixes critical bugs that help with `DenseFeatures` usability in TF2
  * `tf.data`:
  * Promoting `unbatch` from experimental to core API.
  * Adding support for datasets as inputs to `from_tensors` and `from_tensor_slices` and batching and unbatching of nested datasets.
  * `tf.keras`:
  * `tf.keras.estimator.model_to_estimator` now supports exporting to tf.train.Checkpoint format, which allows the saved checkpoints to be compatible with `model.load_weights`.
  * Saving a Keras Model using `tf.saved_model.save` now saves the list of variables, trainable variables, regularization losses, and the call function.
  * Deprecated `tf.keras.experimental.export_saved_model` and `tf.keras.experimental.function`. Please use `tf.keras.models.save_model(..., save_format='tf')` and `tf.keras.models.load_model` instead.
  * Add an `implementation=3` mode for `tf.keras.layers.LocallyConnected2D` and `tf.keras.layers.LocallyConnected1D` layers using `tf.SparseTensor` to store weights,  allowing a dramatic speedup for large sparse models.
  * Enable the Keras compile API `experimental_run_tf_function` flag by default. This flag enables single training/eval/predict execution path. With this 1. All input types are converted to `Dataset`. 2. When distribution strategy is not specified this goes through the no-op distribution strategy path. 3. Execution is wrapped in tf.function unless `run_eagerly=True` is set in compile.
  * Raise error if `batch_size` argument is used when input is dataset/generator/keras sequence.
  * `tf.lite`
  * Add `GATHER` support to NN API delegate.
  * tflite object detection script has a debug mode.
  * Add delegate support for `QUANTIZE`.
  * Added evaluation script for COCO minival.
  * Add delegate support for `QUANTIZED_16BIT_LSTM`.
  * Converts hardswish subgraphs into atomic ops.
  * Add support for defaulting the value of `cycle_length` argument of `tf.data.Dataset.interleave` to the number of schedulable CPU cores.
  * `parallel_for`: Add converter for `MatrixDiag`.
  * Add `narrow_range` attribute to `QuantizeAndDequantizeV2` and V3.
  * Added new op: `tf.strings.unsorted_segment_join`.
  * Add HW acceleration support for `topK_v2`.
  * Add new `TypeSpec` classes.
  * CloudBigtable version updated to v0.10.0.
  * Expose `Head` as public API.
  * Update docstring for gather to properly describe the non-empty `batch_dims` case.
  * Added `tf.sparse.from_dense` utility function.
  * Improved ragged tensor support in `TensorFlowTestCase`.
  * Makes the a-normal form transformation in Pyct configurable as to which nodes are converted to variables and which are not.
  * `ResizeInputTensor` now works for all delegates.
  * Add `EXPAND_DIMS` support to NN API delegate TEST:  expand_dims_test
  * `tf.cond` emits a StatelessIf op if the branch functions are stateless and do not touch any resources.
  * `tf.cond`, `tf.while` and `if` and `while` in AutoGraph now accept a nonscalar predicate if has a single element. This does not affect non-V2 control flow.
  * `tf.while_loop` emits a StatelessWhile op if the cond and body functions are stateless and do not touch any resources.
  * Refactors code in Quant8 LSTM support to reduce TFLite binary size.
  * Add support of local soft device placement for eager op.
  * Add HW acceleration support for `LogSoftMax`.
  * Added a function `nested_value_rowids` for ragged tensors.
  * Add guard to avoid acceleration of L2 Normalization with input rank != 4
  * Add `tf.math.cumulative_logsumexp operation`.
  * Add `tf.ragged.stack`.
  * Fix memory allocation problem when calling `AddNewInputConstantTensor`.
  * Delegate application failure leaves interpreter in valid state.
  * Add check for correct memory alignment to `MemoryAllocation::MemoryAllocation()`.
  * Extracts `NNAPIDelegateKernel` from nnapi_delegate.cc
  * Added support for `FusedBatchNormV3` in converter.
  * A ragged to dense op for directly calculating tensors.
  * Fix accidental quadratic graph construction cost in graph-mode `tf.gradients()`.

1.14.0 not secure

Major Features and Improvements
  
  *   This is the first 1.x release containing the compat.v2 module. This module
  is required to allow libraries to publish code which works in both 1.x and
  2.x. After this release, no backwards incompatible changes are allowed in
  the 2.0 Python API.
  *   Turn on MKL-DNN contraction kernels by default. MKL-DNN dynamically
  dispatches the best kernel implementation based on CPU vector architecture.
  To disable them, build with --define=tensorflow_mkldnn_contraction_kernel=0.
  
  Behavioral changes
  
  *   Set default loss reduction as `AUTO` for improving reliability of loss
  scaling with distribution strategy and custom training loops. `AUTO`
  indicates that the reduction option will be determined by the usage context.
  For almost all cases this defaults to `SUM_OVER_BATCH_SIZE`. When used in
  distribution strategy scope, outside of built-in training loops such as
  `tf.keras` `compile` and `fit`, we expect reduction value to be 'None' or
  'SUM'. Using other values will raise an error.
  *   Wraps losses passed to the `compile` API (strings and v1 losses) which are
  not instances of v2 `Loss` class in `LossWrapper` class. => All losses will
  now use `SUM_OVER_BATCH_SIZE` reduction as default.
  *   Disable `run_eagerly` and distribution strategy if there are symbolic
  tensors added to the model using `add_metric` or `add_loss`.
  *   tf.linspace(start, stop, num) now always uses "stop" as last value (for
  num > 1)
  *   `ResourceVariable` and `Variable` no longer accepts `constraint` in the
  constructor, nor expose it as a property.
  *   The behavior of tf.gather is now correct when axis=None and batch_dims<0.
  *   Only create a GCS directory object if the object does not already exist.
  *   In `map_vectorization` optimization, reduce the degree of parallelism in the
  vectorized map node.
  *   Bug fix: loss and gradients should now more reliably be correctly scaled
  w.r.t. the global batch size when using a tf.distribute.Strategy.
  *   Updating cosine similarity loss - removed the negate sign from cosine
  similarity.
  *   DType is no longer convertible to an int. Use dtype.as_datatype_enum instead
  of int(dtype) to get the same result.
  *   Changed default for gradient accumulation for TPU embeddings to true.
  *   Callbacks now log values in eager mode when a deferred build model is used.
  *   Transitive dependencies on :pooling_ops were removed. Some users may need to
  add explicit dependencies on :pooling_ops if they reference the operators
  from that library.
  *   tf.keras.optimizers default learning rate changes:
  *   Adadelta: 1.000 to 0.001
  *   Adagrad: 0.01 to 0.001
  *   Adamax: 0.002 to 0.001
  *   NAdam: 0.002 to 0.001
  
  Bug Fixes and Other Changes
  
  *   Documentation
  *   Deprecations and Symbol renames.
  *   Remove unused StringViewVariantWrapper
  *   Delete unused Fingerprint64Map op registration
  *   SignatureDef util functions have been deprecated.
  *   Renamed tf.image functions to remove duplicate "image" where it is
  redundant.
  *   tf.keras.experimental.export renamed to
  tf.keras.experimental.export_saved_model
  *   Standardize the LayerNormalization API by replacing the args `norm_axis`
  and `params_axis` with `axis`.
  *   Tensor::UnsafeCopyFromInternal deprecated in favor Tensor::BitcastFrom
  *   Keras & Python API
  *   Add v2 module aliases for:
  *   tf.initializers => tf.keras.initializers
  *   tf.losses => tf.keras.losses & tf.metrics => tf.keras.metrics
  *   tf.optimizers => tf.keras.optimizers
  *   Add tf.keras.layers.AbstractRNNCell as the preferred implementation of
  RNN cell for TF v2. User can use it to implement RNN cell with custom
  behavior.
  *   Adding `clear_losses` API to be able to clear losses at the end of
  forward pass in a custom training loop in eager.
  *   Add support for passing list of lists to the `metrics` param in Keras
  `compile`.
  *   Added top-k to precision and recall to keras metrics.
  *   Adding public APIs for `cumsum` and `cumprod` keras backend functions.
  *   Fix: model.add_loss(symbolic_tensor) should work in ambient eager.
  *   Add name argument to tf.string_split and tf.strings_split
  *   Minor change to SavedModels exported from Keras using
  tf.keras.experimental.export. (SignatureDef key for evaluation mode is
  now "eval" instead of "test"). This will be reverted back to "test" in
  the near future.
  *   Updates binary cross entropy logic in Keras when input is probabilities.
  Instead of converting probabilities to logits, we are using the cross
  entropy formula for probabilities.
  *   Raw TensorFlow functions can now be used in conjunction with the Keras
  Functional API during model creation. This obviates the need for users
  to create Lambda layers in most cases when using the Functional API.
  Like Lambda layers, TensorFlow functions that result in Variable
  creation or assign ops are not supported.
  *   Keras training and validation curves are shown on the same plot.
  *   Introduce `dynamic` constructor argument in Layer and Model, which
  should be set to True when using imperative control flow in the `call`
  method.
  *   Removing of dtype in the constructor of initializers and partition_info
  in call.
  *   New ops and improved op functionality
  *   Add OpKernels for some stateless maps
  *   Add v2 APIs for AUCCurve and AUCSummationMethod
  enums. tf-metrics-convergence
  *   Add tf.math.nextafter op.
  *   Add CompositeTensor base class.
  *   Add tf.linalg.tridiagonal_solve op.
  *   Add opkernel templates for common table operations.
  *   Added support for TFLite in TensorFlow 2.0.
  *   Adds summary trace API for collecting graph and profile information.
  *   Add batch_dims argument to tf.gather.
  *   Add support for `add_metric` in the graph function mode.
  *   Add C++ Gradient for BatchMatMulV2.
  *   Added tf.random.binomial
  *   Added gradient for SparseToDense op.
  *   Add legacy string flat hash map op kernels
  *   Add a ragged size op and register it to the op dispatcher
  *   Add broadcasting support to tf.matmul.
  *   Add ellipsis (...) support for tf.einsum()
  *   Added LinearOperator.adjoint and LinearOperator.H (alias).
  *   Added GPU implementation of tf.linalg.tridiagonal_solve.
  *   Added strings.byte_split
  *   Add RaggedTensor.placeholder()
  *   Add a new "result_type" parameter to tf.strings.split
  *   `add_update` can now be passed a zero-arg callable in order to support
  turning off the update when setting `trainable=False` on a Layer of a
  Model compiled with `run_eagerly=True`.
  *   Add variant wrapper for absl::string_view
  *   Add expand_composites argument to all nest.* methods.
  *   Add pfor converter for Squeeze.
  *   Bug fix for tf.tile gradient
  *   Expose CriticalSection in core as tf.CriticalSection.
  *   Update Fingerprint64Map to use aliases
  *   ResourceVariable support for gather_nd.
  *   ResourceVariable's gather op supports batch dimensions.
  *   Variadic reduce is supported on CPU
  *   Extend tf.function with basic support for CompositeTensors arguments
  (such as SparseTensor and RaggedTensor).
  *   Add templates and interfaces for creating lookup tables
  *   Post-training quantization tool supports quantizing weights shared by
  multiple operations. The models made with versions of this tool will use
  INT8 types for weights and will only be executable interpreters from
  this version onwards.
  *   Malformed gif images could result in an access out of bounds in the
  color palette of the frame. This has been fixed now
  *   image.resize now considers proper pixel centers and has new kernels
  (incl. anti-aliasing).
  *   Performance
  *   Turn on MKL-DNN contraction kernels by default. MKL-DNN dynamically
  dispatches the best kernel implementation based on CPU vector
  architecture. To disable them, build with
  --define=tensorflow_mkldnn_contraction_kernel=0.
  *   Support for multi-host ncclAllReduce in Distribution Strategy.
  *   Expose a flag that allows the number of threads to vary across Python
  benchmarks.
  *   TensorFlow 2.0 Development
  *   Add v2 sparse categorical crossentropy metric.
  *   Allow non-Tensors through v2 losses.
  *   Add UnifiedGRU as the new GRU implementation for tf2.0. Change the
  default recurrent activation function for GRU from 'hard_sigmoid' to
  'sigmoid', and 'reset_after' to True in 2.0. Historically recurrent
  activation is 'hard_sigmoid' since it is fast than 'sigmoid'. With new
  unified backend between CPU and GPU mode, since the CuDNN kernel is
  using sigmoid, we change the default for CPU mode to sigmoid as well.
  With that, the default GRU will be compatible with both CPU and GPU
  kernel. This will enable user with GPU to use CuDNN kernel by default
  and get a 10x performance boost in training. Note that this is
  checkpoint breaking change. If user want to use their 1.x pre-trained
  checkpoint, please construct the layer with
  GRU(recurrent_activation='hard_sigmoid', reset_after=False) to fallback
  to 1.x behavior.
  *   TF 2.0 - Update metric name to always reflect what the user has given in
  compile. Affects following cases 1. When name is given as
  'accuracy'/'crossentropy' 2. When an aliased function name is used eg.
  'mse' 3. Removing the `weighted` prefix from weighted metric names.
  *   Begin adding Go wrapper for C Eager API
  *   image.resize in 2.0 now supports gradients for the new resize kernels.
  *   removed tf.string_split from v2 API
  *   Expose tf.contrib.proto.* ops in tf.io (they will exist in TF2)
  *   "Updates the TFLiteConverter API in 2.0. Changes from_concrete_function
  to from_concrete_functions."
  *   Enable tf.distribute.experimental.MultiWorkerMirroredStrategy working in
  eager mode.
  *   Support both binary and -1/1 label input in v2 hinge and squared hinge
  losses.
  *   TensorFlow Lite
  *   "Adds support for tflite_convert in 2.0."
  *   "Remove lite.OpHint, lite.experimental, and lite.constant from 2.0 API."
  *   tf.contrib
  *   Added Neural Turing Implementation as described in
  https://arxiv.org/abs/1807.08518.
  *   Remove tf.contrib.timeseries dependency on TF distributions.
  *   tf.data
  *   Add num_parallel_reads and passing in a Dataset containing filenames
  into TextLineDataset and FixedLengthRecordDataset
  *   Going forward we operate in TF 2.0, this change is part of the effort to
  slowly converting XYZDataset to DatasetV2 type which is the official
  version going to be used in TF 2.0 and motivated by some compatibility
  issue found, _BigtableXYZDataset (of type DatasetV2) does not implement
  the _as_variant_tensor() of DatasetV1, when moving contrib.bigtable to
  tensorflow_io. Converting into DatasetV2 removes the overheads to
  maintain V1 while we are moving into TF 2.0.
  *   Add dataset ops to the graph (or create kernels in Eager execution)
  during the python Dataset object creation instead doing it during
  Iterator creation time.
  *   Add support for TensorArrays to tf.data Dataset.
  *   Switching tf.data functions to use `defun`, providing an escape hatch to
  continue using the legacy `Defun`.
  *   Toolchains
  *   CUDNN_INSTALL_PATH, TENSORRT_INSTALL_PATH, NCCL_INSTALL_PATH,
  NCCL_HDR_PATH are deprecated. Use TF_CUDA_PATHS instead which supports a
  comma-separated list of base paths that are searched to find CUDA
  libraries and headers.
  *   TF code now resides in `tensorflow_core` and `tensorflow` is just a
  virtual pip package. No code changes are needed for projects using
  TensorFlow, the change is transparent
  *   XLA
  *   XLA HLO graphs can be inspected with interactive_graphviz tool now.
  *   Estimator
  *   Use tf.compat.v1.estimator.inputs instead of tf.estimator.inputs
  *   Replace contrib references with tf.estimator.experimental.* for apis in
  early_stopping.py

1.13.0

Major Features and Improvements
  
  * TensorFlow Lite has moved from contrib to core. This means that Python modules are under `tf.lite` and source code is now under `tensorflow/lite` rather than `tensorflow/contrib/lite`.
  * TensorFlow GPU binaries are now built against CUDA 10 and TensorRT 5.0.
  * Support for Python3.7 on all operating systems.
  * Moved NCCL to core.
  
  Behavioral changes
  
  * Disallow conversion of python floating types to uint32/64 (matching behavior of other integer types) in `tf.constant`.
  * Make the `gain` argument of convolutional orthogonal initializers (`convolutional_delta_orthogonal`, `convolutional_orthogonal_1D`, `convolutional_orthogonal_2D`, `convolutional_orthogonal_3D`) have consistent behavior with the `tf.initializers.orthogonal` initializer, i.e. scale the output l2-norm by `gain` and NOT by `sqrt(gain)`. (Note that these functions are currently in `tf.contrib` which is not guaranteed backward compatible).
  
  Bug Fixes and Other Changes
  
  *   Documentation
  *   Update the doc with the details about the rounding mode used in
  quantize_and_dequantize_v2.
  *   Clarify that tensorflow::port::InitMain() _should_ be called before
  using the TensorFlow library. Programs failing to do this are not
  portable to all platforms.
  *   Deprecations and Symbol renames.
  *   Removing deprecations for the following endpoints: `tf.acos`,
  `tf.acosh`, `tf.add`, `tf.as_string`, `tf.asin`, `tf.asinh`, `tf.atan`,
  `tf.atan2`, `tf.atanh`, `tf.cos`, `tf.cosh`, `tf.equal`, `tf.exp`,
  `tf.floor`, `tf.greater`, `tf.greater_equal`, `tf.less`,
  `tf.less_equal`, `tf.log`, `tf.logp1`, `tf.logical_and`,
  `tf.logical_not`, `tf.logical_or`, `tf.maximum`, `tf.minimum`,
  `tf.not_equal`, `tf.sin`, `tf.sinh`, `tf.tan`
  *   Deprecate `tf.data.Dataset.shard`.
  *   Deprecate `saved_model.loader.load` which is replaced by
  `saved_model.load` and `saved_model.main_op`, which will be replaced by
  `saved_model.main_op` in V2.
  *   Deprecate tf.QUANTIZED_DTYPES. The official new symbol is
  tf.dtypes.QUANTIZED_DTYPES.
  *   Update sklearn imports for deprecated packages.
  *   Deprecate `Variable.count_up_to` and `tf.count_up_to` in favor of
  `Dataset.range`.
  *   Export `confusion_matrix` op as `tf.math.confusion_matrix` instead of
  `tf.train.confusion_matrix`.
  *   Add `tf.dtypes.` endpoint for every constant in dtypes.py. Moving
  endpoints in versions.py to corresponding endpoints in `tf.sysconfig.`
  and `tf.version.`. Moving all constants under `tf.saved_model`
  submodules to `tf.saved_model` module. New endpoints are added in V1 and
  V2 but existing endpoint removals are only applied in V2.
  *   Deprecates behavior where device assignment overrides collocation
  constraints inside a collocation context manager.
  *   Keras & Python API
  *   Add to Keras functionality analogous to
  `tf.register_tensor_conversion_function`.
  *   Subclassed Keras models can now be saved through
  `tf.contrib.saved_model.save_keras_model`.
  *   `LinearOperator.matmul` now returns a new `LinearOperator`.
  *   New ops and improved op functionality
  *   Add a Nearest Neighbor Resize op.
  *   Add an `ignore_unknown` argument to `parse_values` which suppresses
  ValueError for unknown hyperparameter types. Such * Add
  `tf.linalg.matvec` convenience function.
  *   `tf.einsum()`raises `ValueError` for unsupported equations like
  `"ii->"`.
  *   Add DCT-I and IDCT-I in `tf.signal.dct` and `tf.signal.idct`.
  *   Add LU decomposition op.
  *   Add quantile loss to gradient boosted trees in estimator.
  *   Add `round_mode` to `QuantizeAndDequantizeV2` op to select rounding
  algorithm.
  *   Add `unicode_encode`, `unicode_decode`, `unicode_decode_with_offsets`,
  `unicode_split`, `unicode_split_with_offset`, and `unicode_transcode`
  ops. Amongst other things, this Op adds the ability to encode, decode,
  and transcode a variety of input text encoding formats into the main
  Unicode encodings (UTF-8, UTF-16-BE, UTF-32-BE)
  *   Add "unit" attribute to the substr op, which allows obtaining the
  substring of a string containing unicode characters.
  *   Broadcasting support for Ragged Tensors.
  *   `SpaceToDepth` supports uint8 data type.
  *   Support multi-label quantile regression in estimator.
  *   We now use "div" as the default partition_strategy in
  `tf.nn.safe_embedding_lookup_sparse`, `tf.nn.sampled_softmax` and
  `tf.nn.nce_loss`. hyperparameter are ignored.
  *   Performance
  *   Improve performance of GPU cumsum/cumprod by up to 300x.
  *   Added support for weight decay in most TPU embedding optimizers,
  including AdamW and MomentumW.
  *   TensorFlow 2.0 Development
  *   Add a command line tool to convert to TF2.0, tf_upgrade_v2
  *   Merge `tf.spectral` into `tf.signal` for TensorFlow 2.0.
  *   Change the default recurrent activation function for LSTM from
  'hard_sigmoid' to 'sigmoid' in 2.0. Historically recurrent activation is
  'hard_sigmoid' since it is fast than 'sigmoid'. With new unified backend
  between CPU and GPU mode, since the CuDNN kernel is using sigmoid, we
  change the default for CPU mode to sigmoid as well. With that, the
  default LSTM will be compatible with both CPU and GPU kernel. This will
  enable user with GPU to use CuDNN kernel by default and get a 10x
  performance boost in training. Note that this is checkpoint breaking
  change. If user want to use their 1.x pre-trained checkpoint, please
  construct the layer with LSTM(recurrent_activation='hard_sigmoid') to
  fallback to 1.x behavior.
  *   TensorFlow Lite
  *   Move from `tensorflow/contrib/lite` to `tensorflow/lite`.
  *   Add experimental Java API for injecting TensorFlow Lite delegates
  *   Add support for strings in TensorFlow Lite Java API.
  *   `tf.contrib`:
  *   Add Apache Ignite Filesystem plugin to support accessing Apache IGFS.
  *   Dropout now takes `rate` argument, `keep_prob` is deprecated.
  *   Estimator occurrences references `tf.contrib.estimator` were changed to
  `tf.estimator`:
  *   `tf.contrib.estimator.BaselineEstimator` with
  `tf.estimator.BaselineEstimator`
  *   `tf.contrib.estimator.DNNLinearCombinedEstimator` with
  `tf.estimator.DNNLinearCombinedEstimator`
  *   `tf.contrib.estimator.DNNEstimator` with `tf.estimator.DNNEstimator`
  *   `tf.contrib.estimator.LinearEstimator` with
  `tf.estimator.LinearEstimator`
  *   `tf.contrib.estimator.InMemoryEvaluatorHook` and
  tf.estimator.experimental.InMemoryEvaluatorHook`.
  *   `tf.contrib.estimator.make_stop_at_checkpoint_step_hook` with
  `tf.estimator.experimental.make_stop_at_checkpoint_step_hook`.
  *   Expose `tf.distribute.Strategy as the new name for
  tf.contrib.distribute.DistributionStrategy.
  *   Migrate linear optimizer from contrib to core.
  *   Move `tf.contrib.signal` to `tf.signal` (preserving aliases in
  tf.contrib.signal).
  *   Users of `tf.contrib.estimator.export_all_saved_models` and related
  should switch to
  `tf.estimator.Estimator.experimental_export_all_saved_models`.
  *   tf.data:
  *   Add `tf.data.experimental.StatsOptions()`, to configure options to
  collect statistics from `tf.data.Dataset` pipeline using
  `StatsAggregator`. Add nested option, `experimental_stats` (which takes
  a `tf.data.experimen tal.StatsOptions` object), to `tf.data.Options`.
  Deprecates `tf.data.experimental.set_stats_agregator`.
  *   Performance optimizations:
  *   Add `tf.data.experimental.OptimizationOptions()`, to configure options
  to enable `tf.data` performance optimizations. Add nested option,
  `experimental_optimization` (which takes a
  `tf.data.experimental.OptimizationOptions` object), to
  `tf.data.Options`. Remove performance optimization options from
  `tf.data.Options`, and add them under
  `tf.data.experimental.OptimizationOptions` instead.
  *   Enable `map_and_batch_fusion` and `noop_elimination` optimizations by
  default. They can be disabled by configuring
  `tf.data.experimental.OptimizationOptions` to set `map_and_batch =
  False` or `noop_elimination = False` respectively. To disable all
  default optimizations, set `apply_default_optimizations = False`.
  *   Support parallel map in `map_and_filter_fusion`.
  *   Disable static optimizations for input pipelines that use non-resource
  `tf.Variable`s.
  *   Add NUMA-aware MapAndBatch dataset.
  *   Deprecate `tf.data.Dataset.make_one_shot_iterator()` in V1, removed it
  from V2, and added tf.compat.v1.data.make_one_shot_iterator()`.
  *   Deprecate `tf.data.Dataset.make_initializable_iterator()` in V1, removed
  it from V2, and added `tf.compat.v1.data.make_initializable_iterator()`.
  *   Enable nested dataset support in core `tf.data` transformations.
  *   For `tf.data.Dataset` implementers: Added
  `tf.data.Dataset._element_structured property` to replace
  `Dataset.output_{types,shapes,classes}`.
  *   Make `num_parallel_calls` of `tf.data.Dataset.interleave` and
  `tf.data.Dataset.map` work in Eager mode.
  *   Toolchains
  *   Fixed OpenSSL compatibility by avoiding `EVP_MD_CTX_destroy`.
  *   Added bounds checking to printing deprecation warnings.
  *   Upgraded CUDA dependency to 10.0
  *   To build with Android NDK r14b, add "include <linux/compiler.h>" to
  android-ndk-r14b/platforms/android-14/arch-*/usr/include/linux/futex.h
  *   Removed `:android_tensorflow_lib_selective_registration*` targets, use
  `:android_tensorflow_lib_lite*` targets instead.
  *   XLA
  *   Move `RoundToEven` function to xla/client/lib/math.h.
  *   A new environment variable `TF_XLA_DEBUG_OPTIONS_PASSTHROUGH` set to "1"
  or "true" allows the debug options passed within an XRTCompile op to be
  passed directly to the XLA compilation backend. If such variable is not
  set (service side), only a restricted set will be passed through.
  *   Allow the XRTCompile op to return the ProgramShape resulted form the XLA
  compilation as a second return argument.
  *   XLA HLO graphs can now be rendered as SVG/HTML.
  *   Estimator
  *   Replace all occurrences of `tf.contrib.estimator.BaselineEstimator` with
  `tf.estimator.BaselineEstimator`
  *   Replace all occurrences of
  `tf.contrib.estimator.DNNLinearCombinedEstimator` with
  `tf.estimator.DNNLinearCombinedEstimator`
  *   Replace all occurrences of `tf.contrib.estimator.DNNEstimator` with
  `tf.estimator.DNNEstimator`
  *   Replace all occurrences of `tf.contrib.estimator.LinearEstimator` with
  `tf.estimator.LinearEstimator`
  *   Users of `tf.contrib.estimator.export_all_saved_models` and related
  should switch to
  `tf.estimator.Estimator.experimental_export_all_saved_models`.
  *   Update `regression_head` to the new Head API for Canned Estimator V2.
  *   Switch `multi_class_head` to Head API for Canned Estimator V2.
  *   Replace all occurrences of `tf.contrib.estimator.InMemoryEvaluatorHook`
  and `tf.contrib.estimator.make_stop_at_checkpoint_step_hook` with
  `tf.estimator.experimental.InMemoryEvaluatorHook` and
  `tf.estimator.experimental.make_stop_at_checkpoint_step_hook`
  *   Migrate linear optimizer from contrib to core.

1.12.3 not secure

Bug Fixes and Other Changes
  
  *   Updates `png_archive` dependency to 1.6.37 to not be affected by
  CVE-2019-7317, CVE-2018-13785, and CVE-2018-14048.
  *   Updates `sqlite` dependency to 3.28.0 to not be affected by CVE-2018-20506,
  CVE-2018-20346, and CVE-2018-20505.

1.12.2 not secure

Bug Fixes and Other Changes
  
  *   Fixes a potential security vulnerability where carefully crafted GIF images
  can produce a null pointer dereference during decoding.

1.12.0 not secure

Major Features and Improvements
  
  *   Keras models can now be directly exported to the SavedModel
  format(`tf.contrib.saved_model.save_keras_model()`) and used with Tensorflow
  Serving.
  *   Keras models now support evaluating with a `tf.data.Dataset`.
  *   TensorFlow binaries are built with XLA support linked in by default.
  *   Ignite Dataset added to contrib/ignite that allows to work with Apache
  Ignite.
  
  Bug Fixes and Other Changes
  
  *   tf.data:
  *   tf.data users can now represent, get, and set options of TensorFlow
  input pipelines using `tf.data.Options()`, `tf.data.Dataset.options()`,
  and `tf.data.Dataset.with_options()` respectively.
  *   New `tf.data.Dataset.reduce()` API allows users to reduce a finite
  dataset to a single element using a user-provided reduce function.
  *   New `tf.data.Dataset.window()` API allows users to create finite windows
  of input dataset; when combined with the `tf.data.Dataset.reduce()` API,
  this allows users to implement customized batching.
  *   All C++ code moves to the `tensorflow::data` namespace.
  *   Add support for `num_parallel_calls` to `tf.data.Dataset.interleave`.
  *   `tf.contrib`:
  *   Remove `tf.contrib.linalg`. `tf.linalg` should be used instead.
  *   Replace any calls to `tf.contrib.get_signature_def_by_key(metagraph_def,
  signature_def_key)` with
  `meta_graph_def.signature_def[signature_def_key]`. Catching a ValueError
  exception thrown by `tf.contrib.get_signature_def_by_key` should be
  replaced by catching a KeyError exception.
  *   `tf.contrib.data`
  *   Deprecate, and replace by tf.data.experimental.
  *   Other:
  *   Instead of jemalloc, revert back to using system malloc since it
  simplifies build and has comparable performance.
  *   Remove integer types from `tf.nn.softplus` and `tf.nn.softsign` OpDefs.
  This is a bugfix; these ops were never meant to support integers.
  *   Allow subslicing Tensors with a single dimension.
  *   Add option to calculate string length in Unicode characters.
  *   Add functionality to SubSlice a tensor.
  *   Add searchsorted (ie lower/upper_bound) op.
  *   Add model explainability to Boosted Trees.
  *   Support negative positions for tf.substr.
  *   There was previously a bug in the bijector_impl where the
  _reduce_jacobian_det_over_event does not handle scalar ILDJ
  implementations properly.
  *   In tf eager execution, allow re-entering a GradientTape context.
  *   Add tf_api_version flag. If --define=tf_api_version=2 flag is passed in,
  then bazel will build TensorFlow API version 2.0. Note that TensorFlow
  2.0 is under active development and has no guarantees at this point.
  *   Add additional compression options to TfRecordWriter.
  *   Performance improvements for regex full match operations.
  *   Replace tf.GraphKeys.VARIABLES with `tf.GraphKeys.GLOBAL_VARIABLES`.
  *   Remove unused dynamic learning rate support.

1.11.0 not secure

Major Features and Improvements
  
  *   Nvidia GPU:
  *   Prebuilt binaries are now (as of TensorFlow 1.11) built against cuDNN
  7.2 and TensorRT 4. See updated install guides:
  [Installing TensorFlow on Ubuntu](https://www.tensorflow.org/install/install_linuxtensorflow_gpu_support)
  *   Google Cloud TPU:
  *   Experimental tf.data integration for Keras on Google Cloud TPUs.
  *   Experimental / preview support for eager execution on Google Cloud TPUs.
  *   DistributionStrategy:
  *   Add multi-GPU DistributionStrategy support in tf.keras. Users can now
  use `fit`, `evaluate` and `predict` to distribute their model on
  multiple GPUs.
  *   Add multi-worker DistributionStrategy and standalone client support in
  Estimator. See
  [README](https://github.com/tensorflow/tensorflow/tree/master/tensorflow/contrib/distribute)
  for more details.
  *   Add C, C++, and Python functions for querying kernels.
  
  Breaking Changes
  
  * Keras:
  * The default values for tf.keras `RandomUniform`, `RandomNormal`, and `TruncatedNormal` initializers have been changed to match those in external Keras.
  * Breaking change: `model.get_config()` on a Sequential model now returns a config dictionary (consistent with other Model instances) instead of a list of configs for the underlying layers.
  
  Bug Fixes and Other Changes
  
  *   C++:
  *   Changed the signature of SessionFactory::NewSession so that it can
  return a meaningful error message on failure.
  *   tf.data:
  *   Remove `num_parallel_parser_calls` argument from
  `tf.contrib.data.make_csv_dataset()`. [tf.data] Remove
  `num_parallel_parser_calls` argument from
  `tf.contrib.data.make_csv_dataset()`.
  *   `tf.data.Dataset.list_files()` raises an exception at initialization
  time if the argument matches no files.
  *   Renamed BigTable class to BigtableTable for clarity
  *   Document use of the Cloud Bigtable API
  *   Add `tf.contrib.data.reduce_dataset` which can be used to reduce a
  dataset to a single element.
  *   Generalization of `tf.contrib.data.sliding_window_batch`.
  *   INC:
  *   Runtime improvements to triangular solve.
  *   `tf.contrib`:
  *   Add an `implementation` argument to `tf.keras.layers.LocallyConnected2D`
  and `tf.keras.layers.LocallyConnected1D`. The new mode
  (`implementation=2`) performs forward pass as a single dense matrix
  multiplication, allowing dramatic speedups in certain scenarios (but
  worse performance in others - see docstring). The option also allows to
  use `padding=same`.
  *   Add documentation clarifying the differences between tf.fill and
  tf.constant.
  *   Add experimental IndexedDatasets.
  *   Add selective registration target using the lite proto runtime.
  *   Add simple Tensor and DataType classes to TensorFlow Lite Java
  *   Add support for bitcasting to/from uint32 and uint64.
  *   Added a subclass of Estimator that can be created from a SavedModel
  (SavedModelEstimator).
  *   Adds leaf index modes as an argument.
  *   Allow a different output shape from the input in
  tf.contrib.image.transform.
  *   Change the state_size order of the StackedRNNCell to be natural order.
  To keep the existing behavior, user can add reverse_state_order=True
  when constructing the StackedRNNCells.
  *   Deprecate self.test_session() in favor of self.session() or
  self.cached_session().
  *   Directly import tensor.proto.h (the transitive import will be removed
  from tensor.h soon).
  *   Estimator.train() now supports tf.contrib.summary.\* summaries out of
  the box; each call to .train() will now create a separate tfevents file
  rather than re-using a shared one.
  *   Fix FTRL L2-shrinkage behavior: the gradient from the L2 shrinkage term
  should not end up in the accumulator.
  *   Fix toco compilation/execution on Windows.
  *   GoogleZoneProvider class added to detect which Google Cloud Engine zone
  tensorflow is running in.
  *   It is now safe to call any of the C API's TF_Delete\* functions on
  nullptr.
  *   Log some errors on Android to logcat.
  *   Match FakeQuant numerics in TFLite to improve accuracy of TFLite
  quantized inference models.
  *   Optional bucket location check for the GCS Filesystem.
  *   Performance enhancements for StringSplitOp & StringSplitV2Op.
  *   Performance improvements for regex replace operations.
  *   TFRecordWriter now raises an error if .write() fails.
  *   TPU: More helpful error messages in TPUClusterResolvers.
  *   The legacy_init_op argument to SavedModelBuilder methods for adding
  MetaGraphs has been deprecated. Please use the equivalent main_op
  argument instead. As part of this, we now explicitly check for a single
  main_op or legacy_init_op at the time of SavedModel building, whereas
  the check on main_op was previously only done at load time.
  *   The protocol used for Estimator training is now configurable in
  RunConfig.
  *   Triangular solve performance improvements.
  *   Unify RNN cell interface between TF and Keras. Add new
  get_initial_state() to Keras and TF RNN cell, which will use to replace
  the existing zero_state() method.
  *   Update initialization of variables in Keras.
  *   Updates to "constrained_optimization" in tensorflow/contrib.
  *   boosted trees: adding pruning mode.
  *   tf.train.Checkpoint does not delete old checkpoints by default.
  *   tfdbg: Limit the total disk space occupied by dumped tensor data to 100
  GBytes. Add environment variable `TFDBG_DISK_BYTES_LIMIT` to allow
  adjustment of this upper limit.

1.10.1 not secure

Bug Fixes and Other Changes
  
  * `tf.keras`:
  * Fixing keras on Cloud TPUs. No new binaries will be built for Windows.

1.10.0 not secure

Major Features And Improvements
  
  * The `tf.lite` runtime now supports `complex64`.
  * Initial [Google Cloud Bigtable integration](https://github.com/tensorflow/tensorflow/tree/r1.10/tensorflow/contrib/bigtable) for `tf.data`.
  * Improved local run behavior in `tf.estimator.train_and_evaluate` which does not reload checkpoints for evaluation.
  * `RunConfig` now sets device_filters to restrict how workers and PS can communicate. This can speed up training and ensure clean shutdowns in some situations. But if you have jobs that require communication between workers, you will have to set custom session_options in your `RunConfig`.
  * Moved Distributions and Bijectors from `tf.contrib.distributions` to [Tensorflow Probability (TFP)](https://github.com/tensorflow/probability). `tf.contrib.distributions` is now deprecated and will be removed by the end of 2018.
  * Adding new endpoints for existing tensorflow symbols. These endpoints are going to be the preferred endpoints going forward and may replace some of the existing endpoints in the future. See below for the complete list. New symbols have been added to the following modules: [`tf.debugging`](https://www.tensorflow.org/versions/master/api_docs/python/tf/debugging), [`tf.dtypes`](https://www.tensorflow.org/versions/master/api_docs/python/tf/dtypes), [`tf.image`](https://www.tensorflow.org/versions/master/api_docs/python/tf/image), [`tf.io`](https://www.tensorflow.org/versions/master/api_docs/python/tf/io), [`tf.linalg`](https://www.tensorflow.org/versions/master/api_docs/python/tf/linalg), [`tf.manip`](https://www.tensorflow.org/versions/master/api_docs/python/tf/manip), [`tf.math`](https://www.tensorflow.org/versions/master/api_docs/python/tf/math), [`tf.quantization`](https://www.tensorflow.org/versions/master/api_docs/python/tf/quantization), [`tf.strings`](https://www.tensorflow.org/versions/master/api_docs/python/tf/strings)
  
  Breaking Changes
  
  * Prebuilt binaries are now (as of TensorFlow 1.10) built against NCCL 2.2 and no longer include NCCL in the binary install. TensorFlow usage with multiple GPUs and NCCL requires upgrade to [NCCL 2.2](https://developer.nvidia.com/nccl). See updated install guides: [TensorFlow GPU support](https://www.tensorflow.org/install/gpu) and [Build TensorFlow from source](https://www.tensorflow.org/install/source).
  * Starting from TensorFlow 1.11, Windows builds will use Bazel. Therefore, we will drop official support for cmake.
  
  Bug Fixes and Other Changes
  
  * `tf.data`:
  * `tf.contrib.data.group_by_reducer()` is now available via the public API.
  * `tf.contrib.data.choose_from_datasets()` is now available via the public API.
  * Adding `drop_remainder` argument to `tf.data.Dataset.batch()` and `tf.data.Dataset.padded_batch()`, deprecating `tf.contrib.data.batch_and_drop_remainder()` and `tf.contrib.data.padded_batch_and_drop_remainder()`.
  * `tf.estimator`:
  * `Estimator`s now use custom savers included in `EstimatorSpec` scaffolds for saving SavedModels during export.
  * `EstimatorSpec` will now add a default prediction output for export if no `export_output` is provided, eliminating the need to explicitly include a `PredictOutput` object in the `model_fn` for simple use-cases.
  * Support sparse_combiner in canned Linear Estimators.
  * Added batch normalization to `DNNClassifier`, `DNNRegressor`, and `DNNEstimator`.
  * Adding ranking support for boosted trees.
  * Adding center bias option for boosted trees.
  * Add `synchronization` and `aggregation` args to get_variable(). These args will be used for distributed variables.
  * Add `synchronization` and `aggregation` args to the layer `add_weight()` API. These args will be used for distributed variables.
  * `tf.losses.*` do not add to the global collection when executing eagerly (to avoid leaking memory).
  * Support different summary and checkpoint directories in `tf.train.MonitoredTrainingSession()`.
  * Added IndRNN, IndyGRU, and IndyLSTM cells to `tf.contrib.rnn`.
  * Add safe static factory functions for SparseTensor and convert all CHECKs to DCHECKs. Using the constructor directly is unsafe and deprecated.
  * Make the Bigtable client connection pool configurable & increase the default  of connections for performance.
  * Added derivative of `tf.random_gamma` with respect to the alpha parameter.
  * Added derivative of `tf.igamma(a, x)` and `tf.igammac(a, x)` with respect to a.
  * Modified Bessel functions of order zero and one.
  * Add FillTriangular Bijector to create triangular matrices.
  * Added support for Type III DCT, and `tf.spectral.idct(type=2|3)`.
  * Correctly handle CuDNN RNN weight loaded when nest in `TimeDistributed`.
  * Adding per-element weight support for `WALSComputePartialLhsAndRhsOp`.
  * ZerosLike and OnesLike ops treated as constants by Graph Transform Tool.
  * Gamma distribution and the derived distributions (Beta, Dirichlet, Student's t, inverse Gamma) now fully reparameterized.
  * Java: Experimental wrapper classes to make graph generation easier. Thanks karllessard and kbsriram
  * Build & link in secure gRPC components (switch from the insecure grpc dependency to secure grpc dependency).
  * Adding new endpoints for existing tensorflow symbols. These endpoints are going to be the preferred endpoints going forward and may replace some of the existing endpoints in the future. List of new endpoints:
  * New endpoints in `tf.image` namespace: `tf.image.extract_image_patches`
  * New endpoints in `tf.debugging` namespace: `tf.debugging.check_numerics`, `tf.debugging.is_finite`, `tf.debugging.is_inf`, `tf.debugging.is_nan`.

1.9.0 not secure

Major Features And Improvements
  * Updated docs for `tf.keras`: New Keras-based [get started](http://tensorflow.org/versions/r1.9/get_started),
  and [programmers guide page](http://tensorflow.org/versions/r1.9/programmers_guide/keras).
  * Update `tf.keras` to the Keras 2.1.6 API.
  * Added [`tf.keras.layers.CuDNNGRU`](https://www.tensorflow.org/versions/r1.9/api_docs/python/tf/keras/layers/CuDNNGRU) and [`tf.keras.layers.CuDNNLSTM`](https://www.tensorflow.org/versions/r1.9/api_docs/python/tf/keras/layers/CuDNNLSTM) layers. [Try it](https://colab.sandbox.google.com/github/tensorflow/tensorflow/blob/master/tensorflow/contrib/eager/python/examples/nmt_with_attention/nmt_with_attention.ipynb?linkId=53292082).
  * Adding support of core [feature columns](https://www.tensorflow.org/get_started/feature_columns) and [losses](https://www.tensorflow.org/api_docs/python/tf/losses) to [gradient boosted trees estimators](https://github.com/tensorflow/models/tree/master/official/r1/boosted_trees).
  * The [python interface](https://www.tensorflow.org/versions/r1.9/api_docs/python/tf/lite)
  for the [TFLite Optimizing Converter](https://github.com/tensorflow/tensorflow/blob/master/tensorflow/lite/toco/README.md)
  has been expanded, and the command line interface (AKA: `toco`, `tflite_convert`) is once again
  included in the standard `pip` installation.
  * Improved data-loading and text processing with:
  * [`tf.decode_compressed`](https://www.tensorflow.org/versions/r1.9/api_docs/python/tf/decode_compressed)
  * [`tf.string_strip`](https://www.tensorflow.org/versions/r1.9/api_docs/python/tf/string_strip)
  * [`tf.strings.regex_full_match`](https://www.tensorflow.org/versions/r1.9/api_docs/python/tf/strings/regex_full_match)

  * [`tf.contrib.estimator.RNNEstimator`](https://www.tensorflow.org/versions/r1.9/api_docs/python/tf/contrib/estimator/RNNClassifier)
  * The [distributions.Bijector](https://www.tensorflow.org/versions/r1.9/api_docs/python/tf/contrib/distributions/bijectors/Bijector)
  API supports broadcasting for Bijectors with new API changes.
  
  Breaking Changes
  * If you're opening empty variable scopes; replace `variable_scope('', ...)` by
  `variable_scope(tf.get_variable_scope(), ...)`.
  * Headers used for building custom ops have been moved from site-packages/external into site-packages/tensorflow/include/external.
  
  Bug Fixes and Other Changes
  
  *   `tfe.Network` is deprecated. Please inherit from `tf.keras.Model`.
  *   Layered variable names have changed in the following conditions:
  *   Using `tf.keras.layers` with custom variable scopes.
  *   Using `tf.layers` in a subclassed `tf.keras.Model` class. See
  [here](https://www.tensorflow.org/versions/r1.9/api_docs/python/tf/layers)
  for more details
  *   `tf.data`:
  *   `Dataset.from_generator()` now accepts an `args` list, in order to
  create nested generators.
  *   `Dataset.list_files()` now produces deterministic results when
  `shuffle=False` or a `seed` is passed.
  *   `tf.contrib.data.sample_from_datasets()` and
  `tf.contrib.data.choose_from_datasets()` make it easier to sample or
  deterministically choose elements from multiple datasets.
  *   `tf.contrib.data.make_csv_dataset()` now supports line breaks in quoted
  strings, and two infrequently used arguments removed.
  *   (C++) `DatasetBase::DebugString()` is now `const`.
  *   (C++) `DatasetBase::MakeIterator()` has been renamed to
  `DatasetBase::MakeIteratorInternal()`.
  *   (C++) `IteratorBase::Initialize()` method was added to support raising
  errors during iterator construction.
  *   Eager Execution:
  *   Added the ability to pause recording operations for gradient computation
  via `tf.GradientTape.stop_recording`.
  *   Updated documentation, introductory notebooks.
  *   `tf.keras`:
  *   Move Keras code out of _impl folder and remove API files.
  *   `tf.keras.Model.save_weights` now saves in TensorFlow format by default.
  *   Enable dataset iterators to be passed to `tf.keras.Model` training/eval
  methods.
  *   TensorFlow Debugger (tfdbg) CLI: fix an issue in which the TensorBoard
  Debugger Plugin could not handle total source file size exceeding gRPC
  message size limit (4 MB).
  *   `tf.contrib`:
  *   `tf.contrib.framework.zero_initializer` supports ResourceVariable.
  *   Adding "constrained_optimization" to tensorflow/contrib.
  *   Other:
  *   Add GCS Configuration Ops.
  *   Changing signature of `MakeIterator` to enable propagating error status.
  *   KL divergence for two Dirichlet distributions.
  *   More consistent GcsFileSystem behavior for certain reads past EOF.
  *   Update benchmark for tf.scan to match ranges across eager and graph
  modes.
  *   Fixed bug in `tf.reduce_prod gradient` for complex dtypes.
  *   Allow the use of '.' in variables (e.g. "hparams.parse('a.b=1.0')"),
  which would previously raise an error. This will correspond to an
  attribute name with an embedded '.' symbol (e.g. 'a.b'), which can only
  be accessed indirectly (e.g. through getattr and setattr). To set this
  up the user will first need to explicitly add the variable to the hparam
  object (e.g. "hparams.add_hparam(name='a.b', value=0.0)").
  *   Benchmark for tf.scan in graph and eager modes.
  *   Added complex128 support to FFT, FFT2D, FFT3D, IFFT, IFFT2D, and IFFT3D.
  *   Making ids unique in `nn.embedding_lookup_sparse`. This helps to reduce
  RPC calls for looking up the embeddings when there are repeated ids in
  the batch.
  *   Support indicator column in boosted trees.
  *   Prevent `tf.gradients()` from backpropagating through integer tensors.
  *   LinearOperator[1D,2D,3D]Circulant added to `tensorflow.linalg`.
  *   Conv3D, Conv3DBackpropInput, Conv3DBackpropFilter now supports
  arbitrary.
  *   Added `tf.train.Checkpoint` for reading/writing object-based
  checkpoints.
  *   Added LinearOperatorKronecker, a dense-free implementation of the
  Kronecker Product.
  *   Allow LinearOperator to broadcast.
  *   SavedModelBuilder will now deduplicate asset names that point to files
  with the same basename and the same contents. Note that this may result
  in new asset files included in SavedModels in cases where assets with
  the same name but different contents were previously overwriting each
  other.

  * Add `tf.contrib.data.AUTOTUNE`, which allows the tf.data runtime to automatically tune the prefetch buffer sizes based on your system and environment.
  * Add `tf.contrib.data.make_csv_dataset` for building datasets of CSV files.
  * Eager Execution:
  * With eager execution Datasets can now be used as standard python iterators (`for batch in dataset:`). Both `Dataset.__iter__()` and `Dataset.make_one_shot_iterator()` can now be used to create iterators when eager execution is enabled.
  * Automatic device placement has been enabled (i.e., use a GPU if available automatically, without requiring an explicit `with tf.device(“/gpu:0”)`) (Fixes 14133)
  * `tf.GradientTape` has moved out of contrib.
  * `tf.keras`:
  * Added the fashion mnist dataset.
  * New data preprocessing functions: `image/random_brightness`, `sequence/TimeseriesGenerator`, and `text/hashing_trick`.

  * Fix bug in `tf.contrib.opt.MultitaskOptimizerWrapper` where types of tensors were mismatched.
  * Other:
  * Low-level graph construction now calls the TensorFlow C API. This change should be invisible to most users, but can be disabled by setting the environment variable `TF_C_API_GRAPH_CONSTRUCTION=0` in this release. Future releases will remove the ability to disable this change. Please [file a bug](https://github.com/tensorflow/tensorflow/issues/new) if you find yourself using this escape hatch.
  * Add description of shapes and a pointer to tutorial notebook in `tf.distributions.Distribution`.
  * Update scatter operations:
  * Add `tf.scatter_min` and `tf.scatter_max`
  * Extend scatter operations to work with a scalar update parameter.

  * Add `float64` support for `Conv2d`, `Conv2dBackpropInput`, and `Conv2dBackpropFilter`.
  * Add `float64` support for `AvgPool`/`AvgPoolGrad`.
  * Make graph name scope thread local so that they work correctly in multi-threaded environments.

1.6.0 not secure

Breaking Changes
  * Prebuilt binaries are now built against CUDA 9.0 and cuDNN 7.
  * Prebuilt binaries will use AVX instructions. This may break TF on older CPUs.
  
  Major Features And Improvements
  * New Optimizer internal API for non-slot variables. Descendants of AdamOptimizer that access _beta[12]_power will need to be updated.
  * `tf.estimator.{FinalExporter,LatestExporter}` now export stripped SavedModels. This improves forward compatibility of the SavedModel.
  * FFT support added to XLA CPU/GPU.
  
  Bug Fixes and Other Changes
  * Documentation updates:
  * Added a second version of Getting Started, which is aimed at ML
  newcomers.
  * Clarified documentation on `resize_images.align_corners` parameter.
  * Additional documentation for TPUs.
  * Google Cloud Storage (GCS):
  * Add client-side throttle.
  * Add a `FlushCaches()` method to the FileSystem interface, with an implementation for GcsFileSystem.
  * Other:
  * Add `tf.contrib.distributions.Kumaraswamy`.
  * `RetryingFileSystem::FlushCaches()` calls the base FileSystem's `FlushCaches()`.
  * Add `auto_correlation` to distributions.
  * Add `tf.contrib.distributions.Autoregressive`.
  * Add SeparableConv1D layer.
  * Add convolutional Flipout layers.
  * When both inputs of `tf.matmul` are bfloat16, it returns bfloat16, instead of float32.
  * Added `tf.contrib.image.connected_components`.
  * Add `tf.contrib.framework.CriticalSection` that allows atomic variable access.
  * Output variance over trees predictions for classifications tasks.
  * For `pt` and `eval` commands, allow writing tensor values to filesystem as numpy files.
  * gRPC: Propagate truncated errors (instead of returning gRPC internal error).
  * Augment `parallel_interleave` to support 2 kinds of prefetching.
  * Improved XLA support for C64-related ops log, pow, atan2, tanh.
  * Add probabilistic convolutional layers.
  
  API Changes
  * Introducing `prepare_variance` boolean with default setting to False for backward compatibility.
  * Move `layers_dense_variational_impl.py` to `layers_dense_variational.py`.
  
  Known Bugs
  * Using XLA:GPU with CUDA 9 and CUDA 9.1 results in garbage results and/or
  `CUDA_ILLEGAL_ADDRESS` failures.
  
  Google discovered in mid-December 2017 that the PTX-to-SASS compiler in CUDA 9
  and CUDA 9.1 sometimes does not properly compute the carry bit when
  decomposing 64-bit address calculations with large offsets (e.g. `load [x +
  large_constant]`) into 32-bit arithmetic in SASS.
  
  As a result, these versions of `ptxas` miscompile most XLA programs which use
  more than 4GB of temp memory.  This results in garbage results and/or
  `CUDA_ERROR_ILLEGAL_ADDRESS` failures.
  
  A fix in CUDA 9.1.121 is expected in late February 2018.  We do not expect a
  fix for CUDA 9.0.x.  Until the fix is available, the only workaround is to
  [downgrade](https://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-toolkit-archive) to CUDA 8.0.x
  or disable XLA:GPU.
  
  TensorFlow will print a warning if you use XLA:GPU with a known-bad version of
  CUDA; see e00ba24c4038e7644da417ddc639169b6ea59122.

1.5.0 not secure

Breaking Changes
  * Prebuilt binaries are now built against CUDA 9.0 and cuDNN 7.
  * Starting from 1.6 release, our prebuilt binaries will use AVX instructions.
  This may break TF on older CPUs.
  
  Major Features And Improvements
  * [Eager execution](https://github.com/tensorflow/tensorflow/tree/r1.5/tensorflow/contrib/eager)
  preview version is now available.
  * [TensorFlow Lite](https://github.com/tensorflow/tensorflow/tree/r1.5/tensorflow/lite)
  dev preview is now available.
  * CUDA 9.0 and cuDNN 7 support.

  * Add `complex64` support to XLA compiler.
  * `bfloat` support is now added to XLA infrastructure.
  * Make `ClusterSpec` propagation work with XLA devices.
  * Use a deterministic executor to generate XLA graph.
  * `tf.contrib`:
  * `tf.contrib.distributions`:
  * Add `tf.contrib.distributions.Autoregressive`.
  * Make `tf.contrib.distributions` QuadratureCompound classes support batch
  * Infer `tf.contrib.distributions.RelaxedOneHotCategorical` `dtype` from arguments.
  * Make `tf.contrib.distributions` quadrature family parameterized by
  `quadrature_grid_and_prob` vs `quadrature_degree`.
  * `auto_correlation` added to `tf.contrib.distributions`
  * Add `tf.contrib.bayesflow.layers`, a collection of probabilistic (neural) layers.
  * Add `tf.contrib.bayesflow.halton_sequence`.
  * Add `tf.contrib.data.make_saveable_from_iterator.`
  * Add `tf.contrib.data.shuffle_and_repeat`.
  * Add new custom transformation: `tf.contrib.data.scan()`.
  * `tf.contrib.distributions.bijectors`:
  * Add `tf.contrib.distributions.bijectors.MaskedAutoregressiveFlow`.
  * Add `tf.contrib.distributions.bijectors.Permute`.
  * Add `tf.contrib.distributions.bijectors.Gumbel`.
  * Add `tf.contrib.distributions.bijectors.Reshape`.
  * Support shape inference (i.e., shapes containing -1) in the Reshape bijector.
  * Add `streaming_precision_recall_at_equal_thresholds,` a method for computing
  streaming precision and recall with `O(num_thresholds + size of predictions)`
  time and space complexity.
  * Change `RunConfig` default behavior to not set a random seed, making random
  behavior independently random on distributed workers. We expect this to
  generally improve training performance. Models that do rely on determinism
  should set a random seed explicitly.
  * Replaced the implementation of `tf.flags` with `absl.flags`.
  * Add support for `CUBLAS_TENSOR_OP_MATH` in fp16 GEMM
  * Add support for CUDA on NVIDIA Tegra devices
  
  Bug Fixes and Other Changes

  rather than `ds`, `bs`.
  * Fix docstring typos in `tf.distributions.bijectors.Bijector`.

  `InvalidArgumentError,` as documented.
  * Update Getting Started docs and API intro.
  * Google Cloud Storage (GCS):
  * Add userspace DNS caching for the GCS client.
  * Customize request timeouts for the GCS filesystem.
  * Improve GCS filesystem caching.
  * Bug Fixes:
  * Fix bug where partitioned integer variables got their wrong shapes. Before
  * Fix correctness bug in CPU and GPU implementations of Adadelta.

  a non-empty `import_scope` argument.
  * Fix bug in offline debugger which prevented viewing events.
  * Added the `WorkerService.DeleteWorkerSession` method to the gRPC interface,
  to fix a memory leak. Ensure that your master and worker servers are running
  the same version of TensorFlow to avoid compatibility issues.
  * Fix bug in peephole implementation of BlockLSTM cell.
  * Fix bug by casting dtype of `log_det_jacobian` to match `log_prob` in
  `TransformedDistribution`.
  * Fix a bug in `import_meta_graph`'s handling of partitioned variables when
  * Ensure `tf.distributions.Multinomial` doesn't underflow in `log_prob`.
  Before this change, all partitions of an integer variable were initialized
  with the shape of the unpartitioned variable; after this change they are
  initialized correctly.
  * Other:
  * Add necessary shape util support for bfloat16.
  * Add a way to run ops using a step function to MonitoredSession.
  * Add `DenseFlipout` probabilistic layer.
  * A new flag `ignore_live_threads` is available on train. If set to `True`, it
  will ignore threads that remain running when tearing down infrastructure
  after successfully completing training, instead of throwing a RuntimeError.
  * Restandardize `DenseVariational` as simpler template for other probabilistic
  layers.
  * `tf.data` now supports `tf.SparseTensor` components in dataset elements.
  * It is now possible to iterate over `Tensor`s.
  * Allow `SparseSegmentReduction` ops to have missing segment IDs.
  * Modify custom export strategy to account for multidimensional sparse float
  splits.
  * `Conv2D`, `Conv2DBackpropInput`, `Conv2DBackpropFilter` now supports arbitrary
  dilations with GPU and cuDNNv6 support.
  * `Estimator` now supports `Dataset`: `input_fn` can return a `Dataset`
  instead of `Tensor`s.
  * Add `RevBlock`, a memory-efficient implementation of reversible residual layers.
  * Reduce BFCAllocator internal fragmentation.
  * Add `cross_entropy` and `kl_divergence` to `tf.distributions.Distribution`.
  * Add `tf.nn.softmax_cross_entropy_with_logits_v2` which enables backprop
  w.r.t. the labels.
  * GPU back-end now uses `ptxas` to compile generated PTX.

  * Minor refactor: move stats files from `stochastic` to `common` and remove
  `stochastic`.

  * Using XLA:GPU with CUDA 9 and CUDA 9.1 results in garbage results and/or
  `CUDA_ILLEGAL_ADDRESS` failures.

1.4.1 not secure

Bug Fixes and Other Changes
  * `LinearClassifier` fix.

1.4.0 not secure

Major Features And Improvements
  * `tf.keras` is now part of the core TensorFlow API.
  * [`tf.data`](http://tensorflow.org/guide/data) is now part of
  the core TensorFlow API.
  * The API is now subject to backwards compatibility guarantees.
  * For a guide to migrating from the `tf.contrib.data` API, see the
  [README](https://github.com/tensorflow/tensorflow/blob/r1.4/tensorflow/contrib/data/README.md).
  * Major new features include `Dataset.from_generator()` (for building an input
  pipeline from a Python generator), and the `Dataset.apply()` method for
  applying custom transformation functions.
  * Several custom transformation functions have been added, including
  `tf.contrib.data.batch_and_drop_remainder()` and
  `tf.contrib.data.sloppy_interleave()`.
  * Add `train_and_evaluate` for simple distributed `Estimator` training.
  * Add `tf.spectral.dct` for computing the DCT-II.
  * Add Mel-Frequency Cepstral Coefficient support to `tf.contrib.signal`
  (with GPU and gradient support).
  * Add a self-check on `import tensorflow` for Windows DLL issues.
  * Add NCHW support to `tf.depth_to_space` on GPU.
  * TensorFlow Debugger (tfdbg):
  * Add `eval` command to allow evaluation of arbitrary Python/numpy expressions
  in tfdbg command-line interface. See
  [Debugging TensorFlow Programs](https://www.tensorflow.org/guide/debugger)
  for more details.
  * Usability improvement: The frequently used tensor filter `has_inf_or_nan` is
  now added to `Session` wrappers and hooks by default. So there is no need
  for clients to call `.add_tensor_filter(tf_debug.has_inf_or_nan)` anymore.
  * SinhArcsinh (scalar) distribution added to `contrib.distributions`.
  * Make `GANEstimator` opensource.
  * `Estimator.export_savedmodel()` now includes all valid serving signatures
  that can be constructed from the Serving Input Receiver and all available
  ExportOutputs. For instance, a classifier may provide regression- and
  prediction-flavored outputs, in addition to the classification-flavored one.
  Building signatures from these allows TF Serving to honor requests using the
  different APIs (Classify, Regress, and Predict). Furthermore,
  `serving_input_receiver_fn()` may now specify alternative subsets of nodes
  that may act as inputs. This allows, for instance, producing a prediction
  signature for a classifier that accepts raw `Tensors` instead of a serialized
  `tf.Example`.
  * Add `tf.contrib.bayesflow.hmc`.
  * Add `tf.contrib.distributions.MixtureSameFamily`.
  * Make `Dataset.shuffle()` always reshuffles after each iteration by default.
  * Add `tf.contrib.bayesflow.metropolis_hastings`.
  * Add `log_rate` parameter to `tf.contrib.distributions.Poisson`.
  * Extend `tf.contrib.distributions.bijector` API to handle some non-injective
  transforms.
  * Java:
  * Generics (e.g., `Tensor<Integer>`) for improved type-safety
  (courtesy andrewcmyers).
  * Support for multi-dimensional string tensors.
  * Support loading of custom operations (e.g. many in `tf.contrib`) on Linux
  and OS X
  * All our prebuilt binaries have been built with CUDA 8 and cuDNN 6.
  We anticipate releasing TensorFlow 1.5 with CUDA 9 and cuDNN 7.
  
  Bug Fixes and Other Changes
  * `tf.nn.rnn_cell.DropoutWrapper` is now more careful about dropping out LSTM
  states.  Specifically, it no longer ever drops the `c` (memory) state of an
  `LSTMStateTuple`.  The new behavior leads to proper dropout behavior
  for LSTMs and stacked LSTMs.  This bug fix follows recommendations from
  published literature, but is a behavioral change.  State dropout behavior
  may be customized via the new `dropout_state_filter_visitor` argument.
  * Removed `tf.contrib.training.python_input`.  The same behavior, in a more
  flexible and reproducible package, is available via the new
  `tf.contrib.data.Dataset.from_generator` method!
  * Fix `tf.contrib.distributions.Affine` incorrectly computing log-det-jacobian.
  * Fix `tf.random_gamma` incorrectly handling non-batch, scalar draws.
  * Resolved a race condition in TensorForest TreePredictionsV4Op.
  * Google Cloud Storage file system, Amazon S3 file system, and Hadoop file
  system support are now default build options.
  * Custom op libraries must link against libtensorflow_framework.so
  (installed at `tf.sysconfig.get_lib()`).
  * Change `RunConfig` default behavior to not set a random seed, making random
  behavior independently random on distributed workers. We expect this to
  generally improve training performance. Models that do rely on determinism
  should set a random seed explicitly.
  
  Breaking Changes to the API
  * The signature of the `tf.contrib.data.rejection_resample()` function has been
  changed. It now returns a function that can be used as an argument to
  `Dataset.apply()`.
  * Remove `tf.contrib.data.Iterator.from_dataset()` method. Use
  `Dataset.make_initializable_iterator()` instead.
  * Remove seldom used and unnecessary `tf.contrib.data.Iterator.dispose_op()`.
  * Reorder some TF-GAN loss functions in a non-backwards compatible way.
  
  Known Issues
  * In Python 3, `Dataset.from_generator()` does not support Unicode strings.
  You must convert any strings to bytes objects before yielding them from
  the generator.

1.3.0 not secure

See also [TensorBoard 0.1.4](https://github.com/tensorflow/tensorboard/releases/tag/0.1.4) release notes.
  
  Major Features and Improvements
  * Added canned estimators to Tensorflow library. List of added estimators:
  * `DNNClassifier`
  * `DNNRegressor`
  * `LinearClassifier`
  * `LinearRegressor`
  * `DNNLinearCombinedClassifier`
  * `DNNLinearCombinedRegressor`.
  * All our prebuilt binaries have been built with cuDNN 6. We anticipate releasing TensorFlow 1.4 with cuDNN 7.
  * `import tensorflow` now goes much faster.
  * Adds a file cache to the GCS filesystem with configurable max staleness for file contents. This permits caching of file contents across close/open boundaries.
  * Added an axis parameter to `tf.gather`.
  * Added a `constant_values` keyword argument to `tf.pad`.
  * Adds `Dataset.interleave` transformation.
  * Add `ConcatenateDataset` to concatenate two datasets.
  * Added Mobilenet support to TensorFlow for Poets training script.
  * Adds a block cache to the GCS filesystem with configurable block size and count.
  * SinhArcSinh bijector added.
  * Added `Dataset.list_files` API.
  * Introduces new operations and Python bindings for the Cloud TPU.
  * Adding TensorFlow-iOS CocoaPod for symmetry with tensorflow-android.
  * Introduces base implementations of ClusterResolvers.
  * Unify memory representations of TensorShape and PartialTensorShape. As a consequence, tensors now have a maximum of 254 dimensions, not 255.
  * Changed references to LIBXSMM to use version 1.8.1.
  * TensorFlow Debugger (tfdbg):
  * Display summaries of numeric tensor values with the `-s` flag to command `print_tensor` or `pt`.
  * Display feed values with the `print_feed` or `pf` command and clickable links in the curses UI.
  * Runtime profiler at the op level and the Python source line level with the `run -p` command.
  * Initial release of the statistical distribution library `tf.distributions`.
  * GPU kernels and speed improvements for unary `tf.where` and `tf.nn.top_k`.
  * Monotonic Attention wrappers added to `tf.contrib.seq2seq`.
  * Added `tf.contrib.signal`, a library for signal processing primitives.
  * Added `tf.contrib.resampler`, containing CPU and GPU ops for differentiable resampling of images.
  
  Breaking Changes to the API
  * `tf.RewriterConfig` was removed from the Python API after being available in 1.2 release candidates (it was never in an actual release). Graph rewriting is still available, just not as `tf.RewriterConfig`. Instead add an explicit import.
  * Breaking change to `tf.contrib.data.Dataset` APIs that expect a nested structure. Lists are now converted to `tf.Tensor` implicitly. You may need to change uses of lists to tuples in existing code. In addition, dicts are now supported as a nested structure.
  
  Changes to contrib APIs
  * Adds tf.contrib.nn.rank_sampled_softmax_loss, a sampled-softmax variant that can improve rank loss.
  * `tf.contrib.metrics`.{streaming_covariance,streaming_pearson_correlation} modified to return nan when they have seen less or equal to 1 unit of weight.
  * Adds time series models to contrib. See contrib/timeseries/README.md for details.
  * Adds FULLY_CONNECTED Op to tensorflow/lite/schema.fbs
  
  Known Issues
  * Tensorflow_gpu compilation fails with Bazel 0.5.3.
  
  Bug Fixes and Other Changes
  * Fixes `strides` and `begin` dtype mismatch when slicing using int64 Tensor index in python.
  * Improved convolution padding documentation.
  * Add a tag constant, gpu, to present graph with GPU support.
  * `saved_model.utils` now support SparseTensors transparently.
  * A more efficient implementation of non-max suppression.
  * Add support for the shrinkage-type L2 to FtrlOptimizer in addition to the online L2 it already supports.
  * Fix negative variance in moments calculation.
  * Expand UniqueOp Benchmark Tests to cover more collision cases.
  * Improves stability of GCS filesystem on Mac.
  * Add time estimation to HloCostAnalysis.
  * Fixed the bug in Estimator that params in constructor was not a deepcopy of the user provided one. This bugs inadvertently enabled user to mutate the params after the creation of Estimator, leading to potentially undefined behavior.
  * Added None check for save_path in `saver.restore`.
  * Register devices under their legacy names in device_mgr to ease the transition to clusterspec-propagated configurations.
  * VectorExponential added to distributions.
  * Add a bitwise module with bitwise_and, bitwise_or, bitwise_xor, and invert functions.
  * Add fixed-grid ODE integration routines.
  * Allow passing bounds to ScipyOptimizerInterface.
  * Correctness fixes for fft_length parameter to `tf.spectral.rfft` & `tf.spectral.irfft`.
  * Exported model signatures using the 'predict' method will no longer have their input and output keys silently ignored and rewritten to 'inputs' and 'outputs'. If a model was exported with different names before 1.2, and is now served with tensorflow/serving, it will accept requests using 'inputs' and 'outputs'. Starting at 1.2, such a model will accept the keys specified during export. Therefore, inference requests using 'inputs' and 'outputs' may start to fail. To fix this, either update any inference clients to send requests with the actual input and output keys used by the trainer code, or conversely, update the trainer code to name the input and output Tensors 'inputs' and 'outputs', respectively. Signatures using the 'classify' and 'regress' methods are not affected by this change; they will continue to standardize their input and output keys as before.
  * Add in-memory caching to the Dataset API.
  * Set default end_of_sequence variable in datasets iterators to false.
  * [Performance] Increase performance of `tf.layers.conv2d` when setting use_bias=True by 2x by using nn.bias_add.
  * Update iOS examples to use CocoaPods, and moved to tensorflow/examples/ios.
  * Adds a family= attribute in `tf.summary` ops to allow controlling the tab name used in Tensorboard for organizing summaries.
  * When GPU is configured, do not require --config=cuda, instead, automatically build for GPU if this is requested in the configure script.
  * Fix incorrect sampling of small probabilities in CPU/GPU multinomial.
  * Add a list_devices() API on sessions to list devices within a cluster. Additionally, this change augment the ListDevices master API to support specifying a session.
  * Allow uses of over-parameterized separable convolution.
  * TensorForest multi-regression bug fix.
  * Framework now supports armv7, cocoapods.org now displays correct page.
  * Script to create iOS framework for CocoaPods.
  * Android releases of TensorFlow are now pushed to jcenter for easier integration into apps. See https://github.com/tensorflow/tensorflow/blob/master/tensorflow/tools/android/inference_interface/README.md for more details.
  * TensorFlow Debugger (tfdbg):
  * Fixed a bug that prevented tfdbg from functioning with multi-GPU setups.
  * Fixed a bug that prevented tfdbg from working with `tf.Session.make_callable`.

1.2.1 not secure

Bug Fixes and Other Changes
  * Updating markdown version required to >= 2.6.8.
  * Support tensors as dropout rates again, by removing the min(max(..))

1.2.0 not secure

Major Features and Improvements
  * Python 3.6 support on Windows.
  * Added `tf.layers.conv3d_transpose` layer for spatio temporal deconvolution.
  * Added `tf.Session.make_callable()`, which provides a lower overhead means of running a similar step multiple times.
  * Added libverbs-based RDMA support to contrib (courtesy junshi15 from Yahoo).
  * Bring `tf.feature_column.*` into the API. Non-deprecated functionality from `tf.contrib.layers.*` is moved to `tf.feature_column.*` with cosmetic changes.
  * `RNNCell` objects now subclass `tf.layers.Layer`.  The strictness described
  in the TensorFlow 1.1 release is gone:  The first time an RNNCell is used,
  it caches its scope.  All future uses of the RNNCell will reuse variables from
  that same scope.  This is a breaking change from the behavior of RNNCells
  in TensorFlow versions <= 1.0.1.  TensorFlow 1.1 had checks in place to
  ensure old code works correctly with the new semantics; this version
  allows more flexible uses of RNNCell but can lead to subtle errors if
  using code meant for TensorFlow <= 1.0.1.  For example, writing:
  `MultiRNNCell([lstm] * 5)` will now build a 5-layer LSTM stack where each
  layer shares the **same** parameters.  To get 5 layers each with their own
  parameters, write: `MultiRNNCell([LSTMCell(...) for _ in range(5)])`.
  If at all unsure, first test your code with TF 1.1; ensure it raises no
  errors, and then upgrade to TF 1.2.
  * RNNCells' variable names have been renamed for consistency with Keras layers.
  Specifically, the previous variable names "weights" and "biases" have
  been changed to "kernel" and "bias", respectively.
  This may cause backward incompatibility with regard to your old
  checkpoints containing such RNN cells, in which case you can use the tool
  [checkpoint_convert script](https://github.com/tensorflow/tensorflow/blob/master/tensorflow/contrib/rnn/python/tools/checkpoint_convert.py)
  to convert the variable names in your old checkpoints.
  * Many of the RNN functions and classes that were in the `tf.nn` namespace
  before the 1.0 release and which were moved to `tf.contrib.rnn` have now
  been moved back to the core namespace.  This includes
  `RNNCell`, `LSTMCell`, `GRUCell`, and a number of other cells.  These
  now reside in `tf.nn.rnn_cell` (with aliases in `tf.contrib.rnn` for backwards
  compatibility).  The original `tf.nn.rnn` function is now `tf.nn.static_rnn`,
  and the bidirectional static and state saving static rnn functions are also
  now back in the `tf.nn` namespace.
  
  Notable exceptions are the `EmbeddingWrapper`, `InputProjectionWrapper` and
  `OutputProjectionWrapper`,  which will slowly be moved to deprecation
  in `tf.contrib.rnn`.  These are inefficient wrappers that should often
  be replaced by calling `embedding_lookup` or `layers.dense` as pre- or post-
  processing of the rnn.  For RNN decoding, this functionality has been replaced
  with an alternative API in `tf.contrib.seq2seq`.
  * Intel MKL Integration (https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/tensorflow-optimizations-on-modern-intel-architecture). Intel developed a number of
  optimized deep learning primitives: In addition to matrix multiplication and
  convolution, these building blocks include:
  Direct batched convolution
  Pooling: maximum, minimum, average
  Normalization: LRN, batch normalization
  Activation: rectified linear unit (ReLU)
  Data manipulation: multi-dimensional transposition (conversion), split,
  concat, sum and scale.
  * TensorForest Estimator now supports SavedModel export for serving.
  * Support client-provided ClusterSpec's and propagate them to all workers to enable the creation of dynamic TensorFlow clusters.
  * TensorFlow C library now available for Windows.
  * We released a new open-source version of TensorBoard.
  * [`SavedModel CLI`](https://www.tensorflow.org/versions/master/guide/saved_model_cli) tool available to inspect and execute MetaGraph in SavedModel
  * Android releases of TensorFlow are now pushed to jcenter for easier
  integration into apps. See
  https://github.com/tensorflow/tensorflow/blob/master/tensorflow/tools/android/inference_interface/README.md
  for more details.
  
  Deprecations
  
  * TensorFlow 1.2 may be the last time we build with cuDNN 5.1. Starting with
  TensorFlow 1.3, we will try to build all our prebuilt binaries with cuDNN 6.0.
  While we will try to keep our source code compatible with cuDNN 5.1, it will
  be best effort.
  
  Breaking Changes to the API
  * `org.tensorflow.contrib.android.TensorFlowInferenceInterface` now throws exceptions where possible and has simplified method signatures.
  
  Changes to contrib APIs
  * Added `tf.contrib.util.create_example`.
  * Added bilinear interpolation to `tf.contrib.image`.
  * Add `tf.contrib.stateless` for random ops with custom seed control.
  * MultivariateNormalFullCovariance added to contrib/distributions/
  * tensorflow/contrib/rnn undergoes RNN cell variable renaming for
  consistency with Keras layers. Specifically, the previous variable names
  "weights" and "biases" are changed to "kernel" and "bias", respectively.
  This may cause backward incompatibility with regard to your old
  checkpoints containing such RNN cells, in which case you can use the
  [checkpoint_convert script](https://github.com/tensorflow/tensorflow/blob/master/tensorflow/contrib/rnn/python/tools/checkpoint_convert.py)
  to convert the variable names in your old checkpoints.
  * Added `tf.contrib.kernel_methods` module with Ops and estimators for primal
  (explicit) kernel methods in TensorFlow.
  
  Bug Fixes and Other Changes
  * In python, `Operation.get_attr` on type attributes returns the Python DType
  version of the type to match expected get_attr documentation rather than the
  protobuf enum.
  * tensorflow/contrib/rnn undergoes RNN cell variable renaming for
  consistency with Keras layers. Specifically, the previous variable names
  "weights" and "biases" are changed to "kernel" and "bias", respectively.
  * Changed MIN_SDK version to 8.0 when building iOS libraries.
  * Fixed LIBXSMM integration.
  * Make decode_jpeg/decode_png/decode_gif handle all formats, since users frequently try to decode an image as the wrong type.
  * Improve implicit broadcasting lowering.
  * Improving stability of GCS/BigQuery clients by a faster retrying of stale transmissions.
  * Remove OpKernelConstruction::op_def() as part of minimizing proto dependencies.
  * VectorLaplaceDiag distribution added.
  * Android demo no longer requires libtensorflow_demo.so to run (libtensorflow_inference.so still required)
  * Added `categorical_column_with_vocabulary_file`.
  * Introduce ops for batching/unbatching tensors across Session::Run() calls.
  * Add tf.log_sigmoid(x) = tf.log(tf.sigmoid(x)) = -tf.nn.softplus(-x).
  * Changed hooks lists to immutable tuples, and now allow any iterable for the associated arguments.
  * Introduce TFDecorator.
  * Added an Mfcc op for speech feature generation.
  * Improved DirectSession::Run() overhead and error checking. Feeding a value of the wrong type will now synchronously raise an INVALID_ARGUMENT error instead of asynchronously raising an INTERNAL error. Code that depends on the (undefined) behavior when feeding a tensor of the wrong type may need to be updated.
  * Added unreduced NONE, and reduced MEAN options for losses. Removed "WEIGHTED_" prefix from other Reduction constants.
  * assertAllClose now handles dicts.
  * Added Gmock matcher for HloInstructions.
  * Add var name to errors on variable restore.
  * Added an AudioSpectrogram op for audio feature generation.
  * Added `reduction` arg to losses.
  * `tf.placeholder` can represent scalar shapes and partially known.
  * Remove estimator_spec(mode) argument.
  * Added an AudioSpectrogram op for audio feature generation.
  * TensorBoard disables all runs by default if there are more than 40 runs.
  * Removed old doc generator code.
  * GCS file system integration now supports domain buckets, e.g gs://bucket.domain.com/path.
  * Add `tf.summary.text` for outputting text to TensorBoard.
  * The "run" command of tfdbg's command-line interface now supports filtering of tensors by node name, op type and tensor dtype.
  * `tf.string_to_number` now supports int64 and float64 outputs.

1.0.1 not secure

Bug Fixes and Other Changes
  * Change GraphConstructor to not increase the version when importing, but instead take the min of all versions.
  * Google Cloud Storage fixes.
  * Removed `tf.core` and `tf.python` modules from the API. These were never intended to be exposed. Please use the same objects through top-level `tf` module instead.

1.0.0 not secure

Major Features and Improvements
  * XLA (experimental): initial release of [XLA](https://www.tensorflow.org/versions/master/experimental/xla/), a domain-specific compiler for TensorFlow graphs, that targets CPUs and GPUs.
  * TensorFlow Debugger (tfdbg): command-line interface and API.
  * New python 3 docker images added.
  * Made pip packages pypi compliant. TensorFlow can now be installed by `pip
  install tensorflow` command.
  * Several python API calls have been changed to resemble NumPy more closely.
  * Android: person detection + tracking demo implementing Scalable Object
  Detection using Deep Neural Networks.
  * New (experimental) [Java API](https://github.com/tensorflow/tensorflow/tree/master/tensorflow/java).
  * Add new Android image stylization demo based on "A Learned Representation For Artistic Style", and add YOLO object detector support.
  
  Breaking Changes to the API
  To help you upgrade your existing TensorFlow Python code to match the API changes below, we have prepared a [conversion script](https://github.com/tensorflow/tensorflow/tree/master/tensorflow/tools/compatibility).
  * TensorFlow/models have been moved to a separate github repository.
  * Division and modulus operators (/, //, %) now match Python (flooring)
  semantics. This applies to `tf.div` and `tf.mod` as well. To obtain forced
  integer truncation based behaviors you can use `tf.truncatediv`
  and `tf.truncatemod`.
  * `tf.divide()` is now the recommended division function. `tf.div()` will
  remain, but its semantics do not respond to Python 3 or `from future`
  mechanisms.
  * tf.reverse() now takes indices of axes to be reversed. E.g.
  `tf.reverse(a, [True, False, True])` must now be written as
  `tf.reverse(a, [0, 2])`. `tf.reverse_v2()` will remain until 1.0 final.
  * `tf.mul`, `tf.sub` and `tf.neg` are deprecated in favor of `tf.multiply`,
  `tf.subtract` and `tf.negative`.
  * `tf.pack` and `tf.unpack` are deprecated in favor of `tf.stack` and
  `tf.unstack`.
  * `TensorArray.pack` and `TensorArray.unpack` are getting deprecated in favor of
  `TensorArray.stack` and `TensorArray.unstack`.
  * The following Python functions have had their arguments changed to use `axis`
  when referring to specific dimensions. We have kept the old keyword arguments
  for compatibility currently, but we will be removing them well before the
  final 1.0.
  * `tf.argmax`: `dimension` becomes `axis`
  * `tf.argmin`: `dimension` becomes `axis`
  * `tf.count_nonzero`: `reduction_indices` becomes `axis`
  * `tf.expand_dims`: `dim` becomes `axis`
  * `tf.reduce_all`: `reduction_indices` becomes `axis`
  * `tf.reduce_any`: `reduction_indices` becomes `axis`
  * `tf.reduce_join`: `reduction_indices` becomes `axis`
  * `tf.reduce_logsumexp`: `reduction_indices` becomes `axis`
  * `tf.reduce_max`: `reduction_indices` becomes `axis`
  * `tf.reduce_mean`: `reduction_indices` becomes `axis`
  * `tf.reduce_min`: `reduction_indices` becomes `axis`
  * `tf.reduce_prod`: `reduction_indices` becomes `axis`
  * `tf.reduce_sum`: `reduction_indices` becomes `axis`
  * `tf.reverse_sequence`: `batch_dim` becomes `batch_axis`, `seq_dim` becomes `seq_axis`
  * `tf.sparse_concat`: `concat_dim` becomes `axis`
  * `tf.sparse_reduce_sum`: `reduction_axes` becomes `axis`
  * `tf.sparse_reduce_sum_sparse`: `reduction_axes` becomes `axis`
  * `tf.sparse_split`: `split_dim` becomes `axis`
  * `tf.listdiff` has been renamed to `tf.setdiff1d` to match NumPy naming.
  * `tf.inv` has been renamed to be `tf.reciprocal` (component-wise reciprocal)
  to avoid confusion with `np.inv` which is matrix inversion
  * tf.round now uses banker's rounding (round to even) semantics to match NumPy.
  * `tf.split` now takes arguments in a reversed order and with different
  keywords. In particular, we now match NumPy order as
  `tf.split(value, num_or_size_splits, axis)`.
  * `tf.sparse_split` now takes arguments in reversed order and with different
  keywords. In particular we now match NumPy order as
  `tf.sparse_split(sp_input, num_split, axis)`. NOTE: we have temporarily
  made `tf.sparse_split` require keyword arguments.
  * `tf.concat` now takes arguments in reversed order and with different keywords. In particular we now match NumPy order as `tf.concat(values, axis, name)`.
  * `tf.image.decode_jpeg` by default uses the faster DCT method, sacrificing
  a little fidelity for improved speed. One can revert to the old
  behavior by specifying the attribute `dct_method='INTEGER_ACCURATE'`.
  * `tf.complex_abs` has been removed from the Python interface. `tf.abs`
  supports complex tensors and should be used instead.
  * In the C++ API (in tensorflow/cc), Input, Output, etc. have moved
  from the tensorflow::ops namespace to tensorflow.
  * Template.`var_scope` property renamed to `.variable_scope`
  * SyncReplicasOptimizer is removed and SyncReplicasOptimizerV2 renamed to SyncReplicasOptimizer.
  * `tf.zeros_initializer()` and `tf.ones_initializer()` now return a callable
  that must be called with initializer arguments, in your code replace
  `tf.zeros_initializer` with `tf.zeros_initializer()`.
  * `SparseTensor.shape` has been renamed to `SparseTensor.dense_shape`.  Same for
  `SparseTensorValue.shape`.
  * Replace tf.scalar_summary, tf.histogram_summary, tf.audio_summary, tf.image_summary with tf.summary.scalar, tf.summary.histogram, tf.summary.audio, tf.summary.image, respectively. The new summary ops take name rather than tag as their first argument, meaning summary ops now respect TensorFlow name scopes.
  * Replace tf.train.SummaryWriter and tf.train.SummaryWriterCache with tf.summary.FileWriter and tf.summary.FileWriterCache.
  * Removes RegisterShape from public API. Use C++ shape function registration
  instead.
  * Deprecated `_ref` dtypes from the python API.
  * In the C++ API (in tensorflow/cc), Input, Output, etc. have moved
  from the tensorflow::ops namespace to tensorflow.
  * Change arg order for `{softmax,sparse_softmax,sigmoid}_cross_entropy_with_logits` to be (labels, predictions), and force use of named args.
  * tf.nn.rnn_cell.* and most functions in tf.nn.rnn.* (with the exception of dynamic_rnn and raw_rnn) are temporarily in tf.contrib.rnn.  They will be moved back into core for TF 1.2.
  * `tf.nn.sampled_softmax_loss` and `tf.nn.nce_loss` have both changed their API such that you need to switch the `inputs, labels` to `labels, inputs` parameters.
  * The shape keyword argument of the `SparseTensor` constructor changes its name to `dense_shape` between Tensorflow 0.12 and Tensorflow 1.0.
  
  Bug Fixes and Other Changes
  * Numerous C++ API updates.
  * New op: `parallel_stack`.
  * Introducing common tf io compression options constants for
  RecordReader/RecordWriter.
  * Add `sparse_column_with_vocabulary_file`, to specify a feature column that
  transform string features to IDs, where the mapping is defined by a vocabulary
  file.
  * Added `index_to_string_table` which returns a lookup table that maps indices to
  strings.
  * Add `string_to_index_table`, which returns a lookup table that matches strings
  to indices.
  * Add a `ParallelForWithWorkerId` function.
  * Add `string_to_index_table`, which returns a lookup table that matches strings
  to indices.
  * Support restore session from checkpoint files in v2 in `contrib/session_bundle`.
  * Added a tf.contrib.image.rotate function for arbitrary angles.
  * Added `tf.contrib.framework.filter_variables` as a convenience function to
  filter lists of variables based on regular expressions.
  * `make_template()` takes an optional `custom_getter_ param`.
  * Added comment about how existing directories are handled by
  `recursive_create_dir`.
  * Added an op for QR factorizations.
  * Divides and mods in Python API now use flooring (Python) semantics.
  * Android: pre-built libs are now built nightly.
  * Android: cmake/gradle build for TensorFlow Inference library under
  `contrib/android/cmake`
  * Android: Much more robust Session initialization code.
  * Android: TF stats now exposed directly in demo and log when debug mode is
  active
  * Android: new/better README.md documentation
  * saved_model is available as `tf.saved_model`.
  * Empty op is now stateful.
  * Improve speed of scatter_update on the cpu for ASSIGN operations.
  * Change `reduce_join` to treat `reduction_indices` in the same way as other `reduce_` ops.
  * Move `TensorForestEstimator` to `contrib/tensor_forest`.
  * Enable compiler optimizations by default and allow configuration in configure.
  * `tf.divide` now honors the name field.
  * Make metrics weight broadcasting more strict.
  * Add new queue-like `StagingArea` and new ops: `stage` and `unstage`.
  * Enable inplace update ops for strings on CPU. Speed up string concat.

0.12.0 not secure

Major Features and Improvements
  
  * TensorFlow now builds and runs on Microsoft Windows (tested on Windows 10,
  Windows 7, and Windows Server 2016). Supported languages include Python (via a
  pip package) and C++. CUDA 8.0 and cuDNN 5.1 are supported for GPU
  acceleration. Known limitations include: It is not currently possible to load
  a custom op library. The GCS and HDFS file systems are not currently
  supported. The following ops are not currently implemented:
  Dequantize, QuantizeAndDequantize, QuantizedAvgPool,
  QuantizedBatchNomWithGlobalNormalization, QuantizedBiasAdd, QuantizedConcat,
  QuantizedConv2D, QuantizedMatmul, QuantizedMaxPool,
  QuantizeDownAndShrinkRange, QuantizedRelu, QuantizedRelu6, QuantizedReshape,
  QuantizeV2, RequantizationRange, and Requantize.
  * Go: Experimental API in Go to create and execute graphs
  (https://godoc.org/github.com/tensorflow/tensorflow/tensorflow/go)
  * New checkpoint format becomes the default in `tf.train.Saver`. Old V1
  checkpoints continue to be readable; controlled by the `write_version`
  argument, `tf.train.Saver` now by default writes out in the new V2
  format. It significantly reduces the peak memory required and latency
  incurred during restore.
  * Added a new library for library of matrix-free (iterative) solvers for linear
  equations, linear least-squares, eigenvalues and singular values in
  tensorflow/contrib/solvers. Initial version has lanczos bidiagonalization,
  conjugate gradients and CGLS.
  * Added gradients for `matrix_solve_ls` and `self_adjoint_eig`.
  * Large cleanup to add second order gradient for ops with C++ gradients and
  improve existing gradients such that most ops can now be differentiated
  multiple times.
  * Added a solver for ordinary differential equations,
  `tf.contrib.integrate.odeint`.
  * New contrib module for tensors with named axes, `tf.contrib.labeled_tensor`.
  * Visualization of embeddings in TensorBoard.
  
  Breaking Changes to the API
  
  * `BusAdjacency` enum replaced with a protocol buffer `DeviceLocality`.  PCI bus
  indexing now starts from 1 instead of 0, and `bus_id==0` is used where
  previously `BUS_ANY` was used.
  * `Env::FileExists` and `FileSystem::FileExists` now return a tensorflow::Status
  instead of a bool. Any callers to this function can be converted to a bool
  by adding .ok() to the call.
  * The C API type `TF_SessionWithGraph` has been renamed to `TF_Session`,
  indicating its preferred use in language bindings for TensorFlow.
  What was previously `TF_Session` has been renamed to `TF_DeprecatedSession`.
  * Renamed `TF_Port` to `TF_Output` in the C API.
  * Removes RegisterShape from public API. Use C++ shape function registration instead.
  indexing now starts from 1 instead of 0, and `bus_id==0` is used where
  previously `BUS_ANY` was used.
  * Most RNN cells and RNN functions now use different variable scopes to be
  consistent with layers (`tf.contrib.layers`).  This means old checkpoints
  written using this code will not load after this change without providing
  `Saver` a list of variable renames.  Examples of variable scope changes
  include `RNN` -> `rnn` in `tf.nn.rnn`, `tf.nn.dynamic_rnn` and moving from
  `Linear/Matrix` -> `weights` and `Linear/Bias` -> `biases` in most RNN cells.
  * Deprecated tf.select op. tf.where should be used instead.
  * `SparseTensor.shape` has been renamed to `SparseTensor.dense_shape`.  Same for
  `SparseTensorValue.shape`.
  * `Env::FileExists` and `FileSystem::FileExists` now return a
  `tensorflow::Status` instead of a bool. Any callers to this function can be
  converted to a bool by adding `.ok()` to the call.
  * C API: Type `TF_SessionWithGraph` has been renamed to `TF_Session`, indicating
  its preferred use in language bindings for TensorFlow. What was previously
  `TF_Session` has been renamed to `TF_DeprecatedSession`.
  * C API: Renamed `TF_Port` to `TF_Output`.
  * C API: The caller retains ownership of `TF_Tensor` objects provided to
  `TF_Run`, `TF_SessionRun`, `TF_SetAttrTensor` etc.
  * Renamed `tf.image.per_image_whitening()` to
  `tf.image.per_image_standardization()`
  * Move Summary protobuf constructors to `tf.summary` submodule.
  * Deprecate `histogram_summary`, `audio_summary`, `scalar_summary`,
  `image_summary`, `merge_summary`, and `merge_all_summaries`.
  * Combined `batch_*` and regular version of linear algebra and FFT ops. The
  regular op now handles batches as well. All `batch_*` Python interfaces were
  removed.
  * `tf.all_variables`, `tf.VARIABLES` and `tf.initialize_all_variables` renamed
  to `tf.global_variables`, `tf.GLOBAL_VARIABLES` and
  `tf.global_variables_initializer` respectively.
  * `tf.zeros_initializer()` and `tf.ones_initializer()` now return a callable
  that must be called with initializer arguments, in your code replace
  `tf.zeros_initializer` with `tf.zeros_initializer()`
  
  Bug Fixes and Other Changes
  
  * Use threadsafe version of `lgamma` function.
  * Fix `tf.sqrt` handling of negative arguments.
  * Fixed bug causing incorrect number of threads to be used for multi-threaded
  benchmarks.
  * Performance optimizations for `batch_matmul` on multi-core CPUs.
  * Improve trace, `matrix_set_diag`, `matrix_diag_part` and their gradients to
  work for rectangular matrices.
  * Support for SVD of complex valued matrices.

0.11.0

Major Features and Improvements
  
  * CUDA 8 support.
  * cuDNN 5 support.
  * HDFS Support.
  * Adds Fused LSTM support via cuDNN 5 in `tensorflow/contrib/cudnn_rnn`.
  * Improved support for NumPy style basic slicing including non-1 strides,
  ellipses, newaxis, and negative indices. For example complicated expressions
  like `foo[1, 2:4, tf.newaxis, ..., :-3:-1, :]` are now supported. In addition
  we have preliminary (non-broadcasting) support for sliced assignment to
  variables. In particular one can write `var[1:3].assign([1,11,111])`.
  * Deprecated `tf.op_scope` and `tf.variable_op_scope` in favor of a unified `tf.name_scope` and `tf.variable_scope`. The new argument order of `tf.variable_scope` is incompatible with previous versions.
  * Introducing `core/util/tensor_bundle` module: a module to efficiently
  serialize/deserialize tensors to disk.  Will be used in TF's new checkpoint
  format.
  * Added tf.svd for computing the singular value decomposition (SVD) of dense
  matrices or batches of matrices (CPU only).
  * Added gradients for eigenvalues and eigenvectors computed using
  `self_adjoint_eig` or `self_adjoint_eigvals`.
  * Eliminated `batch_*` methods for most linear algebra and FFT ops and promoted
  the non-batch version of the ops to handle batches of matrices.
  * Tracing/timeline support for distributed runtime (no GPU profiler yet).
  * C API gives access to inferred shapes with `TF_GraphGetTensorNumDims` and
  `TF_GraphGetTensorShape`.
  * Shape functions for core ops have moved to C++ via
  `REGISTER_OP(...).SetShapeFn(...)`.  Python shape inference RegisterShape calls
  use the C++ shape functions with `common_shapes.call_cpp_shape_fn`.  A future
  release will remove `RegisterShape` from python.
  
  
  Bug Fixes and Other Changes
  
  * Documentation now includes operator overloads on Tensor and Variable.
  * `tensorflow.__git_version__` now allows users to identify the version of the
  code that TensorFlow was compiled with. We also have
  `tensorflow.__git_compiler__` which identifies the compiler used to compile
  TensorFlow's core.
  * Improved multi-threaded performance of `batch_matmul`.
  * LSTMCell, BasicLSTMCell, and MultiRNNCell constructors now default to
  `state_is_tuple=True`.  For a quick fix while transitioning to the new
  default, simply pass the argument `state_is_tuple=False`.
  * DeviceFactory's AddDevices and CreateDevices functions now return
  a Status instead of void.
  * Int32 elements of list(type) arguments are no longer placed in host memory by
  default. If necessary, a list(type) argument to a kernel can be placed in host
  memory using a HostMemory annotation.
  * `uniform_unit_scaling_initializer()` no longer takes a `full_shape` arg,
  instead relying on the partition info passed to the initializer function when
  it's called.
  * The NodeDef protocol message is now defined in its own file `node_def.proto`
  `instead of graph.proto`.
  * `ops.NoGradient` was renamed `ops.NotDifferentiable`. `ops.NoGradient` will
  be removed soon.
  * `dot.h` / DotGraph was removed (it was an early analysis tool prior
  to TensorBoard, no longer that useful).  It remains in history
  should someone find the code useful.
  * re2 / regexp.h was removed from being a public interface of TF.
  Should users need regular expressions, they should depend on the RE2
  library directly rather than via TensorFlow.

  * The RNN api is finally "official" (see, e.g., `tf.nn.dynamic_rnn`,
  `tf.nn.rnn`, and the classes in `tf.nn.rnn_cell`).
  * TensorBoard now has an Audio Dashboard, with associated audio summaries.
  
  Bug Fixes and Other Changes
  
  * Turned on CuDNN Autotune.
  * Added support for using third-party Python optimization algorithms (contrib.opt).
  * Google Cloud Storage filesystem support.
  * HDF5 support
  * Add support for 3d convolutions and pooling.
  * Update gRPC release to 0.14.
  * Eigen version upgrade.
  * Switch to eigen thread pool
  * `tf.nn.moments()` now accepts a `shift` argument. Shifting by a good estimate
  of the mean improves numerical stability. Also changes the behavior of the
  `shift` argument to `tf.nn.sufficient_statistics()`.
  * Performance improvements
  * Many bugfixes
  * Many documentation fixes
  * TensorBoard fixes: graphs with only one data point, Nan values,
  reload button and auto-reload, tooltips in scalar charts, run
  filtering, stable colors
  * Tensorboard graph visualizer now supports run metadata. Clicking on nodes
  while viewing a stats for a particular run will show runtime statistics, such
  as memory or compute usage. Unused nodes will be faded out.

0.7.1

Bug Fixes and Other Changes
  
  * Added gfile.Open and gfile.Copy, used by input_data.py.
  * Fixed Saver bug when MakeDirs tried to create empty directory.
  * GPU Pip wheels are built with cuda 7.5 and cudnn-v4, making them
  required for the binary releases. Lower versions of cuda/cudnn can
  be supported by installing from sources and setting the options
  during ./configure
  * Fix dataset encoding example for Python3 (danijar)
  * Fix PIP installation by not packaging protobuf as part of wheel,
  require protobuf 3.0.0b2.
  * Fix Mac pip installation of numpy by requiring pip >= 1.10.1.
  * Improvements and fixes to Docker image.

0.7.0

Major Features and Improvements
  
  * Allow using any installed Cuda >= 7.0 and cuDNN >= R2, and add support
  for cuDNN R4
  * Added a `contrib/` directory for unsupported or experimental features,
  including higher level `layers` module
  * Added an easy way to add and dynamically load user-defined ops
  * Built out a good suite of tests, things should break less!
  * Added `MetaGraphDef` which makes it easier to save graphs with metadata
  * Added assignments for "Deep Learning with TensorFlow" udacity course
  
  
  Bug Fixes and Other Changes
  
  * Added a versioning framework for `GraphDef`s to ensure compatibility
  * Enforced Python 3 compatibility
  * Internal changes now show up as sensibly separated commits
  * Open-sourced the doc generator
  * Un-fork Eigen
  * Simplified the `BUILD` files and cleaned up C++ headers
  * TensorFlow can now be used as a submodule in another bazel build
  * New ops (e.g., `*fft`, `*_matrix_solve`)
  * Support for more data types in many ops
  * Performance improvements
  * Various bugfixes
  * Documentation fixes and improvements
  
  
  Breaking Changes to the API
  
  * `AdjustContrast` kernel deprecated, new kernel `AdjustContrastv2` takes and
  outputs float only. `adjust_contrast` now takes all data types.
  * `adjust_brightness`'s `delta` argument is now always assumed to be in `[0,1]`
  (as is the norm for images in floating point formats), independent of the
  data type of the input image.
  * The image processing ops do not take `min` and `max` inputs any more, casting
  safety is handled by `saturate_cast`, which makes sure over- and underflows
  are handled before casting to data types with smaller ranges.
  * For C++ API users: `IsLegacyScalar` and `IsLegacyVector` are now gone from
  `TensorShapeUtils` since TensorFlow is scalar strict within Google (for
  example, the shape argument to `tf.reshape` can't be a scalar anymore).  The
  open source release was already scalar strict, so outside Google `IsScalar`
  and `IsVector` are exact replacements.
  * The following files are being removed from `tensorflow/core/public/`:
  * `env.h` -> `../platform/env.h`
  * `status.h` -> `../lib/core/status.h`
  * `tensor.h` -> `../framework/tensor.h`
  * `tensor_shape.h` -> `../framework/tensor_shape.h`
  * `partial_tensor_shape.h` -> `../framework/partial_tensor_shape.h`
  * `tensorflow_server.h` deleted
  * For C++ API users: `TensorShape::ShortDebugString` has been renamed to
  `DebugString`, and the previous `DebugString` behavior is gone (it was
  needlessly verbose and produced a confusing empty string for scalars).
  * `GraphOptions.skip_common_subexpression_elimination` has been removed. All
  graph optimizer options are now specified via
  `GraphOptions.OptimizerOptions`.
  * `ASSERT_OK` / `EXPECT_OK` macros conflicted with external projects, so they
  were renamed `TF_ASSERT_OK`, `TF_EXPECT_OK`.  The existing macros are
  currently maintained for short-term compatibility but will be removed.
  * The non-public `nn.rnn` and the various `nn.seq2seq` methods now return
  just the final state instead of the list of all states.
  * `tf.scatter_update` now no longer guarantees that lexicographically largest
  index be used for update when duplicate entries exist.
  * `tf.image.random_crop(image, [height, width])` is now
  `tf.random_crop(image, [height, width, depth])`, and `tf.random_crop` works
  for any rank (not just 3-D images).  The C++ `RandomCrop` op has been replaced
  with pure Python.
  * Renamed `tf.test.GetTempDir` and `tf.test.IsBuiltWithCuda` to
  `tf.test.get_temp_dir` and `tf.test.is_built_with_cuda` for PEP-8
  compatibility.
  * `parse_example`'s interface has changed, the old interface is accessible in
  `legacy_parse_example` (same for related functions).
  * New `Variable`s are not added to the same collection several times even if
  a list with duplicates is passed to the constructor.
  * The Python API will now properly set the `list` member of `AttrValue` in
  constructed `GraphDef` messages for empty lists.  The serialization of some
  graphs will change, but the change is both forwards and backwards compatible.
  It will break tests that compare a generated `GraphDef` to a golden serialized
  `GraphDef` (which is discouraged).

0.6.0

Major Features and Improvements
  
  * Python 3.3+ support via changes to python codebase and ability
  to specify python version via ./configure.
  
  * Some improvements to GPU performance and memory usage:
  [convnet benchmarks](https://github.com/soumith/convnet-benchmarks/issues/66)
  roughly equivalent with native cudnn v2 performance.  Improvements mostly due
  to moving to 32-bit indices, faster shuffling kernels.  More improvements to
  come in later releases.
  
  
  Bug Fixes
  
  * Lots of fixes to documentation and tutorials, many contributed
  by the public.
  
  * 271 closed issues on github issues.
  
  Backwards-Incompatible Changes
  
  * `tf.nn.fixed_unigram_candidate_sampler` changed its default 'distortion'
  attribute from 0.0 to 1.0. This was a bug in the original release
  that is now fixed.

0.5.0

Initial release of TensorFlow.
