0.3.25

* Changes
* Added support for tridiagonal reductions on CPU and GPU.
* Added support for upper Hessenberg reductions on CPU.
* Bugs
* Fixed a bug that meant that frames in tracebacks captured by JAX were
incorrectly mapped to source lines under Python 3.10+

0.3.24

* Changes
* JAX should be faster to import. We now import scipy lazily, which accounted
for a significant fraction of JAX's import time.
* Setting the env var `JAX_PERSISTENT_CACHE_MIN_COMPILE_TIME_SECS=$N` can be
used to limit the number of cache entries written to the persistent cache.
By default, computations that take 1 second or more to compile will be
cached.
* Added {func}`jax.scipy.stats.mode`.
* The default device order used by `pmap` on TPU if no order is specified now
matches `jax.devices()` for single-process jobs. Previously the
two orderings differed, which could lead to unnecessary copies or
out-of-memory errors. Requiring the orderings to agree simplifies matters.
* Breaking Changes
* {func}`jax.numpy.gradient` now behaves like most other functions in {mod}`jax.numpy`,
and forbids passing lists or tuples in place of arrays ({jax-issue}`12958`)
* Functions in {mod}`jax.numpy.linalg` and {mod}`jax.numpy.fft` now uniformly
require inputs to be array-like: i.e. lists and tuples cannot be used in place
of arrays. Part of {jax-issue}`7737`.
* Deprecations
* `jax.sharding.MeshPspecSharding` has been renamed to `jax.sharding.NamedSharding`.
`jax.sharding.MeshPspecSharding` name will be removed in 3 months.

jaxlib 0.3.24 (Nov 4, 2022)
* Changes
* Buffer donation now works on CPU. This may break code that marked buffers
for donation on CPU but relied on donation not being implemented.

0.3.23

* Changes
* Update Colab TPU driver version for new jaxlib release.

0.3.22

* Changes
* Add `JAX_PLATFORMS=tpu,cpu` as default setting in TPU initialization,
so JAX will raise an error if TPU cannot be initialized instead of falling
back to CPU. Set `JAX_PLATFORMS=''` to override this behavior and automatically
choose an available backend (the original default), or set `JAX_PLATFORMS=cpu`
to always use CPU regardless of if the TPU is available.
* Deprecations
* Several test utilities deprecated in JAX v0.3.8 are now removed from
{mod}`jax.test_util`.

jaxlib 0.3.22 (Oct 11, 2022)

0.3.21

* [GitHub commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.3.20...jax-v0.3.21).
* Changes
* The persistent compilation cache will now warn instead of raising an
exception on error ({jax-issue}`12582`), so program execution can continue
if something goes wrong with the cache. Set
`JAX_RAISE_PERSISTENT_CACHE_ERRORS=true` to revert this behavior.

0.3.20

* Bug fixes:
* Adds missing `.pyi` files that were missing from the previous release ({jax-issue}`12536`).
* Fixes an incompatibility between `jax` 0.3.19 and the libtpu version it pinned ({jax-issue}`12550`). Requires jaxlib 0.3.20.
* Fix incorrect `pip` url in `setup.py` comment ({jax-issue}`12528`).

jaxlib 0.3.20 (Sep 28, 2022)
* [GitHub commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jaxlib-v0.3.15...jaxlib-v0.3.20).
* Bug fixes
* Fixes support for limiting the visible CUDA devices via
`jax_cuda_visible_devices` in distributed jobs. This functionality is needed for
the JAX/SLURM integration on GPU ({jax-issue}`12533`).

0.3.19

* [GitHub commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.3.18...jax-v0.3.19).
* Fixes required jaxlib version.

0.3.18

* [GitHub commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.3.17...jax-v0.3.18).
* Changes
* Ahead-of-time lowering and compilation functionality (tracked in
{jax-issue}`7733`) is stable and public. See [the
overview](https://jax.readthedocs.io/en/latest/aot.html) and the API docs
for {mod}`jax.stages`.
* Introduced {class}`jax.Array`, intended to be used for both `isinstance` checks
and type annotations for array types in JAX. Notice that this included some subtle
changes to how `isinstance` works for {class}`jax.numpy.ndarray` for jax-internal
objects, as {class}`jax.numpy.ndarray` is now a simple alias of {class}`jax.Array`.
* Breaking changes
* `jax._src` is no longer imported into the from the public `jax` namespace.
This may break users that were using JAX internals.
* `jax.soft_pmap` has been deleted. Please use `pjit` or `xmap` instead.
`jax.soft_pmap` is undocumented. If it were documented, a deprecation period
would have been provided.

0.3.17

* [GitHub commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.3.16...jax-v0.3.17).
* Bugs
* Fix corner case issue in gradient of `lax.pow` with an exponent of zero
({jax-issue}`12041`)
* Breaking changes
* {func}`jax.checkpoint`, also known as {func}`jax.remat`, no longer supports
the `concrete` option, following the previous version's deprecation; see
[JEP 11830](https://jax.readthedocs.io/en/latest/jep/11830-new-remat-checkpoint.html).
* Changes
* Added {func}`jax.pure_callback` that enables calling back to pure Python functions from compiled functions (e.g. functions decorated with `jax.jit` or `jax.pmap`).
* Deprecations:
* The deprecated `DeviceArray.tile()` method has been removed. Use {func}`jax.numpy.tile`
({jax-issue}`11944`).
* `DeviceArray.to_py()` has been deprecated. Use `np.asarray(x)` instead.

0.3.16

* [GitHub commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.3.15...main).
* Breaking changes
* Support for NumPy 1.19 has been dropped, per the
[deprecation policy](https://jax.readthedocs.io/en/latest/deprecation.html).
Please upgrade to NumPy 1.20 or newer.
* Changes
* Added {mod}`jax.debug` that includes utilities for runtime value debugging such at {func}`jax.debug.print` and {func}`jax.debug.breakpoint`.
* Added new documentation for [runtime value debugging](debugging/index)
* Deprecations
* {func}`jax.mask` {func}`jax.shapecheck` APIs have been removed.
See {jax-issue}`11557`.
* {mod}`jax.experimental.loops` has been removed. See {jax-issue}`10278`
for an alternative API.
* {func}`jax.tree_util.tree_multimap` has been removed. It has been deprecated since
JAX release 0.3.5, and {func}`jax.tree_util.tree_map` is a direct replacement.
* Removed `jax.experimental.stax`; it has long been a deprecated alias of
{mod}`jax.example_libraries.stax`.
* Removed `jax.experimental.optimizers`; it has long been a deprecated alias of
{mod}`jax.example_libraries.optimizers`.
* {func}`jax.checkpoint`, also known as {func}`jax.remat`, has a new
implementation switched on by default, meaning the old implementation is
deprecated; see [JEP 11830](https://jax.readthedocs.io/en/latest/jep/11830-new-remat-checkpoint.html).

0.3.15

* [GitHub commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.3.14...jax-v0.3.15).
* Changes
* `JaxTestCase` and `JaxTestLoader` have been removed from `jax.test_util`. These
classes have been deprecated since v0.3.1 ({jax-issue}`11248`).
* Added {class}`jax.scipy.gaussian_kde` ({jax-issue}`11237`).
* Binary operations between JAX arrays and built-in collections (`dict`, `list`, `set`, `tuple`)
now raise a `TypeError` in all cases. Previously some cases (particularly equality and inequality)
would return boolean scalars inconsistent with similar operations in NumPy ({jax-issue}`11234`).
* Several {mod}`jax.tree_util` routines accessed as top-level JAX package imports are now
deprecated, and will be removed in a future JAX release in accordance with the
{ref}`api-compatibility` policy:
* {func}`jax.treedef_is_leaf` is deprecated in favor of {func}`jax.tree_util.treedef_is_leaf`
* {func}`jax.tree_flatten` is deprecated in favor of {func}`jax.tree_util.tree_flatten`
* {func}`jax.tree_leaves` is deprecated in favor of {func}`jax.tree_util.tree_leaves`
* {func}`jax.tree_structure` is deprecated in favor of {func}`jax.tree_util.tree_structure`
* {func}`jax.tree_transpose` is deprecated in favor of {func}`jax.tree_util.tree_transpose`
* {func}`jax.tree_unflatten` is deprecated in favor of {func}`jax.tree_util.tree_unflatten`
* The `sym_pos` argument of {func}`jax.scipy.linalg.solve` is deprecated in favor of `assume_a='pos'`,
following a similar deprecation in {func}`scipy.linalg.solve`.

jaxlib 0.3.15 (July 22, 2022)
* [GitHub commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jaxlib-v0.3.14...jaxlib-v0.3.15).

0.3.14

* [GitHub commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.3.13...jax-v0.3.14).
* Breaking changes
* {func}`jax.experimental.compilation_cache.initialize_cache` does not support
`max_cache_size_ bytes` anymore and will not get that as an input.
* `JAX_PLATFORMS` now raises an exception when platform initialization fails.
* Changes
* Fixed compatibility problems with NumPy 1.23.
* {func}`jax.numpy.linalg.slogdet` now accepts an optional `method` argument
that allows selection between an LU-decomposition based implementation and
an implementation based on QR decomposition.
* {func}`jax.numpy.linalg.qr` now supports `mode="raw"`.
* `pickle`, `copy.copy`, and `copy.deepcopy` now have more complete support when
used on jax arrays ({jax-issue}`10659`). In particular:
- `pickle` and `deepcopy` previously returned `np.ndarray` objects when used
on a `DeviceArray`; now `DeviceArray` objects are returned. For `deepcopy`,
the copied array is on the same device as the original. For `pickle` the
deserialized array will be on the default device.
- Within function transformations (i.e. traced code), `deepcopy` and `copy`
previously were no-ops. Now they use the same mechanism as `DeviceArray.copy()`.
- Calling `pickle` on a traced array now results in an explicit
`ConcretizationTypeError`.
* The implementation of singular value decomposition (SVD) and
symmetric/Hermitian eigendecomposition should be significantly faster on
TPU, especially for matrices above 1000x1000 or so. Both now use a spectral
divide-and-conquer algorithm for eigendecomposition (QDWH-eig).
* {func}`jax.numpy.ldexp` no longer silently promotes all inputs to float64,
instead it promotes to float32 for integer inputs of size int32 or smaller
({jax-issue}`10921`).
* Add a `create_perfetto_link` option to {func}`jax.profiler.start_trace` and
{func}`jax.profiler.start_trace`. When used, the profiler will generate a
link to the Perfetto UI to view the trace.
* Changed the semantics of {func}`jax.profiler.start_server(...)` to store the
keepalive globally, rather than requiring the user to keep a reference to
it.
* Added {func}`jax.random.generalized_normal`.
* Added {func}`jax.random.ball`.
* Added {func}`jax.default_device`.
* Added a `python -m jax.collect_profile` script to manually capture program
traces as an alternative to the Tensorboard UI.
* Added a `jax.named_scope` context manager that adds profiler metadata to
Python programs (similar to `jax.named_call`).
* In scatter-update operations (i.e. :attr:`jax.numpy.ndarray.at`), unsafe implicit
dtype casts are deprecated, and now result in a `FutureWarning`.
In a future release, this will become an error. An example of an unsafe implicit
cast is `jnp.zeros(4, dtype=int).at[0].set(1.5)`, in which `1.5` previously was
silently truncated to `1`.
* {func}`jax.experimental.compilation_cache.initialize_cache` now supports gcs
bucket path as input.
* Added {func}`jax.scipy.stats.gennorm`.
* {func}`jax.numpy.roots` is now better behaved when `strip_zeros=False` when
coefficients have leading zeros ({jax-issue}`11215`).

jaxlib 0.3.14 (June 27, 2022)
* [GitHub commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jaxlib-v0.3.10...jaxlib-v0.3.14).
* x86-64 Mac wheels now require Mac OS 10.14 (Mojave) or newer. Mac OS 10.14
was released in 2018, so this should not be a very onerous requirement.
* The bundled version of NCCL was updated to 2.12.12, fixing some deadlocks.
* The Python flatbuffers package is no longer a dependency of jaxlib.

0.3.13

* [GitHub commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.3.12...jax-v0.3.13).

0.3.12

* [GitHub commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.3.11...jax-v0.3.12).
* Changes
* Fixes [10717](https://github.com/google/jax/issues/10717).

0.3.11

* [GitHub commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.3.10...jax-v0.3.11).
* Changes
* {func}`jax.lax.eigh` now accepts an optional `sort_eigenvalues` argument
that allows users to opt out of eigenvalue sorting on TPU.
* Deprecations
* Non-array arguments to functions in {mod}`jax.lax.linalg` are now marked
keyword-only. As a backward-compatibility step passing keyword-only
arguments positionally yields a warning, but in a future JAX release passing
keyword-only arguments positionally will fail.
However, most users should prefer to use {mod}`jax.numpy.linalg` instead.
* {func}`jax.scipy.linalg.polar_unitary`, which was a JAX extension to the
scipy API, is deprecated. Use {func}`jax.scipy.linalg.polar` instead.

0.3.10

* [GitHub commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.3.9...jax-v0.3.10).

jaxlib 0.3.10 (May 3, 2022)
* [GitHub commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jaxlib-v0.3.7...jaxlib-v0.3.10).
* Changes
* [TF commit](https://github.com/tensorflow/tensorflow/commit/207d50d253e11c3a3430a700af478a1d524a779a)
fixes an issue in the MHLO canonicalizer that caused constant folding to
take a long time or crash for certain programs.

0.3.9

* [GitHub commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.3.8...jax-v0.3.9).
* Changes
* Added support for fully asynchronous checkpointing for GlobalDeviceArray.

0.3.8

* [GitHub commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.3.7...jax-v0.3.8).
* Changes
* {func}`jax.numpy.linalg.svd` on TPUs uses a qdwh-svd solver.
* {func}`jax.numpy.linalg.cond` on TPUs now accepts complex input.
* {func}`jax.numpy.linalg.pinv` on TPUs now accepts complex input.
* {func}`jax.numpy.linalg.matrix_rank` on TPUs now accepts complex input.
* {func}`jax.scipy.cluster.vq.vq` has been added.
* `jax.experimental.maps.mesh` has been deleted.
Please use `jax.experimental.maps.Mesh`. Please see https://jax.readthedocs.io/en/latest/_autosummary/jax.experimental.maps.Mesh.html#jax.experimental.maps.Mesh
for more information.
* {func}`jax.scipy.linalg.qr` now returns a length-1 tuple rather than the raw array when
`mode='r'`, in order to match the behavior of `scipy.linalg.qr` ({jax-issue}`10452`)
* {func}`jax.numpy.take_along_axis` now takes an optional `mode` parameter
that specifies the behavior of out-of-bounds indexing. By default,
invalid values (e.g., NaN) will be returned for out-of-bounds indices. In
previous versions of JAX, invalid indices were clamped into range. The
previous behavior can be restored by passing `mode="clip"`.
* {func}`jax.numpy.take` now defaults to `mode="fill"`, which returns
invalid values (e.g., NaN) for out-of-bounds indices.
* Scatter operations, such as `x.at[...].set(...)`, now have `"drop"` semantics.
This has no effect on the scatter operation itself, but it means that when
differentiated the gradient of a scatter will yield zero cotangents for
out-of-bounds indices. Previously out-of-bounds indices were clamped into
range for the gradient, which was not mathematically correct.
* {func}`jax.numpy.take_along_axis` now raises a `TypeError` if its indices
are not of an integer type, matching the behavior of
{func}`numpy.take_along_axis`. Previously non-integer indices were silently
cast to integers.
* {func}`jax.numpy.ravel_multi_index` now raises a `TypeError` if its `dims` argument
is not of an integer type, matching the behavior of
{func}`numpy.ravel_multi_index`. Previously non-integer `dims` was silently
cast to integers.
* {func}`jax.numpy.split` now raises a `TypeError` if its `axis` argument
is not of an integer type, matching the behavior of
{func}`numpy.split`. Previously non-integer `axis` was silently
cast to integers.
* {func}`jax.numpy.indices` now raises a `TypeError` if its dimensions
are not of an integer type, matching the behavior of
{func}`numpy.indices`. Previously non-integer dimensions were silently
cast to integers.
* {func}`jax.numpy.diag` now raises a `TypeError` if its `k` argument
is not of an integer type, matching the behavior of
{func}`numpy.diag`. Previously non-integer `k` was silently
cast to integers.
* Added {func}`jax.random.orthogonal`.
* Deprecations
* Many functions and objects available in {mod}`jax.test_util` are now deprecated and will raise a
warning on import. This includes `cases_from_list`, `check_close`, `check_eq`, `device_under_test`,
`format_shape_dtype_string`, `rand_uniform`, `skip_on_devices`, `with_config`, `xla_bridge`, and
`_default_tolerance` ({jax-issue}`10389`). These, along with previously-deprecated `JaxTestCase`,
`JaxTestLoader`, and `BufferDonationTestCase`, will be removed in a future JAX release.
Most of these utilites can be replaced by calls to standard python & numpy testing utilities found
in e.g. {mod}`unittest`, {mod}`absl.testing`, {mod}`numpy.testing`, etc. JAX-specific functionality
such as device checking can be replaced through the use of public APIs such as {func}`jax.devices`.
Many of the deprecated utilities will still exist in {mod}`jax._src.test_util`, but these are not
public APIs and as such may be changed or removed without notice in future releases.

0.3.7

* [GitHub
commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.3.6...jax-v0.3.7).
* Changes:
* Fixed a performance problem if the indices passed to
{func}`jax.numpy.take_along_axis` were broadcasted ({jax-issue}`10281`).
* {func}`jax.scipy.special.expit` and {func}`jax.scipy.special.logit` now
require their arguments to be scalars or JAX arrays. They also now promote
integer arguments to floating point.
* The `DeviceArray.tile()` method is deprecated, because numpy arrays do not have a
`tile()` method. As a replacement for this, use {func}`jax.numpy.tile`
({jax-issue}`10266`).

jaxlib 0.3.7 (April 15, 2022)
* Changes:
* Linux wheels are now built conforming to the `manylinux2014` standard, instead
of `manylinux2010`.

0.3.6

* [GitHub
commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.3.5...jax-v0.3.6).
* Changes:
* Upgraded libtpu wheel to a version that fixes a hang when initializing a TPU
pod. Fixes [10218](https://github.com/google/jax/issues/10218).
* Deprecations:
* {mod}`jax.experimental.loops` is being deprecated. See {jax-issue}`10278`
for an alternative API.

0.3.5

* [GitHub
commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.3.4...jax-v0.3.5).
* Changes:
* added {func}`jax.random.loggamma` & improved behavior of {func}`jax.random.beta`
and {func}`jax.random.dirichlet` for small parameter values ({jax-issue}`9906`).
* the private `lax_numpy` submodule is no longer exposed in the `jax.numpy` namespace ({jax-issue}`10029`).
* added array creation routines {func}`jax.numpy.frombuffer`, {func}`jax.numpy.fromfunction`,
and {func}`jax.numpy.fromstring` ({jax-issue}`10049`).
* `DeviceArray.copy()` now returns a `DeviceArray` rather than a `np.ndarray` ({jax-issue}`10069`)
* added {func}`jax.scipy.linalg.rsf2csf`
* `jax.experimental.sharded_jit` has been deprecated and will be removed soon.
* Deprecations:
* {func}`jax.nn.normalize` is being deprecated. Use {func}`jax.nn.standardize` instead ({jax-issue}`9899`).
* {func}`jax.tree_util.tree_multimap` is deprecated. Use {func}`jax.tree_util.tree_map` instead ({jax-issue}`5746`).
* `jax.experimental.sharded_jit` is deprecated. Use `pjit` instead.

jaxlib 0.3.5 (April 7, 2022)
* Bug fixes
* Fixed a bug where double-precision complex-to-real IRFFTs would mutate their
input buffers on GPU ({jax-issue}`9946`).
* Fixed incorrect constant-folding of complex scatters ({jax-issue}`10159`)

0.3.4

* [GitHub
commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.3.3...jax-v0.3.4).

0.3.3

* [GitHub
commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.3.2...jax-v0.3.3).

0.3.2

* [GitHub
commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.3.1...jax-v0.3.2).
* Changes:
* The functions `jax.ops.index_update`, `jax.ops.index_add`, which were
deprecated in 0.2.22, have been removed. Please use
[the `.at` property on JAX arrays](https://jax.readthedocs.io/en/latest/_autosummary/jax.numpy.ndarray.at.html)
instead, e.g., `x.at[idx].set(y)`.
* Moved `jax.experimental.ann.approx_*_k` into `jax.lax`. These functions are
optimized alternatives to `jax.lax.top_k`.
* {func}`jax.numpy.broadcast_arrays` and {func}`jax.numpy.broadcast_to` now require scalar
or array-like inputs, and will fail if they are passed lists (part of {jax-issue}`7737`).
* The standard jax[tpu] install can now be used with Cloud TPU v4 VMs.
* `pjit` now works on CPU (in addition to previous TPU and GPU support).


jaxlib 0.3.2 (March 16, 2022)
* Changes
* ``XlaComputation.as_hlo_text()`` now supports printing large constants by
passing boolean flag ``print_large_constants=True``.
* Deprecations:
* The ``.block_host_until_ready()`` method on JAX arrays has been deprecated.
Use ``.block_until_ready()`` instead.

0.3.1

* [GitHub
commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.3.0...jax-v0.3.1).

* Changes:
* `jax.test_util.JaxTestCase` and `jax.test_util.JaxTestLoader` are now deprecated.
The suggested replacement is to use `parametrized.TestCase` directly. For tests that
rely on custom asserts such as `JaxTestCase.assertAllClose()`, the suggested replacement
is to use standard numpy testing utilities such as {func}`numpy.testing.assert_allclose()`,
which work directly with JAX arrays ({jax-issue}`9620`).
* `jax.test_util.JaxTestCase` now sets `jax_numpy_rank_promotion='raise'` by default
({jax-issue}`9562`). To recover the previous behavior, use the new
`jax.test_util.with_config` decorator:
python
jtu.with_config(jax_numpy_rank_promotion='allow')
class MyTestCase(jtu.JaxTestCase):
...

* Added {func}`jax.scipy.linalg.schur`, {func}`jax.scipy.linalg.sqrtm`,
{func}`jax.scipy.signal.csd`, {func}`jax.scipy.signal.stft`,
{func}`jax.scipy.signal.welch`.

0.3.0

* [GitHub
commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.2.28...jax-v0.3.0).

* Changes
* jax version has been bumped to 0.3.0. Please see the [design doc](https://jax.readthedocs.io/en/latest/design_notes/jax_versioning.html)
for the explanation.

jaxlib 0.3.0 (Feb 10, 2022)
* Changes
* Bazel 5.0.0 is now required to build jaxlib.
* jaxlib version has been bumped to 0.3.0. Please see the [design doc](https://jax.readthedocs.io/en/latest/design_notes/jax_versioning.html)
for the explanation.

0.2.28

* [GitHub
commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.2.27...jax-v0.2.28).
* `jax.jit(f).lower(...).compiler_ir()` now defaults to the MHLO dialect if no
`dialect=` is passed.
* The `jax.jit(f).lower(...).compiler_ir(dialect='mhlo')` now returns an MLIR
`ir.Module` object instead of its string representation.

jaxlib 0.1.76 (Jan 27, 2022)

* New features
* Includes precompiled SASS for NVidia compute capability 8.0 GPUS
(e.g. A100). Removes precompiled SASS for compute capability 6.1 so as not
to increase the number of compute capabilities: GPUs with compute capability
6.1 can use the 6.0 SASS.
* With jaxlib 0.1.76, JAX uses the MHLO MLIR dialect as its primary target compiler IR
by default.
* Breaking changes
* Support for NumPy 1.18 has been dropped, per the
[deprecation policy](https://jax.readthedocs.io/en/latest/deprecation.html).
Please upgrade to a supported NumPy version.
* Bug fixes
* Fixed a bug where apparently identical pytreedef objects constructed by different routes
do not compare as equal (9066).
* The JAX jit cache requires two static arguments to have identical types for a cache hit (9311).

0.2.27

* [GitHub commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.2.26...jax-v0.2.27).

* Breaking changes:
* Support for NumPy 1.18 has been dropped, per the
[deprecation policy](https://jax.readthedocs.io/en/latest/deprecation.html).
Please upgrade to a supported NumPy version.
* The host_callback primitives have been simplified to drop the
special autodiff handling for hcb.id_tap and id_print.
From now on, only the primals are tapped. The old behavior can be
obtained (for a limited time) by setting the ``JAX_HOST_CALLBACK_AD_TRANSFORMS``
environment variable, or the --flax_host_callback_ad_transforms flag.
Additionally, added documentation for how to implement the old behavior
using JAX custom AD APIs ({jax-issue}`8678`).
* Sorting now matches the behavior of NumPy for ``0.0`` and ``NaN`` regardless of the
bit representation. In particular, ``0.0`` and ``-0.0`` are now treated as equivalent,
where previously ``-0.0`` was treated as less than ``0.0``. Additionally all ``NaN``
representations are now treated as equivalent and sorted to the end of the array.
Previously negative ``NaN`` values were sorted to the front of the array, and ``NaN``
values with different internal bit representations were not treated as equivalent, and
were sorted according to those bit patterns ({jax-issue}`9178`).
* {func}`jax.numpy.unique` now treats ``NaN`` values in the same way as `np.unique` in
NumPy versions 1.21 and newer: at most one ``NaN`` value will appear in the uniquified
output ({jax-issue}`9184`).

* Bug fixes:
* host_callback now supports ad_checkpoint.checkpoint ({jax-issue}`8907`).

* New features:
* add `jax.block_until_ready` ({jax-issue}`8941)
* Added a new debugging flag/environment variable `JAX_DUMP_IR_TO=/path`.
If set, JAX dumps the MHLO/HLO IR it generates for each computation to a
file under the given path.
* Added `jax.ensure_compile_time_eval` to the public api ({jax-issue}`7987`).
* jax2tf now supports a flag jax2tf_associative_scan_reductions to change
the lowering for associative reductions, e.g., jnp.cumsum, to behave
like JAX on CPU and GPU (to use an associative scan). See the jax2tf README
for more details ({jax-issue}`9189`).


jaxlib 0.1.75 (Dec 8, 2021)
* New features:
* Support for python 3.10.

0.2.26

* [GitHub
commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.2.25...jax-v0.2.26).

* Bug fixes:
* Out-of-bounds indices to `jax.ops.segment_sum` will now be handled with
`FILL_OR_DROP` semantics, as documented. This primarily afects the
reverse-mode derivative, where gradients corresponding to out-of-bounds
indices will now be returned as 0. (8634).
* jax2tf will force the converted code to use XLA for the code fragments
under jax.jit, e.g., most jax.numpy functions ({jax-issue}`7839`).

jaxlib 0.1.74 (Nov 17, 2021)
* Enabled peer-to-peer copies between GPUs. Previously, GPU copies were bounced via
the host, which is usually slower.
* Added experimental MLIR Python bindings for use by JAX.

0.2.25

* [GitHub
commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.2.24...jax-v0.2.25).

* New features:
* (Experimental) `jax.distributed.initialize` exposes multi-host GPU backend.
* `jax.random.permutation` supports new `independent` keyword argument
({jax-issue}`8430`)
* Breaking changes
* Moved `jax.experimental.stax` to `jax.example_libraries.stax`
* Moved `jax.experimental.optimizers` to `jax.example_libraries.optimizers`
* New features:
* Added `jax.lax.linalg.qdwh`.

0.2.24

* [GitHub
commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.2.22...jax-v0.2.24).

* New features:
* `jax.random.choice` and `jax.random.permutation` now support
multidimensional arrays and an optional `axis` argument ({jax-issue}`8158`)
* Breaking changes:
* `jax.numpy.take` and `jax.numpy.take_along_axis` now require array-like inputs
(see {jax-issue}`7737`)

jaxlib 0.1.73 (Oct 18, 2021)

* Multiple cuDNN versions are now supported for jaxlib GPU `cuda11` wheels.
* cuDNN 8.2 or newer. We recommend using the cuDNN 8.2 wheel if your cuDNN
installation is new enough, since it supports additional functionality.
* cuDNN 8.0.5 or newer.

* Breaking changes:
* The install commands for GPU jaxlib are as follows:

bash
pip install --upgrade pip

Installs the wheel compatible with CUDA 11 and cuDNN 8.2 or newer.
pip install --upgrade "jax[cuda]" -f https://storage.googleapis.com/jax-releases/jax_releases.html

Installs the wheel compatible with Cuda 11 and cudnn 8.2 or newer.
pip install jax[cuda11_cudnn82] -f https://storage.googleapis.com/jax-releases/jax_releases.html

Installs the wheel compatible with Cuda 11 and cudnn 8.0.5 or newer.
pip install jax[cuda11_cudnn805] -f https://storage.googleapis.com/jax-releases/jax_releases.html

0.2.22

* [GitHub
commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.2.21...jax-v0.2.22).
* Breaking Changes
* Static arguments to `jax.pmap` must now be hashable.

Unhashable static arguments have long been disallowed on `jax.jit`, but they
were still permitted on `jax.pmap`; `jax.pmap` compared unhashable static
arguments using object identity.

This behavior is a footgun, since comparing arguments using
object identity leads to recompilation each time the object identity
changes. Instead, we now ban unhashable arguments: if a user of `jax.pmap`
wants to compare static arguments by object identity, they can define
`__hash__` and `__eq__` methods on their objects that do that, or wrap their
objects in an object that has those operations with object identity
semantics. Another option is to use `functools.partial` to encapsulate the
unhashable static arguments into the function object.
* `jax.util.partial` was an accidental export that has now been removed. Use
`functools.partial` from the Python standard library instead.
* Deprecations
* The functions `jax.ops.index_update`, `jax.ops.index_add` etc. are
deprecated and will be removed in a future JAX release. Please use
[the `.at` property on JAX arrays](https://jax.readthedocs.io/en/latest/_autosummary/jax.numpy.ndarray.at.html)
instead, e.g., `x.at[idx].set(y)`. For now, these functions produce a
`DeprecationWarning`.
* New features:
* An optimized C++ code-path improving the dispatch time for `pmap` is now the
default when using jaxlib 0.1.72 or newer. The feature can be disabled using
the `--experimental_cpp_pmap` flag (or `JAX_CPP_PMAP` environment variable).
* `jax.numpy.unique` now supports an optional `fill_value` argument ({jax-issue}`8121`)

jaxlib 0.1.72 (Oct 12, 2021)
* Breaking changes:
* Support for CUDA 10.2 and CUDA 10.1 has been dropped. Jaxlib now supports
CUDA 11.1+.
* Bug fixes:
* Fixes https://github.com/google/jax/issues/7461, which caused wrong
outputs on all platforms due to incorrect buffer aliasing inside the XLA
compiler.

0.2.21

* [GitHub
commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.2.20...jax-v0.2.21).
* Breaking Changes
* `jax.api` has been removed. Functions that were available as `jax.api.*`
were aliases for functions in `jax.*`; please use the functions in
`jax.*` instead.
* `jax.partial`, and `jax.lax.partial` were accidental exports that have now
been removed. Use `functools.partial` from the Python standard library
instead.
* Boolean scalar indices now raise a `TypeError`; previously this silently
returned wrong results ({jax-issue}`7925`).
* Many more `jax.numpy` functions now require array-like inputs, and will error
if passed a list ({jax-issue}`7747` {jax-issue}`7802` {jax-issue}`7907`).
See {jax-issue}`7737` for a discussion of the rationale behind this change.
* When inside a transformation such as `jax.jit`, `jax.numpy.array` always
stages the array it produces into the traced computation. Previously
`jax.numpy.array` would sometimes produce a on-device array, even under
a `jax.jit` decorator. This change may break code that used JAX arrays to
perform shape or index computations that must be known statically; the
workaround is to perform such computations using classic NumPy arrays
instead.
* `jnp.ndarray` is now a true base-class for JAX arrays. In particular, this
means that for a standard numpy array `x`, `isinstance(x, jnp.ndarray)` will
now return `False` ({jax-issue}`7927`).
* New features:
* Added {func}`jax.numpy.insert` implementation ({jax-issue}`7936`).

0.2.20

* [GitHub
commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.2.19...jax-v0.2.20).
* Breaking Changes
* `jnp.poly*` functions now require array-like inputs ({jax-issue}`7732`)
* `jnp.unique` and other set-like operations now require array-like inputs
({jax-issue}`7662`)

jaxlib 0.1.71 (Sep 1, 2021)
* Breaking changes:
* Support for CUDA 11.0 and CUDA 10.1 has been dropped. Jaxlib now supports
CUDA 10.2 and CUDA 11.1+.

0.2.19

* [GitHub
commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.2.18...jax-v0.2.19).
* Breaking changes:
* Support for NumPy 1.17 has been dropped, per the
[deprecation policy](https://jax.readthedocs.io/en/latest/deprecation.html).
Please upgrade to a supported NumPy version.
* The `jit` decorator has been added around the implementation of a number of
operators on JAX arrays. This speeds up dispatch times for common
operators such as `+`.

This change should largely be transparent to most users. However, there is
one known behavioral change, which is that large integer constants may now
produce an error when passed directly to a JAX operator
(e.g., `x + 2**40`). The workaround is to cast the constant to an
explicit type (e.g., `np.float64(2**40)`).
* New features:
* Improved the support for shape polymorphism in jax2tf for operations that
need to use a dimension size in array computation, e.g., `jnp.mean`.
({jax-issue}`7317`)
* Bug fixes:
* Some leaked trace errors from the previous release ({jax-issue}`7613`)

jaxlib 0.1.70 (Aug 9, 2021)
* Breaking changes:
* Support for Python 3.6 has been dropped, per the
[deprecation policy](https://jax.readthedocs.io/en/latest/deprecation.html).
Please upgrade to a supported Python version.
* Support for NumPy 1.17 has been dropped, per the
[deprecation policy](https://jax.readthedocs.io/en/latest/deprecation.html).
Please upgrade to a supported NumPy version.

* The host_callback mechanism now uses one thread per local device for
making the calls to the Python callbacks. Previously there was a single
thread for all devices. This means that the callbacks may now be called
interleaved. The callbacks corresponding to one device will still be
called in sequence.

0.2.18

* [GitHub commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.2.17...jax-v0.2.18).

* Breaking changes:
* Support for Python 3.6 has been dropped, per the
[deprecation policy](https://jax.readthedocs.io/en/latest/deprecation.html).
Please upgrade to a supported Python version.
* The minimum jaxlib version is now 0.1.69.
* The `backend` argument to {py:func}`jax.dlpack.from_dlpack` has been
removed.

* New features:
* Added a polar decomposition ({py:func}`jax.scipy.linalg.polar`).

* Bug fixes:
* Tightened the checks for lax.argmin and lax.argmax to ensure they are
not used with an invalid `axis` value, or with an empty reduction dimension.
({jax-issue}`7196`)


jaxlib 0.1.69 (July 9 2021)
* Fix bugs in TFRT CPU backend that results in incorrect results.

0.2.17

* [GitHub commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.2.16...jax-v0.2.17).
* Bug fixes:
* Default to the older "stream_executor" CPU runtime for jaxlib <= 0.1.68
to work around 7229, which caused wrong outputs on CPU due to a concurrency
problem.
* New features:
* New SciPy function {py:func}`jax.scipy.special.sph_harm`.
* Reverse-mode autodiff functions ({func}`jax.grad`,
{func}`jax.value_and_grad`, {func}`jax.vjp`, and
{func}`jax.linear_transpose`) support a parameter that indicates which named
axes should be summed over in the backward pass if they were broadcasted
over in the forward pass. This enables use of these APIs in a
non-per-example way inside maps (initially only
{func}`jax.experimental.maps.xmap`) ({jax-issue}`6950`).

0.2.16

* [GitHub commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.2.15...jax-v0.2.16).

0.2.15

* [GitHub commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.2.14...jax-v0.2.15).
* New features:
* [7042](https://github.com/google/jax/pull/7042) Turned on TFRT CPU backend
with significant dispatch performance improvements on CPU.
* The {func}`jax2tf.convert` supports inequalities and min/max for booleans
({jax-issue}`6956`).
* New SciPy function {py:func}`jax.scipy.special.lpmn_values`.

* Breaking changes:
* Support for NumPy 1.16 has been dropped, per the
[deprecation policy](https://jax.readthedocs.io/en/latest/deprecation.html).

* Bug fixes:
* Fixed bug that prevented round-tripping from JAX to TF and back:
`jax2tf.call_tf(jax2tf.convert)` ({jax-issue}`6947`).

jaxlib 0.1.68 (June 23 2021)
* Bug fixes:
* Fixed bug in TFRT CPU backend that gets nans when transfer TPU buffer to
CPU.

0.2.14

* [GitHub commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.2.13...jax-v0.2.14).
* New features:
* The {func}`jax2tf.convert` now has support for `pjit` and `sharded_jit`.
* A new configuration option JAX_TRACEBACK_FILTERING controls how JAX filters
tracebacks.
* A new traceback filtering mode using `__tracebackhide__` is now enabled by
default in sufficiently recent versions of IPython.
* The {func}`jax2tf.convert` supports shape polymorphism even when the
unknown dimensions are used in arithmetic operations, e.g., `jnp.reshape(-1)`
({jax-issue}`6827`).
* The {func}`jax2tf.convert` generates custom attributes with location information
in TF ops. The code that XLA generates after jax2tf
has the same location information as JAX/XLA.
* New SciPy function {py:func}`jax.scipy.special.lpmn`.

* Bug fixes:
* The {func}`jax2tf.convert` now ensures that it uses the same typing rules
for Python scalars and for choosing 32-bit vs. 64-bit computations
as JAX ({jax-issue}`6883`).
* The {func}`jax2tf.convert` now scopes the `enable_xla` conversion parameter
properly to apply only during the just-in-time conversion
({jax-issue}`6720`).
* The {func}`jax2tf.convert` now converts `lax.dot_general` using the
`XlaDot` TensorFlow op, for better fidelity w.r.t. JAX numerical precision
({jax-issue}`6717`).
* The {func}`jax2tf.convert` now has support for inequality comparisons and
min/max for complex numbers ({jax-issue}`6892`).

jaxlib 0.1.67 (May 17 2021)

jaxlib 0.1.66 (May 11 2021)

* New features:
* CUDA 11.1 wheels are now supported on all CUDA 11 versions 11.1 or higher.

NVidia now promises compatibility between CUDA minor releases starting with
CUDA 11.1. This means that JAX can release a single CUDA 11.1 wheel that
is compatible with CUDA 11.2 and 11.3.

There is no longer a separate jaxlib release for CUDA 11.2 (or higher); use
the CUDA 11.1 wheel for those versions (cuda111).
* Jaxlib now bundles `libdevice.10.bc` in CUDA wheels. There should be no need
to point JAX to a CUDA installation to find this file.
* Added automatic support for static keyword arguments to the {func}`jit`
implementation.
* Added support for pretransformation exception traces.
* Initial support for pruning unused arguments from {func}`jit` -transformed
computations.
Pruning is still a work in progress.
* Improved the string representation of {class}`PyTreeDef` objects.
* Added support for XLA's variadic ReduceWindow.
* Bug fixes:
* Fixed a bug in the remote cloud TPU support when large numbers of arguments
are passed to a computation.
* Fix a bug that meant that JAX garbage collection was not triggered by
{func}`jit` transformed functions.

0.2.13

* [GitHub commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.2.12...jax-v0.2.13).
* New features:
* When combined with jaxlib 0.1.66, {func}`jax.jit` now supports static
keyword arguments. A new `static_argnames` option has been added to specify
keyword arguments as static.
* {func}`jax.nonzero` has a new optional `size` argument that allows it to
be used within `jit` ({jax-issue}`6501`)
* {func}`jax.numpy.unique` now supports the `axis` argument ({jax-issue}`6532`).
* {func}`jax.experimental.host_callback.call` now supports `pjit.pjit` ({jax-issue}`6569`).
* Added {func}`jax.scipy.linalg.eigh_tridiagonal` that computes the
eigenvalues of a tridiagonal matrix. Only eigenvalues are supported at
present.
* The order of the filtered and unfiltered stack traces in exceptions has been
changed. The traceback attached to an exception thrown from JAX-transformed
code is now filtered, with an `UnfilteredStackTrace` exception
containing the original trace as the `__cause__` of the filtered exception.
Filtered stack traces now also work with Python 3.6.
* If an exception is thrown by code that has been transformed by reverse-mode
automatic differentiation, JAX now attempts to attach as a `__cause__` of
the exception a `JaxStackTraceBeforeTransformation` object that contains the
stack trace that created the original operation in the forward pass.
Requires jaxlib 0.1.66.

* Breaking changes:
* The following function names have changed. There are still aliases, so this
should not break existing code, but the aliases will eventually be removed
so please change your code.
* `host_id` --> {func}`~jax.process_index`
* `host_count` --> {func}`~jax.process_count`
* `host_ids` --> `range(jax.process_count())`
* Similarly, the argument to {func}`~jax.local_devices` has been renamed from
`host_id` to `process_index`.
* Arguments to {func}`jax.jit` other than the function are now marked as
keyword-only. This change is to prevent accidental breakage when arguments
are added to `jit`.
* Bug fixes:
* The {func}`jax2tf.convert` now works in presence of gradients for functions
with integer inputs ({jax-issue}`6360`).
* Fixed assertion failure in {func}`jax2tf.call_tf` when used with captured
`tf.Variable` ({jax-issue}`6572`).

jaxlib 0.1.65 (April 7 2021)

0.2.12

* [GitHub commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.2.11...v0.2.12).
* New features
* New profiling APIs: {func}`jax.profiler.start_trace`,
{func}`jax.profiler.stop_trace`, and {func}`jax.profiler.trace`
* {func}`jax.lax.reduce` is now differentiable.
* Breaking changes:
* The minimum jaxlib version is now 0.1.64.
* Some profiler APIs names have been changed. There are still aliases, so this
should not break existing code, but the aliases will eventually be removed
so please change your code.
* `TraceContext` --> {func}`~jax.profiler.TraceAnnotation`
* `StepTraceContext` --> {func}`~jax.profiler.StepTraceAnnotation`
* `trace_function` --> {func}`~jax.profiler.annotate_function`
* Omnistaging can no longer be disabled. See [omnistaging](https://github.com/google/jax/blob/main/docs/design_notes/omnistaging.md)
for more information.
* Python integers larger than the maximum `int64` value will now lead to an overflow
in all cases, rather than being silently converted to `uint64` in some cases ({jax-issue}`6047`).
* Outside X64 mode, Python integers outside the range representable by `int32` will now lead to an
`OverflowError` rather than having their value silently truncated.
* Bug fixes:
* `host_callback` now supports empty arrays in arguments and results ({jax-issue}`6262`).
* {func}`jax.random.randint` clips rather than wraps of out-of-bounds limits, and can now generate
integers in the full range of the specified dtype ({jax-issue}`5868`)

0.2.11

* [GitHub
commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.2.10...jax-v0.2.11).
* New features:
* [6112](https://github.com/google/jax/pull/6112) added context managers:
`jax.enable_checks`, `jax.check_tracer_leaks`, `jax.debug_nans`,
`jax.debug_infs`, `jax.log_compiles`.
* [6085](https://github.com/google/jax/pull/6085) added `jnp.delete`

* Bug fixes:
* [6136](https://github.com/google/jax/pull/6136) generalized
`jax.flatten_util.ravel_pytree` to handle integer dtypes.
* [6129](https://github.com/google/jax/issues/6129) fixed a bug with handling
some constants like `enum.IntEnums`
* [6145](https://github.com/google/jax/pull/6145) fixed batching issues with
incomplete beta functions
* [6014](https://github.com/google/jax/pull/6014) fixed H2D transfers during
tracing
* [6165](https://github.com/google/jax/pull/6165) avoids OverflowErrors when
converting some large Python integers to floats
* Breaking changes:
* The minimum jaxlib version is now 0.1.62.


jaxlib 0.1.64 (March 18 2021)

jaxlib 0.1.63 (March 17 2021)

0.2.10

* [GitHub commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.2.9...jax-v0.2.10).
* New features:
* {func}`jax.scipy.stats.chi2` is now available as a distribution with logpdf and pdf methods.
* {func}`jax.scipy.stats.betabinom` is now available as a distribution with logpmf and pmf methods.
* Added {func}`jax.experimental.jax2tf.call_tf` to call TensorFlow functions
from JAX ({jax-issue}`5627`)
and [README](https://github.com/google/jax/blob/main/jax/experimental/jax2tf/README.md#calling-tensorflow-functions-from-jax)).
* Extended the batching rule for `lax.pad` to support batching of the padding values.
* Bug fixes:
* {func}`jax.numpy.take` properly handles negative indices ({jax-issue}`5768`)
* Breaking changes:
* JAX's promotion rules were adjusted to make promotion more consistent and
invariant to JIT. In particular, binary operations can now result in weakly-typed
values when appropriate. The main user-visible effect of the change is that
some operations result in outputs of different precision than before; for
example the expression `jnp.bfloat16(1) + 0.1 * jnp.arange(10)`
previously returned a `float64` array, and now returns a `bfloat16` array.
JAX's type promotion behavior is described at {ref}`type-promotion`.
* {func}`jax.numpy.linspace` now computes the floor of integer values, i.e.,
rounding towards -inf rather than 0. This change was made to match NumPy
1.20.0.
* {func}`jax.numpy.i0` no longer accepts complex numbers. Previously the
function computed the absolute value of complex arguments. This change was
made to match the semantics of NumPy 1.20.0.
* Several {mod}`jax.numpy` functions no longer accept tuples or lists in place
of array arguments: {func}`jax.numpy.pad`, :func`jax.numpy.ravel`,
{func}`jax.numpy.repeat`, {func}`jax.numpy.reshape`.
In general, {mod}`jax.numpy` functions should be used with scalars or array arguments.

jaxlib 0.1.62 (March 9 2021)

* New features:
* jaxlib wheels are now built to require AVX instructions on x86-64 machines
by default. If you want to use JAX on a machine that doesn't support AVX,
you can build a jaxlib from source using the `--target_cpu_features` flag
to `build.py`. `--target_cpu_features` also replaces
`--enable_march_native`.

jaxlib 0.1.61 (February 12 2021)

jaxlib 0.1.60 (Febuary 3 2021)

* Bug fixes:
* Fixed a memory leak when converting CPU DeviceArrays to NumPy arrays. The
memory leak was present in jaxlib releases 0.1.58 and 0.1.59.
* `bool`, `int8`, and `uint8` are now considered safe to cast to
`bfloat16` NumPy extension type.

0.2.9

* [GitHub commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.2.8...jax-v0.2.9).
* New features:
* Extend the {mod}`jax.experimental.loops` module with support for pytrees. Improved
error checking and error messages.
* Add {func}`jax.experimental.enable_x64` and {func}`jax.experimental.disable_x64`.
These are context managers which allow X64 mode to be temporarily enabled/disabled
within a session.
* Breaking changes:
* {func}`jax.ops.segment_sum` now drops segment IDs that are out of range rather
than wrapping them into the segment ID space. This was done for performance
reasons.

jaxlib 0.1.59 (January 15 2021)

0.2.8

* [GitHub commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.2.7...jax-v0.2.8).
* New features:
* Add {func}`jax.closure_convert` for use with higher-order custom
derivative functions. ({jax-issue}`5244`)
* Add {func}`jax.experimental.host_callback.call` to call a custom Python
function on the host and return a result to the device computation.
({jax-issue}`5243`)
* Bug fixes:
* `jax.numpy.arccosh` now returns the same branch as `numpy.arccosh` for
complex inputs ({jax-issue}`5156`)
* `host_callback.id_tap` now works for `jax.pmap` also. There is an
optional parameter for `id_tap` and `id_print` to request that the
device from which the value is tapped be passed as a keyword argument
to the tap function ({jax-issue}`5182`).
* Breaking changes:
* `jax.numpy.pad` now takes keyword arguments. Positional argument `constant_values`
has been removed. In addition, passing unsupported keyword arguments raises an error.
* Changes for {func}`jax.experimental.host_callback.id_tap` ({jax-issue}`5243`):
* Removed support for `kwargs` for {func}`jax.experimental.host_callback.id_tap`.
(This support has been deprecated for a few months.)
* Changed the printing of tuples for {func}`jax.experimental.host_callback.id_print`
to use '(' instead of '['.
* Changed the {func}`jax.experimental.host_callback.id_print` in presence of JVP
to print a pair of primal and tangent. Previously, there were two separate
print operations for the primals and the tangent.
* `host_callback.outfeed_receiver` has been removed (it is not necessary,
and was deprecated a few months ago).
* New features:
* New flag for debugging `inf`, analagous to that for `NaN` ({jax-issue}`5224`).

0.2.7

* [GitHub commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.2.6...jax-v0.2.7).
* New features:
* Add `jax.device_put_replicated`
* Add multi-host support to `jax.experimental.sharded_jit`
* Add support for differentiating eigenvalues computed by `jax.numpy.linalg.eig`
* Add support for building on Windows platforms
* Add support for general in_axes and out_axes in `jax.pmap`
* Add complex support for `jax.numpy.linalg.slogdet`
* Bug fixes:
* Fix higher-than-second order derivatives of `jax.numpy.sinc` at zero
* Fix some hard-to-hit bugs around symbolic zeros in transpose rules
* Breaking changes:
* `jax.experimental.optix` has been deleted, in favor of the standalone
`optax` Python package.
* indexing of JAX arrays with non-tuple sequences now raises a `TypeError`. This type of indexing
has been deprecated in Numpy since v1.16, and in JAX since v0.2.4.
See {jax-issue}`4564`.

0.2.6

* [GitHub commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.2.5...jax-v0.2.6).
* New Features:
* Add support for shape-polymorphic tracing for the jax.experimental.jax2tf converter.
See [README.md](https://github.com/google/jax/blob/main/jax/experimental/jax2tf/README.md).
* Breaking change cleanup

* Raise an error on non-hashable static arguments for jax.jit and
xla_computation. See [cb48f42](https://github.com/google/jax/commit/cb48f42).
* Improve consistency of type promotion behavior ({jax-issue}`4744`):
* Adding a complex Python scalar to a JAX floating point number respects the precision of
the JAX float. For example, `jnp.float32(1) + 1j` now returns `complex64`, where previously
it returned `complex128`.
* Results of type promotion with 3 or more terms involving uint64, a signed int, and a third type
are now independent of the order of arguments. For example:
`jnp.result_type(jnp.uint64, jnp.int64, jnp.float16)` and
`jnp.result_type(jnp.float16, jnp.uint64, jnp.int64)` both return `float16`, where previously
the first returned `float64` and the second returned `float16`.
* The contents of the (undocumented) `jax.lax_linalg` linear algebra module
are now exposed publicly as `jax.lax.linalg`.
* `jax.random.PRNGKey` now produces the same results in and out of JIT compilation
({jax-issue}`4877`).
This required changing the result for a given seed in a few particular cases:
* With `jax_enable_x64=False`, negative seeds passed as Python integers now return a different result
outside JIT mode. For example, `jax.random.PRNGKey(-1)` previously returned
`[4294967295, 4294967295]`, and now returns `[0, 4294967295]`. This matches the behavior in JIT.
* Seeds outside the range representable by `int64` outside JIT now result in an `OverflowError`
rather than a `TypeError`. This matches the behavior in JIT.

To recover the keys returned previously for negative integers with `jax_enable_x64=False`
outside JIT, you can use:


key = random.PRNGKey(-1).at[0].set(0xFFFFFFFF)

* DeviceArray now raises `RuntimeError` instead of `ValueError` when trying
to access its value while it has been deleted.

jaxlib 0.1.58 (January 12ish 2021)

* JAX has dropped support for Python 3.5. Please upgrade to Python 3.6 or newer.
* Removed the internal function `lax._safe_mul`, which implemented the
convention `0. * nan == 0.`. This change means some programs when
differentiated will produce nans when they previously produced correct
values, though it ensures nans rather than silently incorrect results are
produced for other programs. See 2447 and 1052 for details.
* Added an `all_gather` parallel convenience function.
* More type annotations in core code.

jaxlib 0.1.42 (March 19, 2020)

* New features:
* {py:func}`jax.pmap` has `static_broadcast_argnums` argument which allows
the user to specify arguments that should be treated as compile-time
constants and should be broadcasted to all devices. It works analogously to
`static_argnums` in {py:func}`jax.jit`.
* Improved error messages for when tracers are mistakenly saved in global state.
* Added {py:func}`jax.nn.one_hot` utility function.
* Added {mod}`jax.experimental.jet` for exponentially faster
higher-order automatic differentiation.

0.1.59

* [GitHub commits](https://github.com/google/jax/compare/jax-v0.1.58...jax-v0.1.59).
* Breaking changes

* The minimum jaxlib version is now 0.1.38.
* Simplified {py:class}`Jaxpr` by removing the `Jaxpr.freevars` and
`Jaxpr.bound_subjaxprs`. The call primitives (`xla_call`, `xla_pmap`,
`sharded_call`, and `remat_call`) get a new parameter `call_jaxpr` with a
fully-closed (no `constvars`) jaxpr. Also, added a new field `call_primitive`
to primitives.
* New features:
* Reverse-mode automatic differentiation (e.g. `grad`) of `lax.cond`, making it
now differentiable in both modes ({jax-issue}`2091`)
* JAX now supports DLPack, which allows sharing CPU and GPU arrays in a
zero-copy way with other libraries, such as PyTorch.
* JAX GPU DeviceArrays now support `__cuda_array_interface__`, which is another
zero-copy protocol for sharing GPU arrays with other libraries such as CuPy
and Numba.
* JAX CPU device buffers now implement the Python buffer protocol, which allows
zero-copy buffer sharing between JAX and NumPy.
* Added JAX_SKIP_SLOW_TESTS environment variable to skip tests known as slow.

jaxlib 0.1.39 (February 11, 2020)

* Updates XLA.

> kernel.

Notable bug fixes

* With the Python 3 upgrade, JAX no longer depends on `fastcache`, which should
help with installation.
