Driver Requirements

Release 18.05 is based on CUDA 9, which requires NVIDIA Driver release 384.xx.

Key Features and Enhancements

This DIGITS container image version includes the following key features and enhancements.
  • NVIDIA DIGITS application version 18.05 is based on DIGITS version 6.1.1
  • Added a “Blob format” option to include and set store_blobs_in_old_format in solver.prototxt when training with NVCaffe. If you set the option to NVCaffe and backend framework is NVCaffe, solver.prototxt will include store_blobs_in_old_format=false. This option is the default and the caffemodel files generated from the training stage are not compatible with BVLC Caffe.
    If you set the option to Compatible, DIGITS sets store_blobs_in_old_format=true in solver.prototxt and caffemodel files are compatible with BVLC Caffe.
    Note: The store_blobs_in_old_format attribute is not recognized by BVLC Caffe, therefore, you have to remove that line when reusing solver.prototxt and fine-tuning with BVLC Caffe.
  • Updated resizing images algorithms to remove deprecated Python modules. Previous DIGITS called scipy.misc.imresize to perform a few image resizing steps. This API is marked as deprecated in scipy.misc. DIGITS now utilizes skimage.transform.resize.
  • Several updates and improvements on CI test scripts
  • Ubuntu 16.04 with April 2018 updates
