Torch Release Notes

These release notes describe the key features, software enhancements and improvements, known issues, and how to run this container for the 18.08 and earlier releases. The Torch framework is a scripting language that is based on a programming language called Lua. It is highly advised that you are familiar with Lua before using Torch. Torch provides numerous algorithms for deep learning networks mostly used by researchers. The Torch framework focuses on speeding up the time it takes to build a scientific algorithm. The Torch container is currently released monthly to provide you with the latest NVIDIA deep learning software libraries and GitHub code contributions that have been sent upstream; which are all tested, tuned, and optimized, however, we will be discontinuing container updates once the next major CUDA version is released.

To see a single view of the supported software and specific versions that come packaged with the frameworks based on the container image, see the Frameworks Support Matrix.
