Subject Re: Propose to discontinue supporting Apache MXNet on Windows 7
Date Thu, 30 Aug 2018 06:21:28 GMT
Hi Hagay,

To minimize the impact to existing customers, I suggest we support MXNe 1.3
installation on Windows but defer all the bug fix to Windows 10 version and
ask users to migrate. Then we officially discontinue the support on Windows
7 in the 1.4 release.

Thanks,

Lin
