Subject Custom C++ Operators
Date Sat, 07 Dec 2019 18:49:55 GMT
Hi MXNet Community,

We have been working on adding support for custom C++ operators for a while and are happy
to announce that the initial functionality is now available for you to try out in the master

CustomOp support in MXNet began with allowing users to write custom operators in Python and
has been available for years. If you wanted to write a high-performance C++ operator you had
to do it by adding it to the MXNet source code, recompiling a custom version of MXNet, and
distributing that custom build. The Custom C++ operator support enhances this by enabling
users to write high-performance C++ operators and compile them separately from MXNet. This
frees up users from having to recompile MXNet from source and makes it easier to add custom
operators to suit their needs.

Heres a few pointers to get started:
1. Check out the overview in the cwiki [1]
2. Check out the PR [2]
3. You can try this out using the new nightly builds that are available in S3 [3]
4. Leave feedback on features to add or things to fix in a followup PR here [4]

Credit goes to everyone involved (in no particular order)

Special thanks to all the PR reviewers!
