Subject RE: Updates for 1.7.0 minor release
Date Mon, 06 Jul 2020 10:40:31 GMT
Hi dev,

Thanks everyone for your great support to backport the necessary fixes into 1.7.x and identify
& remove the (potential) block issue.
Today we've tagged the 1.7.0.rc0 for the upcoming 1.7.0 release, thanks for the help from
@Tao.

The artifacts will be uploaded later, and we'll move forward with the rest of release process.
Again, thanks for your patience.

Thanks,
-Ciyong

I agree with marking numpy operators being marked as experimental and going with v1.7 given
numpy is still in progress and mainly targeted beginning v2.0. And, v1.7 has several significant
features such as accelerator APIs.
