• Fixed issue with incorrect version dependencies in 0.9.0

  • Added EmnistDataSetIterator Link

  • Numerical stability improvements to LossMCXENT / LossNegativeLogLikelihood with softmax (should reduce NaNs with very large activations)


  • Added runtime version checking for ND4J, DL4J, RL4J, Arbiter, DataVec Link

Known Issues

  • Deeplearning4j: Use of Evaluation class no-arg constructor (i.e., new Evaluation()) can result in accuracy/stats being reported as 0.0. Other Evaluation class constructors, and ComputationGraph/MultiLayerNetwork.evaluate(DataSetIterator) methods work as expected.

    • This also impacts Spark (distributed) evaluation: workaround is to replace sparkNet.evaluate(testData); with sparkNet.doEvaluation(testData, 64, new Evaluation(10))[0];, where 10 is the number of classes and 64 in the evaluation minibatch size to use.

  • SequenceRecordReaderDataSetIterator applies preprocessors (such as normalization) twice to each DataSet (possible workaround: use RecordReaderMultiDataSetIterator + MultiDataSetWrapperIterator)

  • TransferLearning: ComputationGraph may incorrectly apply l1/l2 regularization (defined in FinetuneConfiguration) to frozen layers. Workaround: set 0.0 l1/l2 on FineTuneConfiguration, and required l1/l2 on new/non-frozen layers directly. Note that MultiLayerNetwork with TransferLearning appears to be unaffected.
