ML Runtimes What's New

Major features and updates for ML Runtimes.

This release is available with ML Runtimes version 2021.12.

Version 2021.12

New features

  • Powered By Jupyter (PBJ) Workbench (Preview) - The Powered By Jupyter (PBJ) Workbench features the classic workbench UI backed by the open-source Jupyter protocol pre-packaged in an ML Runtime image. Users can easily choose this Runtime when launching a session. The open-source Jupyter infrastructure eliminates the dependency on proprietary CML code when building a Docker image, allowing runtime images to be built with open standards. The first PBJ Workbench Runtimes are available as Tech Preview.
  • The Global Registry for npm is set to https://registry.npmjs.org/ in all of our runtimes. With this change, customers can use npm install in their Dockerfiles, when they build custom runtimes on top of ours.

Fixed issues

  • DSE-2064 Upgrade of Python Kernels across of all ML Runtimes:
    • Python 3.7.12 -> 3.7.13
    • Python 3.8.12 -> 3.8.13
    • Python 3.9.7 -> Python 3.9.11
