2021-06-05 PyMC Timeline
What a year! What started out as a very diffuse outlook has converged to an exciting future for
PyMC3: Our backend changed from
Aesara, a next-generation graph computation engine.
This means that exciting features and a few breaking changes are coming to your favorite PPL,
First of all, the 3 in PyMC3 no longer has anything to do with the package version. Better think of it as "PyMC for Python 3" compared to the predecessor "PyMC2".
Depending on the release version, PyMC3 depends on different graph computation backends:
pymc3 <3.10depends on Theano
pymc3 >=3.10,<4depends on Theano-PyMC
pymc3 >=4depends on Aesara
main, formerly known as
master. From this branch we make releases of
v3is for backporting critical bugfixes to the "old" PyMC3.
Check the Milestones to find which releases are coming up next.
- Everything in a
vNextmilestone has topmost priority.
- Issues outside of milestones are considered "backlog". They don't block a release, but fixing them is still an important contribution!
