Gigantum Client 1.5.0

Gigantum Client 1.5.0 is now available. This is a significant release that adds new features and fixes. It is strongly recommended that all users update to this version. This release adds the ability to add "Custom Apps" to a Project, sync while running, and more.

Custom Apps

The new Custom Apps feature is used to run additional tools that are not provided by default (e.g. Jupyterlab, Jupyter, and RStudio) inside a Project's environment. Examples of Custom Apps could be a different browser based editor or a dashboard.

To add a Custom App to a Project, navigate to the "Environment" tab and expand the "Advanced Configuration" section. To learn more, read about Custom Apps in our documentation.

We also created an example project that adds Tensorboard as a Custom App to monitor and inspect a simple model trained on the MNIST dataset. Check it out here: https://gigantum.com/gigantum-examples/tensorboard-example
