Build from Source

Install nightly from the source. Note that it contains all the bug fixes and newly released features that are not published yet. This is the bleeding edge, so use it at your own discretion.

pip install -U

Install future patch releases from the source. Note that the patch release contains only the bug fixes for the recent major release.

pip install -U

Custom PyTorch Version

To use any PyTorch version visit the PyTorch Installation Page.
