Polyaxon v1.5: Compiler Improvements

Polyaxon v1.5 brings several enhancements to the specifiation and compilation process.

Compiler Enhancements

Optimized compilation and context resolution

This version brings several new heuristics to optimize the process of resolving and converting Polyaxonfiles, from a couple of milliseconds to a second in some cases, which should translate to faster scheduling of operations.

We also consolated the interface for requesting and resolving information from the compiler’s context, as well as moving the context to its own documentation section.

Improved init artifacts specification

This was requested several times, extending the artifacts initializer to allow providing a custom destination path where it should store the artifacts collected:

init:
  files:
    - file1
    - - file2
      - path/to/store/file2
  dirs:
    - dir1
    - - dir2
      - path/to/store/dir2

file1 and dir1 are what users were familiar with. file2 and dir2 are the new capability, the initializer accepts a tuple to specify the path from and the path to.

Restart with copy improvement

As a result of the previous enhancement, when a user restarts an operation using the copy mode, the copied information will be initialized automatically under the new run.

Note: Restart with copy mode is an advanced feature to allow users to resume training of an experiment with updated code/params/configuration/resources multiple times without mutating the original run.

New input type UUID

Polyaxonfile parser can now validate uuid types properly, users can use this new type instead of str to validate the inputs and fail faster.
