We’ve just launched fastai v1, which is a from-scratch rewrite: http://www.fast.ai/2018/10/02/fastai-ai/
I’ve moved the old fastai/ folder to old/fastai/. I’ve also updated the symlinks in all course folders. So everything should continue to work fine, if you’re using the conda environment and symlink approach recommended for the course. You won’t be able to use the pip version of fastai in the future, since that will be updated to v1, which isn’t compatible with the course - unless you pin your pip installed version to <1.
I’ve added this to the fastai readme FYI:
Note for course.fast.ai students
If you are using fastai for any course.fast.ai course, please do NOT install fastai from pip or conda using the instructions below; the instructions below are for fastai v1, but the courses use fastai 0.7. For the courses, you should simply
conda env update , and the notebooks will work (there is a symlink to old/fastai/, which is fastai 0.7, in each course notebook directory).
