This page describes how Vertex AI Workbench managed notebooks versions are named and how frequently they are updated.
Managed notebooks version names match the naming convention of Deep Learning VM Images versions. Both are named with the letter M followed by a version number. For example, the M93 versions of managed notebooks and Deep Learning VM were released on May 27, 2022.
Managed notebooks and Deep Learning VM releases that have the same version number also have matching versions of frameworks and pre-installed packages.
For example, the M93 version of managed notebooks contains a TensorFlow kernel that runs TensorFlow 2.9, and the M93 version of Deep Learning VM includes an image with a TensorFlow 2.9 environment.
Managed notebooks versions are not necessarily updated at the same time as Deep Learning VM. For example, the M91 version of managed notebooks was released after the M91 version of Deep Learning VM.
Managed notebooks versions are not necessarily updated as frequently as Deep Learning VM. As a result, managed notebooks versions can skip version numbers. For example, Deep Learning VM released versions M91, M92, and M93, while managed notebooks released versions M91 and M93.
