Personally, I'm most interested in trying out the new features introduced with scikit-learn 0.18, but there are other outdated packages in the Conda repository. Any plans to update them?
Intel updated scikit-learn to 0.18.1 in the recent Intel® Distribution for Python 2017 Update 2. You can check the details about the scikit-learn version and all the updated packages in the Release Notes PDF here: https://software.intel.com/sites/default/files/managed/ec/c7/Intel_Distribution_Python2017U2_Release_Notes.pdf
