I see that XGBoost has release a stable 1.6 version, however is doesn’t seem to be available in the conda-forge channel, though there are previous versions available, such as 1.5.1.
I’m particular interested in version 1.6 as there is a huber_slope parameter now available for the pseudo huber loss.
What would the process be for XGBoost version 1.6 to reach the conda-forge channel?
I have noticed that there is the possibility of installing version 1.6 manually, but I am concerned about dependencies concerning the other packages which I am using in Python. Conda has so far been successful in maintaining the dependency requirements between the various packages I have installed.
Is there perhaps another channel that may host XGBoost 1.6 or has it not reached the conda-forge channel for whatever reason?
Thanks in advance
