tensorflow_datasets version compatible with tensorflow 1.15


I am using tensorflow 1.15 in my code and I would like to use tensorflow_datasets. I installed the last version of tensorflow_datasets but it seems to be in conflict with my version of tf. The actual message when trying to import tensorflow_datasets was:

import tensorflow as tf
import tensorflow_datasets as tfds

ImportError: This version of TensorFlow Datasets requires TensorFlow
version >= 2.1.0; Detected an installation of version 1.15.0. Please
upgrade TensorFlow to proceed.

So, obviously a newer version of tf (like one >= 2.1.0) would work but I want to keep my version of tf and instead use a previous version of tensorflow_datasets.

I tried to find this information in github repository but to no avail.

So, is there a version available and if so which is the latest one compatible with tf 1.15?


The support of TF 1.15 was dropped on the passage to TFDS 4.0.0. (See commit a2fe67c415a7af740fd7ec810b79c9fa80f29516).

The latest version of TFDS that support TF 1.15 is the 3.2.1.
