Layla v4.6.0 has been published!

This update brings several important improvements:

Repetition Control! This update adds fine-grained control to stop your characters from repeating the same phrases over and over again. Previously this is partly solved by enabling the Mirostat sampler. While Mirostat helps, this update provides a direct sampling method that targets fixing repetition.

You can turn it on by setting the "multiplier" to anything greater than 1 in the Advanced settings:

PDF Digest

Chat with your PDF in this update! Send your PDFs to Layla, and she can give you an informed response on the contents of the PDF by picking out relevant information within.

Phi-3 support! Microsoft has recently published both Llama3 and Phi-3 open source models, two best in class open source models for their weight. Both are now supported in Layla. You can download the official weights from Hugging Face and load them into Layla via the RMI app (Raw Model Instructions).

Executorch support!

Executorch is an experimental LLM inference engine that utilises the GPU and Neural engines of the latest smartphone processors. It runs Llama3 models at 5-10x the speed normally in Layla.
