This post will guide you to upgrade Kuwa TAIDE’s built-in model from TAIDE-LX-7B-Chat-4bit to Llama3-TAIDE-LX-8B-Chat-Alpha1-4bit.

  1. Go to C:\kuwa\GenAI OS\windows\executors, and duplicate the 1_taide directory to 1_taide-8b. If you only need to run the new version of TAIDE model, you can delete the run.bat file in 1_taide.

  2. Download taide-8b-a.3-q4_k_m.gguf from the official TAIDE HuggingFace Hub to C:\kuwa\GenAI OS\windows\executors\1-taide_8b, and delete the original taide-7b-a.2-q4_k_m.gguf

This version does not include the TAIDE model itself, and a version pre-loaded with the TAIDE model is expected to be released after the TAIDE model is publicly available.

Hello to our community friends,

After collecting everyone's feedback, we plan to roll out the long-awaited RAG feature in v0.2.0. The RAG part has been internally tested, so we are releasing v0.2.0-beta to invite everyone to test it out and see if it meets your expectations.
In addition, this update also provides a way to connect with TAIDE API and TAIDE models.
At the same time, we have also adjusted the system installation script and fixed some known bugs, making the entire system more stable, easier to extend, and easier to use.
If you have any suggestions or if you think there is room for improvement, please let us know!
