Tensor and Variable are the same now?

Maybe I am a bit late here but I just got to know that Tensor and Variable behave the same now. Where as we had to wrap a tensor before with the Variable tag, now we don’t have to.

So my question is:

Are there any extra advantages of still using the Variable wrapper over a tensor? If not, then can we stop using Variable and continue all our autograd operations on a tensor( provided requires_grad=True)?

Using Variable wrapper will just return an object of the new Tensor class. And yes, autograd works with Tensor now.
