HDF5 1.10.1-pre1 release candidate is available for testing

Larry Knox

Hello everyone,

 

A first pre-release version of HDF5 1.10.1 is available for testing and can be downloaded at the following link:

 

https://gamma.hdfgroup.org/ftp/pub/outgoing/hdf5

 

Four new features are introduced in HDF5 1.10.1:

 

               Metadata Cache Image

               Metadata Cache Evict on Close

               Paged Aggregation

               Page Buffering

 

Details and documentation for these features may be found at https://support.hdfgroup.org/HDF5/docNewFeatures/index.html.

 

For more information about the release see https://gamma.hdfgroup.org/ftp/pub/outgoing/hdf5/hdf5-1.10.1-pre1-RELEASE.txt

 

If you have time to test this release candidate, we would greatly appreciate it. We test HDF5 on a variety of platforms and with multiple compilers, but there is always a system that we couldn’t test on. Your feedback is critical.

 

For those who use autoconf to build HDF5, please notice that the default configuration mode for this distribution is “development". Use the "--enable-production" configure flag if you want to build HDF5 in the production mode. The default will be changed to “production" in the next release candidate and in the release itself, which we hope to complete well before the end of April.

 

The shared library version numbers for lib.so.* files in HDF5-1.10.1-pre1 have been updated according to libtool’s versioning system and the changes in symbols from HDF5-1.10.0-patch1. The API compatibility report is at this link:  https://gamma.hdfgroup.org/ftp/pub/outgoing/hdf5/hdf5-1.10.1-pre1_interface_compatibility_report.

 

Your prompt reports of any issues found will be invaluable and very much appreciated. Thank you and happy testing!

 

Larry

attached patch that
- enable shared libs on cygwin, as for 1.8.x
   (it seems that chunk was forgotten in 1.10.x,
   while other chunks later in configure.ac arrived)
- properly does not install test libraries
- properly requires ..LIBADD=$(LIBHDF5) for platform requiring
   no-undefined links
   (similar to what reported on 1.8.18)


The build of release candidate is fine but
some tests are segfaulting or stacking.
I will need some time to identify if it is library fault, test fault, or
my system glitches; so do not wait for me for a full release.
