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

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
(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.
