Re: HDF5 1.10.1-pre2 release candidate is available for testing
1.A second pre-release
version of HDF5 1.10.1 is available for testing and can be downloaded at thelinkbelow. This version will build in production mode by default. Changes since the pre1 version include the inclusion of complete HDF5 1.8 release history files in the release_docs directory
and the addressing of a problem with collective metadata writes which caused CGNS tests with MPICH 3.1.4 to fail (HDFFV-10055).
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.We expect to make the final HDF5 1.10.1 release available before the end of April.
Thank you and happy testing!
