Release of HDF5-1.8.20
================================================================
 
The HDF5-1.8.20 release is now available. It can be obtained from The HDF Group Support Download page:

  https://support.hdfgroup.org/downloads/

It can also be obtained directly from:

      https://support.hdfgroup.org/HDF5/release/obtain518.html

HDF5-1.8.20 is a minor release with a few new features and changes. Important changes include:

. An issue with H5Zfilter_avail was fixed where it was not finding available plugins.

. Improvements were made to the h5repack, h5ls, h5dump, h5diff, and h5import utilities.

        In particular, please be aware that the behavior of the h5repack utility changed.
       
        A parameter was added to the "UD=" option of h5repack to allow the user defined filter flag to be changed to either H5Z_FLAG_MANDATORY (0) or H5Z_FLAG_OPTIONAL (1).

        An example of the command with the new parameter is shown here:
               h5repack -f UD=307,0,1,9 h5repack_layout.h5 out.h5repack_layout.h5

        Previously, the command would have been:
               h5repack -f UD=307,1,9 h5repack_layout.h5 out.h5repack_layout.h5

. Support for the NAG compiler was added.

. Many C++ APIs were added or modified to better reflect the HDF5 model.

This release contains many other changes that are not listed here. Please be sure to read the https://support.hdfgroup.org/ftp/HDF5/releases/hdf5-1.8/hdf5-1.8.20/src/hdf5-1.8.20-RELEASE.txt for a comprehensive list of new features and changes.

Changes that affect maintainers of HDF5-dependent applications are listed on the https://support.hdfgroup.org/HDF5/doc1.8/ADGuide/Changes.html page.

 
Future Changes to Supported Compilers

Please be aware that the minimum supported CMake version will be changing in the next release to CMake 3.8 or greater.

Neither of those pages contain the word "git".  Neither does the FAQ:

<https://support.hdfgroup.org/HDF5/HDF5-FAQ.html>

I browsed around the site quite a bit and I'm either blind or the git repo URL is really well hidden! :(  Where is it?

Thanks,

I could be totally wrong, but I don't think HDF5 has a public repo. At least I've never found it. Neither do they have a public bug tracker :(

Thanks Quincey,

I hope you can put that on your website somewhere; seems I was not alone in being unable to find it!

It seems there is no hdf5-1_8_20 tag though...

Cheers,

The  hdf5-1_8_20 tag will be applied later this afternoon when the merge to 1.8/master is completed.

Hi Sean,

To submit a patch, you can either send a message to the helpdesk ([hidden email]) or post a message to the HDF-Forum.
Either way is fine. We will add the issue to our bug system to be investigated.
