Release of HDF5 1.8.5-patch1
HDF5 1.8.5-patch1 has been released. It is a full source code release, containing a few important changes and bug fixes, which include:

New HDF5 High Level functions for region references, hyperslabs, and bit-fields
We are pleased to announce a new set of C and Fortran convenience functions designed to facilitate access to remote sensing data in HDF5. The data will be gathered by a new generation of low earth orbiting satellites that monitor environmental conditions for long-range weather and climate forecasts. (Refer to the NPOESS project for details.)
The source code, installation instructions and a draft of the User's Guide are available from:
The Reference Manual can be found at:
While these functions were created to facilitate access to NPOESS data, some of them may be useful to anyone working with HDF5 region references, hyperslab selections, or bit-fields. For a quick introduction to region references and hyperslab selections see the HDF5 Tutorial:
We are looking forward to receiving your comments on this new set of
Pre-release snapshot of HDF-Java 2.7
A pre-release snapshot of HDF-Java 2.7 is available for download from:
This version of HDFView includes a new feature to display bit-field data packed into an integer (a.k.a. NPOESS quality flags). It also includes wrappers to support HDF5 1.8 features. For more information see:
RFC for h5edit tool
