This release has just a few new features and changes. Important changes include:
- A bug was fixed in the parallel library that caused an application to hang if a collective read/write of a chunked dataset occurred when collective metadata reads were enabled and some of the ranks had no selection in the dataset’s dataspace.
- Enhanced support was added for using the cross compiling variables in CMake. However, only limited testing was done in this release, and it is not currently well documented.
- Default rpaths can now be added for loading dependent libraries without requiring LD_LIBRARY_PATH to be set.
For detailed information on the new features and changes in this release, please see the release notes.
