Release of HDFView 3.2.0 (Newsletter #184)
HDFView version 3.2.0 is now available from the HDFView Download page:
The software can also be obtained from the HDFView 3.2.0 page on the HDF Support Portal. This version was built and tested with HDF5-1.12.2, HDF 4.2.15, and openjdk 15.
This is a maintenance release with a number of new features and changes, including:
- The ability to read and display a SWMR created file, using a configurable timer to refresh dataset tables.
- The ability to display and edit attribute data in table views, the same way as the datasets.
- The ability to read and display non-standard floating point numbers.
- This version supports the new references available in hdf5 1.12 releases.
- The flag startDir is added to command line options.
- Incorrect displays of dimension for scalar types and of new attribute creation dialog were fixed.
- The default file search directory was incorrectly set to always use the installation folder. This was fixed to allow a user specified folder.
- The User Properties dialog was fixed to allow the user to set the default search folder.
- The search folder will appear first in the recent files list.
- The default search directory is specified by the system property, user.dir, which is usually the current user location from which HDFView was launched.
New supported platforms include macOS 11.*.
