Release of HDF5 Library and Tools 1.14.1 (Newsletter #194)
The HDF5 library and tools 1.14.1 release is now available from the HDF5 Download page.
This is a maintenance release with a few changes and updates:
- Added a Subfiling VFD configuration file prefix environment variable.
H5Pget_no_selection_io_cause()API functions to manage the selection I/O feature. This can be used to enable collective I/O with type conversion, or it can be used with custom VFDs that support vector or selection I/O.
H5Pget_modify_write_buf()API functions to allow the library to modify the contents of write buffers, in order to avoid malloc/memcpy. Currently only used for type conversion with selection I/O.
- Multiple bug, memory leak, and buffer overrun fixes, particularly when parsing malformed files.
NOTE: HDF5 1.14.1-2 binaries are also available (these are now the default on the website). This is a patch release where the Autotools files were generated using Autoconf 2.71, which is required for using Intel’s oneAPI. There are no code changes in HDF5 1.14.1-2.
Please see the full release notes for detailed information regarding this release, including a detailed list of changes.
We also maintain a release schedule for all HDF5 library versions in the README on Github. As always, feel free to post on the forum with any questions.
