Fedora Update Notification

Name        : hdf
Product     : Fedora 10
Version     : 4.2r4
Release     : 1.fc10
URL         : http://hdfgroup.org/products/hdf4/index.html
Summary     : A general purpose library and file format for storing scientific data
Description :
HDF is a general purpose library and file format for storing scientific data.
HDF can store two primary objects: datasets and groups. A dataset is
essentially a multidimensional array of data elements, and a group is a
structure for organizing objects in an HDF file. Using these two basic
objects, one can create and store almost any kind of scientific data
structure, such as images, arrays of vectors, and structured and unstructured
grids. You can also mix and match them in HDF files according to your needs.

Update Information:

Update to 4.2r4    - Added new API SDgetdatasize to retrieve the compressed and
original sizes of an SDS' data.  - The following Fortran APIs were added in this
release:                  sfgetname                  sfgetnamelen
sfgmaxopenf                  sfgnumopenf                  sfrmaxopenf
sfidtype                  sfgnvars_byname                  sfn2indices  -
hrepack output now includes dataset compression ratios.  - hdp now displays
various parameters of Gzip, Szip, and Skipping Huffman compressions when a
dataset is compressed.  - hrepack previously failed to preserve unlimited
dataset dimensions; they are now preserved.  - SDreaddata now checks for out-of-
range values in the parameter 'stride' and fails when invalid values are given.
- Reading a record variable using nc API fills the buffer with fill values up to
the maximum number of records of all unlimited dimension variables in the file,
as in netCDF.  It used to fail before.  - When the file name is too long, some
SD APIs caused a segmentation fault.  This problem is now fixed.
