to release netCDF-4.0-beta1, and it is now available from the netCDF
web site:

The netCDF-4.0 beta release requires HDF5 1.8.0-beta1, and
zlib-1.2.3. These can be obtained from the netCDF-4 FTP site:

Documentation for this release can be found on the netCDF beta
documentation page:

For more information about this release, see the netCDF-4.0 beta
release notes:

Recent changes in netCDF-4.0 include the use of the new creation
ordering capabilities of HDF5 1.8.0. Since this feature was added to
HDF5 very recently, the HDF5-1.8.0 beta1 release is now required for
netCDF-4.0; previous versions of HDF5 will no longer work.

Build output from a variety of platforms may be found at the netCDF-4
snapshot build page:

The version 4.0 release of netCDF includes many new features, with a
correspondingly higher risk of bugs in the code and the
documentation. Please report any problems to
