RE: netcdf-4.0-beta1 release now available on netCDF web site...

Hi everybody!

I built netcdf4 on a Linux machine. It works fine with netcdf files.
However hdf5 files are not read. I created a simple hdf5 file using
hdf5 version 1.8 and tried to open it with nc_open(), I got error
"-51". Any ideas why it is not working?

Thanks,
Ali

Ed:  Thanks!  beta1 works fine and passes all the tests with my python 
module.  However, ncdump appears to be broken - every netcdf-4 file I 
try results in something like this:

ncdump: test.nc: HDF error

It seems to work fine with netcdf-3 files however.
