The netcdf-c library filters API in version 4.7.4 has been deprecated in favor of a modified version that unfortunately may cause incompatibilties for users.
The initial reason for the incompatible changes was to support the use of filters in the new NCZarr code. The changes were not completely thought out so it was decided to remove them and revert to previous behaviors. At some future point, the filter mechanism will be extended to support filters for NCZarr, but these will be proper extensions: the existing, reverted, filter API will continue to be supported with no user-visible modifications.
Unfortunately, some advanced users of netcdf filters may experience some compilation or execution problems for previously working code because of these reversions. In that case, please revise your code. Apologies are extended for any inconvenience. Note that it is possible to detect which mechanism is in place at build time.
In summary, the changes are of the following kinds:
