Hi Quincey:

Ill be on vacation for 2 weeks, and after that I will start up again on Netcdf-4. It would be great if Vailin would be ready to feed me new file specs.

She's made a bunch of updates this week and as soon as I review them, we'll get them checked in. Then you can start on those while she's working on the next batch.

        Have fun on your vacation! :-)

Hi Quincey:

Any idea when you will get to this?

    Yes, one of the HDF5 developers here (Vailin Choi) is wrapping up
some work on the 'h5stat' tool, which will probably take another 2-3
weeks.  Then, she'll start updating the file format spec. and adding
support for the new format changes to the 'h5check' tool (which
validates that an HDF5 file conforms to the format spec.). So, in about a month, we'll be able to start feeding you updates to the file format

    If you'd like to start earlier than that, I can guide you to the
relevant portions of the source code, which are fairly isolated and
reasonable well documented.

Hello all:

I'd like to get started soon on reading netcdf-4/hdf-1.8 through the
java library. Im wondering if theres any documentation that
describes the latest file format?
    Unfortunately, there are many additions to the HDF5 file format
to support new features in the 1.8.0 release and I haven't had the
time to get them documented in the file format specification yet.
After we've got problems fixed, a few minor missing features added
and possibly some critical optimizations fixed in the 1.8.0
beta/actual release(s), I'll revise the file format specification and
you can pepper me with more questions about the confusing parts
again. :-)
