Dear HDF community

We released a new version of HDF Explorer. This version fixes a bug in
the time evaluation of temporary licenses and it affects only users who
requested a license after December 1 2010.

To get the new version (1.4.036), please go to

There are other minor improvements done in the last year:

. Creation/saving of bitmap files (Windows BMP format) is possible with
   much larger sizes.
. The grid font was made larger
. Add of NeXus file extensions ( nxs, nx5, nx4) to the list of extensions
     to open in the file dialog. NeXus is a common data format for neutron,
     x-ray, and muon science that has HDF5 or HDF4 as the base format.

We accept any suggestions regarding new/change features regarding HDF
Explorer, please send us an email if you have any suggestion.

HDF Explorer has a price of 49 USD (ordered by PayPal in our site), but
we offer time limit evaluation licenses.
