#1

HDFView version 3.1.3 is now available from the HDFView Download page:

https://www.hdfgroup.org/downloads/hdfview/

The software can also be obtained from the HDFView 3.1.3 page on the HDF Support Portal. As version 3.1.2, this release was built and tested with HDF5-1.10.7, HDF 4.2.15, and OpenJDK 15.

This is a maintenance release with a few changes, including:

  • The ability to read and display non-standard floating point numbers.
  • The flag startDir is added to command line options.
  • The default file search directory was incorrectly set to always use the installation folder. This was fixed to allow a user specified folder.
    1. The User Properties dialog was fixed to allow the user to set the default search folder.
    2. The search folder will appear first in the recent files list.
    3. The default search directory is specified by the system property, user.dir, which is usually the current user location from which HDFView was launched.

New supported platforms include macOS 11.*.

Please see the release notes for complete details on what is new in this release.
