Status of 1.10 and journaling


Just wondering how 1.10 is coming along and especially the highly desired
journaling of metadata / writes.

I can't tell you how much good this would do for HDF. Currently HDF5 usage
in a real time / mission critical context is very dangerous... so I
basically write my own code to various posix and filesystem guarantees so
that in the event of a failure, there will be no filesystem inconsistencies
or partial writes and the majority of my data should be usable HDF usage
then comes later when these ad-hoc binary logs are converted to something
usable long term... and this is about the best I can do at the moment.
However it relies on data being collected not being very complex to keep
things manageable... and that's not a good long term assumption. Sure
would be nice to use HDF directly instead.
