Hello HDF5 group!
Zstandard is a real-time compression algorithm, providing high compression ratios. It offers a very wide range of compression / speed trade-off, while being backed by a very fast decoder. Zstandard library is provided as open source software using a BSD license.
In attachment you can find an implementation of Zstd HDF5 gilter plug-in. My tests confirm the good properties of Zstd compression, even on small chunks.
I'd like the filter binary format to be registered in
Is anything else needed to get the filter ID registered? I think the filter code is trivial, but if explicit license is needed, please let me know.
