Subject: Updated: hdf4-4.2.15-3 (x86_64 only)
Date: Sat, 24 Apr 2021 22:24:29 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Version 4.2.15-3 of


for cygwin have been uploaded.

Updated to add libsz dependency.
This is a last upstream release of 4.2.x series

It was possible to patch the source to be built for Cygwin
but on 32bit most of tests fail. For this reason only the
64bit version is distributed

HDF4® is a library and multi-object file format for storing and
managing data between machines. HDF4 is a very different technology
than HDF5.
The HDF Group recommends that, other than for working with existing
HDF4 data, new applications use HDF5 since HDF5 addresses important
deficiencies of HDF4.
NASA maintains a network of Earth Observing Satellites that transmit
huge volumes of new imagery data daily in HDF4.  As a result, HDF4
is used extensively in the Earth Sciences.
