    Will you be adding options for relative path handling for external datasets in this release, so they can be resolved relative to the HDF5 file? This would make this feature much easier to use, particularly in cases where the external files are stored alongside the HDF5 file, and when the complete set of files is exchanged between users with different directory structures. For example, I want to record some data on one machine, and give it to other users elsewhere for analysis.

    When will swmr be available on windows? As far as I know windows is not posix compliant.

      Hi Stian – the SWMR feature itself works on Windows if SWMR writer and readers use local NTFS Windows file system. SWMR will not be supported on Windows in 1.10.0 since we do not have an automated testing on Windows. We will rework our documentation and will not use “POSIX compliant” requirement replacing it with the file system that has to provide consistent ordering of I/O operation as POSIX requires: “POSIX I/O writes must be performed in a sequentially consistent manner.”

    Any news on metadata journaling? I had read previously it was intended to make it into version 1.10.

      Unfortunately, journaling is not a feature in the 1.10.0 release, although it’s possible for a future release. Please stay tuned!
