The full range of HDF5 is currently:

1.8.16 through to 1.8.21


1.10.0 through to 1.10.5

This is too many versions to be testing all of them, particularly as we test specific combinations of HDF5 with PETSc.

I think a sensible plan is to have 1.8.16 and 1.10.0 as our dark green preferred versions, as these are the defaults on Ubuntu 16.04 and 18.04.

I suggest we then test against the newest 1.8, and focus on testing the newer 1.10s, which certainly seems to be the HDF5 development focus at present.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

All of the new versions are now compiled on Lofty and in the rotation.

I have put 1.8.17 - 1.8.20 orange as they are no longer regularly tested, but should work (and have been regularly tested in the past).
