Applications that were created with earlier HDF5 releases may not compile with 1.12 by default.

The API Compatibility Macros in HDF5 allow users to work around this issue. Users can specify a compatibility macro mapping for the version of HDF5 that an application was built with. For example, a 1.10 application can be built with 1.12 using either an application or library mapping as follows:

  • To compile an application built with a version of HDF5 that includes deprecated symbols (the default), make sure to pass -DH5_USE_110_API to the compiler. For example (C), you can specify h5cc -DH5_USE_110_API (autotools) and cmake -DCMAKE_C_FLAGS="-DH5_USE_110_API" (CMake).
  • To build an HDF5 library with the 1.10 APIs you must set DEFAULT_API_VERSION to v110 when configuring. For example, with autotools specify --with-default-api-version=v110 and with CMake set -DDEFAULT_API_VERSION:STRING=v110 in the HDF5options.cmake file when using the CMake source release (CMake-hdf5-1.12.0*).

However, users will not be able to take advantage of some of the new features in 1.12 if using these compatibility mappings.

See the Migrating from HDF5 1.10 to HDF5 1.12 page and video for more information.

Autotools Builds ONLY

Autotools builds should be configured with the --enable-build-mode=production option to build HDF5 1.12.0 in production mode. Production mode is normally the default for configuring HDF5 software with Autotools, but the default change was overlooked in HDF5 1.12.0. Without the --enable-build-mode=production option, HDF5 1.12.0 configured with Autotools will be built in debug mode with expected performance degradation.

The HDF5 1.12.1 release in late Spring will return the default to production mode.

Known Problems

There is a problem compiling with the latest nag Fortran compiler, version 7.0. Please use nag version 6.2, instead.

The issue has been fixed in the hdf5_1_12 branch of the HDF5 source code in Bitbucket. If you cannot use version 6.2, please contact The HDF Helpdesk for a patch.
