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.

Tested Platforms and Configuration Features
NOTE: HDF5-1.12 requires MPI 3.
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.
