HDFView 3.1.2 was built and tested with HDF5-1.10.7, HDF 4.2.15, and openjdk 15. 

The source code and pre-built binaries are provided in the table below.

* This release provides two ways to install the HDFView pre-built binary distribution for a platform:

  • Using an application image. This method simply requires running the provided executable to obtain the software.
  • Running an installer. This method runs an installer (eg .exe) that sets up file associations and menu items.

Once you have uncompressed the downloaded pre-built binary file, refer to the provided README file for details.

See Known Problems if you encounter any issues.

Known Problems In This Release

  • Workaround for issue with launching HDFView:
    A path issue which causes HDFView to fail to launch can be resolved by downloading the script below that pertains to your platform:
    The script should be placed in the HDFView installation directory, where the HDFView executable is located.
  • MacOS 11.0 and 10.15 are not currently supported due to a notification signing issue. We are working on this issue and will provide the binary distributions for these platforms as they become available.

  • If installing HDFView with the installer method, please be aware that the installer does NOT overwrite "hardcoded" associations.  If there is a pre-existing user-defined file association, you must manually associate the extension with the HDFView application.

  • The Ubuntu HDFView binary distribution fails to install on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, with the error version GLIBC_2.32 not found. Upgrading to 20.10 should provide GLIBC_2.32 along with the 5.8 kernel.

Please see the release notes for more information on known problems.
