Release Note of 1.8.1

  • Release date: January 28, 2017.
  • The source tar balls can be obtained from the  Download Page

This release is mainly for fixing the following bug.

  • Bug fixes:
    • Fortran parameters NF_MAX_DIMS, NF_MAX_ATTRS, NF_MAX_VARS, and NF_MAX_NAME defined in the Fortran header file, pnetcdf.inc, were set to obsolete values and have been fixed in this release to conform with their corresponding C constants. Because these four parameters were not used by PnetCDF internally, the end users can safely skip this release and 1.8.1 should perform the same as 1.8.0. If your programs explicitly use these four parameters, then updating to 1.8.1 is recommended.
  • Other updates:
    • To conform with GNU Coding Standards, the installation location for man pages are changed to ${prefix}/share/man.
    • Support of DESTDIR for Building Binary Packages has been added, as suggested by sunpoet@FreeBSD.org. Ticket #25
