Name        : hdf
Product     : Fedora 18
Version     : 4.2.9
Release     : 1.fc18
URL         : http://hdfgroup.org/products/hdf4/index.html
Summary     : A general purpose library and file format for storing scientific data
Description :
HDF is a general purpose library and file format for storing scientific data.
HDF can store two primary objects: datasets and groups. A dataset is
essentially a multidimensional array of data elements, and a group is a
structure for organizing objects in an HDF file. Using these two basic
objects, one can create and store almost any kind of scientific data
structure, such as images, arrays of vectors, and structured and unstructured
grids. You can also mix and match them in HDF files according to your needs.

Update Information:

Update to 4.2.9.
- The SDgetcompress API has been deprecated in this release. It is still available by default in the library, but is no longer documented. Users should use SDgetcompinfo instead. The SDgetcompress function can be removed from the HDF4 library by specifying -DH4_NO_DEPRECATED_SYMBOLS when compiling.
- It was discovered by the HDF Mapping Project that there were certain type of palettes that cannot be retrieved by existing functions.  A new function, GRgetpalinfo, was added to allow applications to get information about palettes.  Please refer to the HDF User's Guide and Reference Manual for more information regarding this palette issue.  BMR - 2012/07/26
- It was also discovered that the IMCOMP compression was not detected.  Although IMCOMP is no longer supported in new data, HDF still needs to detect IMCOMP compression from existing data.  We added COMP_CODE_IMCOMP to comp_coder_t with value 12 (same as COMP_IMCOMP.)  The library and hdp now can detect IMCOMP compression.  However, writing IMCOMP compressed images is not allowed.  BMR - 2012/07/26
- Added GRgetcomptype to return image's compression, which can include IMCOMP.  BMR - 2012/07/26
