HDF 4.2.9 is a minor release with a few new features and changes, including the following:
Support was added for Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) with the Clang and Intel compilers. The Clang compiler is the default C compiler.
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.
HDF can now build on Cygwin (version 1.7) using TI-RPC (Transport Independent RPC).
Please refer to the HDF 4.2.9 Release Notes for complete details on what has changed in this release:
