Download the Latest Version of HDF5

HDF5 1.10 is the recommended branch to use for HDF5 development that doesn't use the virtual object layer (VOL).

Alternative HDF5 Branches

Experimental version of HDF5 where you can try the latest features and should not be used for production. VOL connector development should target this branch. HDF5 1.13 will be released as HDF5 1.14 in the future. For more information, see Introducing Experimental Releases.

The 1.12 API includes an early version of the virtual object layer (VOL). It will be retired when 1.14 releases as the VOL layer is not suitable for pass-through VOL connectors.

HDF5 1.8 is an older version of the library that will be retired in early 2023.
