We are happy to announce the release of HDFql 2.1.0!
This version includes:
– Added support for direct chunk write/read into/from datasets (to greatly increase performance) – thanks to Mark (University of Chicago, USA), Xiaoqiang (Paul Scherrer Institute, Switzerland), Ulrik (Diamond Light Source, UK), Tobias (Imperial College London, UK) and Stefan (Fermilab, USA) for the feedback.
– Added wrapper for Python version 3.7.x
– Added capability to open an HDF5 file, define/manipulate/query/introspect objects (i.e. groups, datasets, attributes, (soft) links or external links) and, afterwards, close the file in one go (in all relevant operations – e.g. “CREATE DATASET”, “INSERT” and “SELECT”)
– Updated reference manual
(Please check the release notes for further details)
