We are happy to announce the release of HDFql 2.4.0!

This version includes:

Added support for user-defined block of data stored within an HDF5 file in a space reserved for this purpose

Improved memory footprint to maintain an open HDF5 file (it now takes ~3 KB to maintain an open file [previously it was taking ~30 KB] – this can be especially relevant when having thousands of open files at the same time)

Replaced the readline library with the editline library in HDFqlCLI (command-line interface) (in Linux and macOS)

(Please check the release notes for further details)
