  • Silo-4.10.1 was removed due to a missing compatibility feature with Silo-4.10. Please use Silo-4.10.2
  • Until the release tarballs are permanently available at the URL's mentioned above (probably next week sometime), they will be temporarily available at...
    • ftp://ftp.llnl.gov/outgoing/silo-4.10.1.tar.gz (Removed 10/14/14 - Please use Silo-4.10.2)
    • ftp://ftp.llnl.gov/outgoing/silo-4.10.1-bsd.tar.gz (Removed 10/14/14 - Please use Silo-4.10.2)
    • ftp://ftp.llnl.gov/outgoing/silo-4.10.1-bsd-smalltest.tar.gz (Removed 10/14/14 - Please use Silo-4.10.2)
  • Version 4.10.1 is link-time compatible 4.10.
  • In some cases, passing a 'make check' requires adding 'LIBS=-lstdc++' to the make command line (e.g. 'make check LIBS=-lstdc++'.
  • The rocket test will fail during 'make check' on OSX. We've yet to learn how to handle dlopen and shared libs there. For similar reasons, Silo's python module has yet to be tested on a OSX.

2. Bugs fixed in this release

  • Fixed problems with handling empty DBmatspecies objects.
  • Fixed problems compiling some 64 bit literal constants used for data read masks by adding 'ULL' suffix to indicate to the compiler that they should be treated as unsigned long long.
  • Fixed problems with Fortran header file generation.
  • Fixed incorrect handling of datatype for extface argument of DBPutPHZonelist in HDF5 driver (Thanks to Jeffrey Johnson for the fix!).
  • Fixed a UMR causing corrupted zonetype array data for the zonelist read as part of a DBGetUcdmesh call on the HDF5 driver.
