CDF V3.9.0 is released.
This version has various improvements and bug fixes: including adding
more dynamic space and better staging cache management to avoid using
temporary file(s) for the compressed operations and improve the
I/O access performance. For further details and changes, see
CDF change logs.
We encourage all CDF users to upgrade their CDF software.
For Windows: There are multiple installers for the binary distribution
for Microsoft Windows version. Check
for information. The WinZip-based *.zip files require manual steps to
place the distribution into the specified location.
For Mac OS:
The CDF and Perl distributions are universal binary of
X86_64 and ARM64 code. All others are still
x86_64-based, which can run on Apple Silicon Macs.
It has been found that there is an issue calling the CDF internal
interface from gfortran made for Apple Silicon M* Mac port
with file type arm64. For these machines, please use the
X86_64-based gfortran, instead.
The CDF package installer allows installation at users home's
Applications directory, instead of the default at system's
