Release Notes: Links to external files via the NeXus external linking mechanism have now been enhanced to take advantage of native HDF5 external linking. HDF5-based files can now have multiple "unlimited" dimensions. New API functions have been added to handle very large arrays. A new Python tree API has been added, along with a GUI Java-based NXvalidate program. The NeXus API now ensures thread safety, even if the underlying HDF/XML library is not built that way. The new application NXtraverse has been added. Other minor enhancements and bugfixes have been made.
