The National Space Science Data Center's (NSSDC) Common Data Format (CDF) is a self-describing data abstraction for the storage and manipulation of multidimensional data in a platform- and discipline-independent fashion. It consists of a scientific data management package (known as the "CDF Library") that allows programmers and application developers to manage and manipulate scalar, vector, and multi-dimensional data arrays.

Changes

This release adds data types CDF_INT8 and CDF_TIME_TT2000, where the latter is nanoseconds since J2000 with leap seconds included. There are minor enhancements and bugfixes.
