The development process for H5MD is based on proposals
Proposals are motivated and present a change to the file format in detail. A change should be accompanied by sample code to test the viability of an idea. This change is formalised in proposal 1.
Proposal 100: Storage of time information
Several changes are made: The
time dataset can be left out if it
is not needed. The
time datasets can be scalar, in
which case the data is mandatorily sampled at equal time intervals.
Proposal 101: Particles and tuples lists
A storage layout is defined for lists of particles and lists of tuples of particles.
Proposal 102: Storage of charges
Charges can be stored in a
particles group along other
proposal 103: Connectivity group
The storage layout defined in proposal 101 is used to unify the storage of connectivity information, i.e. lists of pairs (or bonds), etc.
