-Release Notes for PDL-IO-HDF5 0.63_03 --------------------------
+Release Notes for PDL-IO-HDF5 0.64 --------------------------
 
 General Notes:
 
- * Another quick CPAN developers release
+ * This is an update release to PDL::IO::HDF5 with
+   improved platform detection and build process.
 
-   - It is a snapshot of the current git development tree
-     and everything may not work correctly or have complete
-     documentation.
-
-   - These release notes may not be fully complete.  Please
-     see Changes (from the git log) for full details.

-   - All tests may not pass, especially ones corresponding
-     to issues in Known_problems.
-   
-   - Manual build/install is recommended although the
-     cpan shell may be used by specifying the distribution
-     path rather than just the module name, e.g.:
-
-       cpan> get  CHM/PDL-IO-HDF5-0.63_03.tar.gz
-       cpan> make CHM/PDL-IO-HDF5-0.63_03.tar.gz
-       cpan> test CHM/PDL-IO-HDF5-0.63_03.tar.gz
-       cpan> look CHM/PDL-IO-HDF5-0.63_03.tar.gz
+ * New features and tests (thanks to Andrew Benson)
 
 Highlights:
 
- * TBD
+ * New features:
+   - Unlinking of datasets
+   - Extensible datasets
+   - Creation of scalar references
+   - Automatic dereferencing of scalar references
+   - Support for longlong integer attributes and datasets
