Small question : do you now have the interface to set alignment?

> Announcing HDF5 for Python (h5py) 2.3.0
> The h5py team is happy to announce the availability of h5py 2.3.0 (final).
> Thanks to everyone who provided beta feedback!
> What's h5py?
> The h5py package is a Pythonic interface to the HDF5 binary data format.
> It lets you store huge amounts of numerical data, and easily manipulate
> that data from NumPy. For example, you can slice into multi-terabyte
> datasets stored on disk, as if they were real NumPy arrays. Thousands of
> datasets can be stored in a single file, categorized and tagged however
> you want.
> This release introduces some important new features, including:
> * Support for arbitrary vlen data
> * Improved exception messages
> * Improved setuptools support
> * Multiple additions to the low-level API
> * Improved support for MPI features
> * Single-step build for HDF5 on Windows
> Major fixes since beta:
> * LZF compression crash on Win64
> * Unhelpful error message relating to chunked storage
> * Import error for IPython completer on certain platforms
> A complete description of changes is available online:
> Where to get it
> Downloads, documentation, and more are available at the h5py website:
> The h5py package relies on third-party testing and contributions. For the
> 2.3 release, thanks especially to:
> * Martin Teichmann
> * Florian Rathgerber
> * Pierre de Buyl
> * Thomas Caswell
> * Andy Salnikov
> * Darren Dale
> * Robert David Grant
> * Toon Verstraelen
> * Many others who contributed bug reports and testing
