That's pretty good news and the move to a Gitlab instance as development
platform also helps a lot to obtain your sources in a convenient way.
However, I'm a bit confused about the versioning. Can you give some
hint what version I should use for the libsis-jhdf5-java package. The
old version was 14.12.6 and I wonder what might be your next versioning
step. I simply want to make sure that this prerelease has a highter
version than 14.12.6 but a lower version than your next official release.

Same to you and thanks for your work on this
