for cygwin have been uploaded.
New package for Cygwin.

64bit version is distributed
HDF4Â® is a library and multi-object file format for storing and
managing data between machines. HDF4 is a very different technology
The HDF Group recommends that, other than for working with existing
HDF4 data, new applications use HDF5 since HDF5 addresses important
deficiencies of HDF4.
NASA maintains a network of Earth Observing Satellites that transmit
huge volumes of new imagery data daily in HDF4. As a result, HDF4
is used extensively in the Earth Sciences.
