oh?

that's an unpleasant thing to learn.

are there any plans to make it thread safe?

Does anyone know if the latest version of libtiff is thread-safe? I looked all over the internet and couldn't find the answer.

I looked through some of the code and it didn't look thread-safe.

There is clearly code in libtiff which is not thread safe. The error-reporting mechanism is not thread safe (or is at least thread-unfriendly).
