2000.03.29 05:05 "tiff 3.5.5 release & lzw-compression-kit 1.1 release", by M. L. Welles

tiff 3.5.5 is officially available. Hopefully there won't be *too*
much wrong with it. There's been quite a few changes and (most
importantly) some pretty important bug fixes. Please take a look at
your leasure. I think we've incorporated most of the pending patches
and addressed most of the concerns that have filtered in since the 3.5.4
release. If not, please let us know -- it probably wasn't
intentional.

Along with 3.5.5, there's a new version of the lzw-compression-kit, v
1.1 -- it's necessary that you get it, too, in order to enable lzw
compression in tiff 3.5.5. Usual crazy US patent restrictions apply.

As always, they're both available at http://www.libtiff.org/, and
ftp://ftp.onshore.com/pub/libtiff/.

The change log for libtiff since the last release follows:
