I was wondering if there are going to be any API or ABI incompatible changes before the final release of libtiff 4.

If you care about Windows, bug 1941 [1] is still open. If it gets fixed, then the behaviour for the following functions will change on Windows: TIFFFdOpen(), TIFFFileno(), TIFFSetFileno(), TIFFClientdata(), TIFFSetClientdata().

I am not quite as concerned with Windows behavior as Unix, since shipping dependent DLLs is the norm on Windows, but this could change if CoApp[1] becomes popular (as I hope it does).

I think this should be fixed before libtiff 4. Is anyone interested in making a release blocker bug in bugzilla? We could add this bug to it.

Also, I wonder why the tif_win32.c file isn't enabled by default on Windows. With tif_unix.c, the file interface is limited to 2GB on Windows. tif_win32.c is needed for large file access (the whole point of libtiff 4?).
