I'm interested in a BigTIFF supporting stable release of LibTIFF.
Does one exist?
If not when is one planned?
Here is a summary of what I've been able to find by searching the web:
There is a v4.0.0alpha development release available from ftp://ftp.remotesensing.org/pub/libtiff/ but not its mirror at http://dl.maptools.org/dl/libtiff/
The page at http://www.remotesensing.org/libtiff/v4.0.0.html describes a full 4.0.0 release that I can't find.
The home page at http://www.remotesensing.org/libtiff/ links to a press release http://www.remotesensing.org/libtiff/bigtiffpr.html which says:
> Testing and final release improvements for LibTiff 4.0 will be completed by July 30, 2007.
There is also a download purporting to be libtiff 4.0.2 available from
but this is explicitly noted as not official.
