1994.07.27 02:57 "v3.3beta015 available on sgi.com", by Sam Leffler

I've placed a new version of the TIFF software out on sgi.com in the public ftp area. This version is still "beta" in that it has not undergone thorough testing and it is lacking up to date documentation. I do however believe that it works well enough for folks to try out. (I use it daily in my every day work and as an integral part of my fax software.) This version basically was done to try to clear 3+ years of back fixes and enhancements from my mailbox. This version does NOT include JPEG-in-TIFF support nor does it include the rewrite of the directory tag handling that I've promised. Both these facilities will appear before fall. The enclosed list details what is new in this version relative to v3.3beta002.

If you've sent me stuff and it didn't go in this distribution there are several possible reasons. Your change may have conflicted with another change that I preferred. More likely your change was presented as a non-context diff and the code had changed so much that I was no longer able to safely identify how and where to apply it (this is especially true when the change is for a non-SGI machine). If you're able to bear with me I'm planning to devote more energy to this software in the near term. This means that if you send me a new patch relative to the v3.3beta015 code I will do my best to either get it in or once and for all resolve the status of your change. Please also understand that I've not updated the documentation. Many people have made great contributions to the software and I will acknowledge them as soon as I can update the documentation.

The new version is available in several forms:

v3.3beta015.src.tar.Z           compressed tar source file
v3.3beta015.src.tar.gz          GNU zip'd tar source file
v3.3.0.patch-01                 shell script to patch v3.3beta002 source
v3.3.0.patch-01.gz              GNU zip'd patch script

This distribution includes the following noteworthy changes:

As always, please send bug fixes either to me or to the tiff mailing list. Context diffs work best for me.
