I've prepared a release candidate for libtiff v4.6.0:
Release notes at https://libtiff.gitlab.io/libtiff/releases/v4.6.0.html
Note the following warning, which is the gist of the changes since 4.5.1:
This version removes a big number of utilities that have suffered from lack of maintenance over the years and were the source of various reported security issues. See "Removed functionality" in https://libtiff.gitlab.io/libtiff/releases/v4.6.0.html#tools-changes for the list of removed utilities. Starting with libtiff v4.6.0, their source code, at this time, will still be available in the source distribution, but they will no longer be built by default, and issues related to them will no longer be accepted in the libtiff bug tracker. The only remaining supported TIFF tools are tiffinfo, tiffdump, tiffcp, tiffset and tiffsplit.
I'll promote it to final next week if no serious blocking issues are reported.
Thanks to all contributors.
My software is free, but my time generally not.
