2022.12.15 15:00 "[Tiff] libtiff 4.5.0 is released", by Even Rouault
I've promoted rc3 as the final 4.5.0 release.
Read about this release at https://libtiff.gitlab.io/libtiff/releases/v4.5.0.html
Note in particular the ABI change due to symbol versioning (SONAME bumped to 6), and API and behavior changes related to the following items:
- Related to IFD-Loop detection refactoring, the number of IFDs that libtiff can browse through has been extended from 65535 to 1048576. This value is a build-time setting that can be configured with CMake's TIFF_MAX_DIR_COUNT variable or autoconf's --with-max-dir-count option.
- tdir_t type updated to uint32_t. This type is now used for the return value of TIFFCurrentDirectory() and TIFFNumberOfDirectories(), and as the argument of TIFFSetDirectory() and TIFFUnlinkDirectory()
