In case anyone's interested in the status of tiff 4.x in debian, I'll provide an update. Based on lessons learned with similar transitions to the png and jpeg libraries, it basically isn't going to happen unless the tiff library versions its symbols. Without symbol versioning in the

Bummer. I will look into doing this based on the approach used for libjpeg. It would have been good if this had been implemented prior to the 4.0.0 release. Now we are faced with the situation that an application built against a libtiff which does not use versioned symbols will stop working if a libtiff which uses versioned symbols is inserted in its place. A defense against that is to increment 'current' and leave 'age' set to zero for the newer library since the whole interface has changed. I am not particularly religious about library file names but others may be disturbed by such changes.
