Is there a timeframe for the release of version 3.7.1?
No strict timeframe. I want to release 3.7.1 as soon as possible (probably in next weeks), but it may be delayed if I will be too busy at this time.
This leads me to another question. What is the policy for testing LibTIFF? Are there unit tests that are run frequently? Is testing in this manner been a philosophy for a long time, or is it relatively new? I do recall discussion a while ago about a test suite using checksum validation when encoding and decoding images. That's a procedure we also use in-house for our unit testing and is certainly quite valuable to us.
For now we have a very preliminary test suite (available as a 'check' target). This work just started and I will continue writing tests, but it is quite large task, so I can't say when we will have more or less complete set of tests. And there is no attempt to implement the previously discussed suite with images/checksums, this was leaved for future development.
