Is there a timeframe for the release of version 3.7.1? There are some important bug fixes in the latest build. Unfortunately implementing LibTIFF into our product requires a lot of customization, so we can't use CVS unless we know it's been fully tested and robust.

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.

Best Regards,
