For those members of the mailing list who may package libtiff for various distributions, I'm reporting that tiff 3.9.1 has been in debian for 13 days (since minutes after its release) with no reported problems. The critical problem in 3.9.0 that prompted 3.9.1 was detected in debian, among other places, and as tiff is widely used, major problems after releases have historically been found within two or three days. So my opinion, for what it's worth, this provides at least one data point to suggest that 3.9.1 is ready to be distributed as part of any system that previously included 3.8.2. Just my $0.02.
If there are any debian users out there looking for an easy way to test 4.0.0 beta 4, you can find it in debian's "experimental" distribution. The debian version is pristine -- no patches at all have been applied.
