I'm seeing a large performance hit with 3.7b vs. 3.6.1 compiled under MS VC7 or VC6.
Our the code section loops through rows doing, TIFFReadEncodedStrip and TIFFWriteScanline. The perfomance difference is approximately 30% and I can compare with a simple recompile of our application linking one version of the library vs. the other.
I think I know why the new libtiff is slower than the older one. I have implemented a new feature (update compressed files in place), but this results in perfomance degradation. I know how to improve things, so the fix will come shortly.
