Lee,

Actually there is no precise release scedule, because it is totally
depend on the time I can spend on the project, and it is extremely
limited resource. The project is not dead, I am trying to fix important
issues ASAP, but again, it is a matter of my spare time available.
I am encouraging users to try out 3.9.0 branch and report any possible
problems via Bugzilla (actually there are several ones that already
found and fixed since the beta release). My plan is that there will be
one more beta of 3.9.0 before final cut. 4.0 will be released as the
next alpha when the problem with tags will be resolved.

And Bugzilla is functioning too. There are number of quite old but still
opened bugs and feature requests, but they are either hard to fix or
implement (requires considarable amount of time that we can't spend
without funding) or just left for reference signalling some kind of
problem with libtiff design. I am regularily reviewing the bug list and
trying to fix as much as time permits. So please, continue using
Bugzilla and you also can kick me by e-mail if you need some problem
fixed immediately.

Best regards,
Andrey
