Hi,

I tried the current libtiff 4.0 beta, and found it lacks support for the 
extra tags defined for TIFF-FX files (RFC3949). I am wondering if that 
is simply because nobody did the work, or because it was intentionally 
left out. RFC3949 look a long time to be finalised, and there were 
patent wrangles between Xerox and Adobe for a while. It looks like 
that's all sorted out, though, and the IETF seems happy enough to have 
published RFC3949.

If there is nothing to block the addition of the relevant tags, I will 
cook up a patch to add support.

Regards,
Steve
