Libtiff 4.0.0beta4 is now released.  Please read about it at 
http://www.remotesensing.org/libtiff/v4.0.0.html.

Source packages are available at ftp://ftp.remotesensing.org/pub/libtiff and 
will soon be available at mirror sites.

Libtiff 4.0.0beta4 is produced from the default branch in the libtiff 
CVS repository.  Its focus is to introduce major new features such as 
support for BigTIFF.  Libtiff 4.0.0 is NOT ABI compatible with 3.X.X 
releases.  In particular, it uses a 64-bit toff_t and 64-bit tmsize_t.

Existing applications are likely to work with libtiff 4.0.0 with a 
simple re-compile as long as they took care to use libtiff typedefs 
and avoid sloppy casting.  The most common problem is with code which 
assumes that a returned file offset or size can be stored in a 32-bit 
type.  Users of libtiff are encouraged to test their applications with 
libtiff 4.0.0beta4 and make any required changes so that their 
application will work with it.

There is reason to believe that libtiff 4.0.0beta4 is as reliable as 
the stable releases.

Please report any bugs according to the procedure documented at 
http://www.remotesensing.org/libtiff/bugs.html.

Thanks,

Bob
