Also of note is that due to libtiff 3.X.X not using proper shared 
library naming conventions, the name of the shared library produced 
from 3.9.0 is the same as 3.9.0beta.  This is a problem for any system 
which is already using 3.9.0beta since any dependent 
libraries/applications will need to be recompiled.

Starting with libtiff 4.0.0, libtiff will be using proper ELF 
versioning and will not be basing its shared library numbering 
directly on the libtiff version number.

OS distributions are free to apply their own shared library versioning 
rules in the mean time.
