I am using the 3.8.2_1 libtiff version and I saw that some fixes below have been released since this version.

Where can I find the last revision?

Thanks in advance

Best regards

tiff2pdf.c has seen quite a few fixes in the last couple years. It is likely

this is already fixed. The following looks most promising out of the cvs log:

revision 1.40

Fix for TIFFTAG_JPEGTABLES tag fetching and significant upgrade of the whole utility as per bug <http://bugzilla.remotesensing.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1560> http://bugzilla.remotesensing.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1560 Now we don't need tiffiop.h in tiff2pdf anymore and will open output PDF file

using TIFFClientOpen() machinery as it is implemented by Leon Bottou.
