2000.11.13 14:56 "version stuff", by Frank Warmerdam


In response to a submitted bug report, I updated a bunch of stuff to improve our chances of keeping the TIFFLIB_VERSION macro up to date with new releases.

* I have made a variety of modifications in an effort to ensure the TIFFLIB_VERSION macro is automatically generated from the RELEASE-DATE file which seems to be updated regularly.

This is slightly unnerving since quite a few changes were required to get everything in order, including a new file that has to be installed as part of RPMs, etc. Please keep this in mind on the next release prepration, and it is now more important to update the RELEASE-DATE file.

Best regards,
