I've looked over the changes between 3.7.4 and 3.8.0. As far as I can tell, there should be no incompatible ABI changes. To your knowledge, are there any incompatible ABI changes? There are clearly a bunch of new functions, so applications that use them won't run with a 3.7.4 or earlier shared library, but as far as I can tell, any older program should run with the new library.
You are absolutely right, it shouldn't be any ABI changes with except of several new functions (but we have a new function almost in every libtiff release!).
