1994.02.24 15:04 "Updated version of LIBTIFFW", by Soren Pingel Dalsgaard
I have released a minor update of libtiffw. It is available from
daimi.aau.dk in directory
There are still some problems in connection with reading LZW images with large strips, I'll look at that soon (I hope). Support for writing CCITT-RLE has been included. Also all the patches posted during the last year has been applied to the sources.
TIFF *WRITING* with this library is functioning 99.9% (there's always one more bug :-), reading still needs a bit of testing.
Fax writing has been "fixed" so that white is always 0 and black is always 1. If you disagree with this way of handling images, consider it a "known bug". I still maintain that addressing white/black in a compression scheme doesn't make sense. bit/byte/word/long values can be used - not colours. That would imply consulting PhotometricInterpretation and GreyResponseCurve (and possibly some other tags that I cannot remember right now?).
Please mail any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
