Hi TIFF dude,
I just pulled down the 3.2.patch file for the 3.2beta.tar.Z distribution of the TIFF library. I have two questions...
- The 3.2.patch file seems to turn the README file into the version 3.1 file. I assume this is a mistake, and there should be a 3.2.patch version of the README file. Is there?
- The VERSION file went from 3.21 to 3.20. Again, is this a mistake?
All the other changed files have newer RCS tags in them, so I assume they are OK.
The README file on the ftp server says that the 3.0 version of the library is there to build with the pbm utilities. I have actually fixed the tifftopnm.c file to work with the 3.2 version of the library. It was a definite bug in the tifftopnm.c file, and I'm suprised it worked at all. Would you like me to mail the tifftopnm.c file to you?
Finally, are the JPEG compression routines going to be available in the near future? I've already seen a few JPEG compressed TIFF images, and the only program I have that understands them can only display them.
Thanks in advance for your answers!!!!!
