In tiff.h (LibTiff 3.7.0), the highest datatype I'm seeing is TIFF_IFD = 13.

I can't remember where I got it from, but I'm having TIFF_UNICODE = 14, and TIFF_COMPLEX = 15. That may be correct, as the first new datatype for BigTIFF is TIFF_LONG8 = 16 (according to my own BigTIFF page http://www.awaresystems.be/imaging/tiff/bigtiff.html, that was based on the Wiki).


These two types was mentioned ob the Wiki page by Chris Cox. He said that these ones are new types and will be described in the upcoming TIFF specification.

The only place where those types appeared was that Wiki, so I don't think we should not do nothing to support the new types until the more verbosive description.

That is good question. But it can only be answered by our colleagues from Adobe.
