There are no earth shattering changes, but I have prepared a libtiff 4.0.0 beta2. Mostly this is to roll in some changes based on an old coverity scan of libtiff, and to produce a new tarball I can pass off to coverity for analysis.

I've been away from email for a little over a week and am just now seeing this. I will do some detailed testing including trying to reproduce all open bugs in the debian bug tracking system (there are only three or four). I will plan to do this this weekend. I hope there will not be a 4.0.0 release prior to that. It is probable that 4.0.0 will not be part of the next debian release as a tiff transition is pretty hard, but we'll see.

Is there any plan to do a final 3.9.0 release? There were some unintended ABI changes in 3.9.0 beta 1, but I believe fixes were committed. I didn't miss 3.9.0, did I?

I will re-enter all the bugs I was previously tracking in the old bugzilla.
