  1. improvements in the handling of photmetricinterpretation=5 when the data isn't just CMYK. The kind of spot colour handling that's provided in other formats such as CMYK (or Lab or sRGB) equivalents for each colorant, plus an indication of whether the colour should be regarded as opaque, or normal, or transparent etc. for trapping purposes.

Very odd - my last couple of paragraphs were callously deleted! Is there a message length limit on this listserve, or is it simply applying artistic judgement to my message? :-)

Just for completeness:

  1. Adoption of the ICC spec for embedding source profiles.

I realise that A implies that I think there is a future for TIFF as print-ready files. That's certainly true for 1-bit G4 compressed data to drive plate setters, but one step up the workflow is less obvious at the moment.
