Libtiff 3.9.0 is now released. Please read about it at http://www.remotesensing.org/libtiff/v3.9.0.html.

This document doesn't clearly answer the first two questions any packager will have about it, which are whether 3.9.0 is ABI compatible with 3.8.2, and if not how about source-code compatible? I could consider dropping 3.9.0 into Fedora 12 if it's ABI compatible, but if not it's probably too late...
