Was there ever a consensus from the discussions in Oct 2004 concerning the recommended extension for BigTIFF?
The samples presented on the BigTIFF web page (http://www.awaresystems.be/imaging/tiff/bigtiff.html) use "BTF", while the samples just posted to this list use "TF2". I have also found separate references that also recommend "TF8" and "TIFF".
What is the official word?
It does not seem that there is an "official word" (what qualifies as "official"), but I gather that the consensus of opinion is to still call it "TIFF" (or "TIF").
