This document describes the changes made to the software between the
<I>previous</I> and <I>current</I> versions (see above).
If you don't find something listed here, then it was not done in this
timeframe, or it was not considered important enough to be mentioned.

<LI><A HREF="#tools">Changes in the tools</A>

<P><HR WIDTH=65% ALIGN=right>


<LI>support was added for building the library as a DSO under HP-UX with 
    the native C compiler
<LI>tools are now built with explicit pathnames for the DSO under IRIX,
    Solaris, and Linux
<LI>DSO configuration support for Linux was changed to require that
    <B></B> only be readable (not executable)

<P><HR WIDTH=65% ALIGN=right>


<LI>support was add for ICC: <TT>NumberOfInks</TT>, and <TT>ICCProfile</TT>
<LI>a memory leak caused by doing <TT>TIFFSetDirectory(0)</TT> was fixed
<LI>a bug was fixed whereby certain multi-directory files were not
    properly handled when accessed by mapping the data into memory 
<LI>the strip chopping support is now always compiled
    into the library with the default usage controlled by a
    <TT>STRIPCHOP_DEFAULT</TT> configuration parameter
<LI>the strip chopping support no longer chops tiled images
<LI>all static strings are now const--for shared libraries
<LI>the logic for estimating the strip size of images without
    a <TT>StripByteCounts</TT> tag was improved by handling
    <TT>PlanarContig</TT> images differently from <TT>PlanarSeparate</TT>
<LI>a bug was fixed in the G3 codec when converting the Y resolution
    of data specified in metric units
<LI>a bug was fixed in the G3/G4 decoder for data where lines terminate
    with a v0 code
<LI>the <TT>TIFFRGBAImage</TT> support was changed to scale 16-bit colormap
    entries more conservatively to avoid problems with applications
    that do not generate fully saturated pixel values
<LI>the LZW decoder was changed to use a more conservative scheme when
    bounds checking the hash table array; this avoids pitfalls with
    systems that load objects into memory in unusual locations
<LI>a bug was fixed in <TT>TIFFPrintDirectory</TT>'s handling of the
    <TT>InkNames</TT> tag
<LI><TT>TIFFPrintDirectory</TT> now understands <TT>NumberOfInks</TT>
    and ICC-related tags
<LI>the routines for reading image data now provide more useful information
    when a read error is encountered
<LI>support was added for compiling with Microsoft Visual C++ 4.0

<P><HR WIDTH=65% ALIGN=right>


<LI>a bug was fixed in <B>pal2rgb</B>'s colormap handling
<LI><B>tiff2ps</B> now includes John Wehle's changes for maintaining 
    the aspect ratio
    of images when scaling and for honoring the deadzone on a page when
    generating PostScript Level II
<LI><B>tiff2ps</B> does a better job guarding against the mishandling
    of greyscale images
<LI><B>tiff2ps</B> now correctly converts X- and Y-resolution values
    specified in metric units
<LI><B>tiffdump</B> has a new <TT>-m</TT> option to control the maximum
    number of indirect
    data values printed for a tag (by default 24)
<LI><B>tiffdump</B> understands several new tags
<LI><B>tiffdump</B> now shows any terminating null in ASCII strings
<LI><B>tiffinfo</B> now suppresses strip chopping when interpreting an image;
    a new <TT>-z</TT> option has been added to enable strip chopping
