	related to wrong custom tag read/write code.

	<li> aclocal and autoheader should be executed after
	libtoolize.  Also add '-I .' to aclocal invocation to check
	current directory for macros.

	<li> nmake.opt: Link with the user32.lib in windowed mode. As per bug
	<a href=""></a>

	<li> nmake.opt, make it easier to rename the libtiff DLL.

	<li> configure, Added --enable-rpath option to embed
	linker paths into library binary.


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




	<li> tiff.h: Revert back libtiff data type definitions as per
	bug <a href=""></a>

	<li> tif_dirread.c: Do not forget about TIFF_VARIABLE2 when
	checking for tag count in TIFFReadDirectory() function. As per bug
	<a href=""></a>

	<li> tif_getimage.c: Support for multiple-alpha-channelled
	RGB-images as per bug
	<a href=""></a>

	<li> tif_getimage.c: #define A1 bracketing for clean build on
	SunPro compiler.

	<li> tif_dirwrite.c: Always write TIFFTAG_SUBIFD using LONG type
	as per bugs
	<a href=""></a> and
	<a href=""></a>.

	<li> tif_win32.c: Use char* strings instead of TCHAR in windowed
	mode as per bug
	<a href=""></a>

	<li> tif_dir.c, tif_dirread.c: Remove TIFFReassignTagToIgnore()
	call from the TIFFReadDirectory() function. TIFFReassignTagToIgnore
	must be removed in the future, as it was never used properly. As per
	bug <a href=""></a>

	<li> tif_jpeg.c: Added a work-around in order to allow
	compilation with the heavily modified version of libjpeg delivered
	with Cygwin.

	<li> tif_dir.c: Properly handle tags, which have the uint32
	counts. As per bug
	<a href=""></a>

	<li> tif_unix.c: Make UNIX module compilable (and usable)
	on Windows.

	<li> tiff.h: Added Adobe DNG tags.

	<li> tif_aux.c: Set the appropriate ReferenceBlackWhite array for
	YCbCr image which lacks that tag (noted by Hans Petter Selasky).

	<li> tif_color.c: Division by zero fixed (Hans Petter Selasky).

	<li> tif_stream.cxx, tiffio.h: Added C++ stream interface
	contributed by Edward Lam (see
	<a href=""></a>
	for details). Those who want to use C++ streams should
	#include <tiffio.hxx>.

	<li> tif_open.c: Removed close() in TIFFClientOpen() if file
	is bad. This is the callers responsibility.
	<a href=""></a>

	<li> tiffio.h, tif_win32.c, libtiff.def}: Added TIFFOpenW()
	function to work with the double byte strings (used to represent
	filenames in some locales). As per bug
	<a href=""></a>

	<li> tif_dirread.c: Fixed problem when fetching BitsPerSample and
	Compression tags of type LONG from broken TIFFS as per bug
	<a href=""></a>

	<li> tif_dirinfo.c: Fixed definition for TIFFTAG_RICHTIFFIPTC,
	the writecount should have uint32 type. As per bug
	<a href=""></a>

	<li> tif_write.c: Fixed wrong if() statement in
	TIFFAppendToStrip() function as per bug
	<a href=""></a>

	<li> tif_dirinfo.c: Change definition for TIFFTAG_EXTRASAMPLES
	field. The caller should supply a count when setting this field. As
	per bug <a href=""></a>. 

	<li> tif_jpeg.c, tif_ojpeg.c: TIFFTAG_JPEGTABLES should have
	uint32 count. Use this type everywhere.

	<li> tif_next.c: avoid use of u_long and u_char types.

	<li> tif_fax3.c: Fixed case with the wrong decode routines
	choosing when the incorrect Group4Options tag set. As per bug
	<a href=""></a>

	<li> tif_dirwrite.c: Fixed problem with passing count variable of
	wrong type when writing the TIFF_BYTE/TIFF_SBYTE tags in

	<li> tif_compress.c: Zero division problem fixed (Vladimir Nadvornik,
	Dmitry V. Levin).


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



	<li> fax2ps.c: Be able to extract the first page (#0). As per bug
	<a href=""></a>
