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



  <li> Updated to use Automake 1.15 and Libtool 2.4.5


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




  <li> TIFFCheckDirOffset(): avoid uint16 overflow
       when reading more than 65535 directories, and effectively error out when
       eaching that limit.

  <li> TIFFNumberOfDirectories(): generate error in case of directory count

  <li> TIFFAdvanceDirectory(): If nextdir is found to
       be defective, then set it to zero before returning error in order
       to terminate processing of truncated TIFF.

  <li> JPEG-in-TIFF: recognize SOF2, SOF9 and SOF10
       markers to avoid emitting a warning. Fix for compatibility with mozjpeg library.
       Note: the default settings of mozjpeg will produce progressive scans, which
       is forbidden by the TechNote.

  <li> JPEG-in-TIFF: Fix regression introduced in 3.9.3/4.0.0 that caused
       all tiles/strips to include quantization tables even when the jpegtablesmode
       had the JPEGTABLESMODE_QUANT bit set.
       Also add explicit removal of Huffman tables when jpegtablesmode has the
       JPEGTABLESMODE_HUFF bit set, which avoids Huffman tables to be emitted in the
       first tile/strip (only useful in update scenarios. create-only was

  <li> JPEG-in-TIFF: fix segfault in JPEGFixupTagsSubsampling() on
       corrupted image where tif->tif_dir.td_stripoffset == NULL.
       (<a href="">#2471</a>)

  <li> NeXT codec: add new tests to check that we don't read outside of
       the compressed input stream buffer.

  <li> NeXT codec: check that BitsPerSample = 2. Fixes
       <a href="">#2487</a> (CVE-2014-8129)

  <li> NeXT codec: in the "run mode", use tilewidth for tiled images
       instead of imagewidth to avoid crash

  <li> tif_getimage.c: in OJPEG case, fix checks on strile width/height
       in the putcontig8bitYCbCr42tile, putcontig8bitYCbCr41tile and
       putcontig8bitYCbCr21tile cases.

  <li> in TIFFDefaultDirectory(), reset any already existing
       extented tags installed by user code through the extender mechaninm before
       calling the extender callback (GDAL #5054)

  <li> Fix  warnings about unused parameters.

  <li> Fix various typos in comments found by Debian lintian tool (GDAL #5756)

  <li> tif_getimage.c: avoid divide by zero on invalid YCbCr subsampling.
       (<a href="">#2235</a>)

  <li> tif_dirread.c: In EstimateStripByteCounts(), check return code
       of _TIFFFillStriles(). This solves crashing bug on corrupted
       images generated by afl.

  <li>tif_read.c: fix several invalid comparisons of a uint64 value with
       &lt;= 0 by casting it to int64 first. This solves crashing bug on corrupted
      images generated by afl.

  <li>TIFFSetField(): refuse to set negative values for
      TIFFTAG_XRESOLUTION and TIFFTAG_YRESOLUTION that cause asserts when writing
      the directory

  <li>TIFFReadDirectory(): refuse to read ColorMap or
      TransferFunction if BitsPerSample has not yet been read, otherwise reading
      it later will cause user code to crash if BitsPerSample > 1

  <li> TIFFRGBAImageOK(): return FALSE if LOGLUV with
       SamplesPerPixel != 3, or if CIELAB with SamplesPerPixel != 3 or BitsPerSample != 8

  <li> no longer use "#define snprintf _snprintf" with
       Visual Studio 2015 aka VC 14 aka MSVC 1900

  <li> LZW codec: prevent potential null dereference of sp->dec_codetab in LZWPreDecode
       (<a href="">#2459</a>)

  <li> TIFFReadBufferSetup(): avoid passing -1 size
       to TIFFmalloc() if passed user buffer size is 0
       (<a href="">#2459</a>)

  <li> TIFFReadDirEntryOutputErr(): Incorrect
       count for tag should be a warning rather than an error since
       errors terminate processing.

  <li> tif_dirinfo.c (TIFFField) : Fix data type for TIFFTAG_GLOBALPARAMETERSIFD tag.

  <li> Add definitions for TIFF/EP CFARepeatPatternDim and CFAPattern tags
       (<a href="">#2457</a>)

  <li> tif_codec.c, tif_dirinfo.c: Enlarge some fixed-size buffers that weren't
        large enough, and eliminate substantially all uses of sprintf(buf,
        ...)  in favor of using snprintf(buf, sizeof(buf), ...)
  <li> Improve pkg-config static linking by adding -lm to Libs.private when needed.

  <li> tif_write.c: tmsize_t related casting warning fixed for
        64bit linux.

  <li> tif_read.c: uint64/tmsize_t change for MSVC warnings.
       (<a href="">#2427</a>)

  <li> Fix TIFFPrintDirectory's handling of
       field_passcount fields: it had the TIFF_VARIABLE and
       TIFF_VARIABLE2 cases backwards.

  <li> PixarLog codec: Improve previous patch for CVE-2012-4447
       (to enlarge tbuf for possible partial stride at end) so that
       overflow in the integer addition is detected.

  <li>tif_{unix,vms,win32}.c (_TIFFmalloc): ANSI C does not
        require malloc() to return NULL pointer if requested allocation
        size is zero.  Assure that _TIFFmalloc does.

  <li>tif_zip.c: Avoid crash on NULL error messages.


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



  <li> tiff2pdf: Fis various crashes and memory buffer access errors (oCERT-2014-013).
  <li> tiff2pdf: fix buffer overflow on some YCbCr JPEG compressed images.
                 (<a href="">#2445</a>)
  <li> tiff2pdf: fix buffer overflow on YCbCr JPEG compressed image.
                 (<a href="">#2443</a>)
  <li> tiff2pdf: check return code of TIFFGetField() when reading TIFFTAG_SAMPLESPERPIXEL
  <li> tiff2pdf: fix crash due to invalid tile count.
  <li> tiff2pdf: Detect invalid settings of BitsPerSample/SamplesPerPixel for CIELAB / ITULAB
  <li> tiff2pdf: Assure that memory size calculations for
                 _TIFFmalloc() do not overflow the range of tmsize_t.
  <li> tiff2pdf: Avoid crash when TIFFTAG_TRANSFERFUNCTION tag returns one channel,
       with the other two channels set to NULL.
  <li> tiff2pdf: close PDF file. (<a href="">#2479</a>)
  <li> tiff2pdf: Preserve input file directory order when pages
       are tagged with the same page number.
  <li> tiff2pdf.c: terminate after failure of allocating ycbcr buffer
       (<a href="">#2449</a> CVE-2013-4232)
  <li> tiff2pdf: Rewrite JPEG marker parsing in
        t2p_process_jpeg_strip to be at least marginally competent.  The
        approach is still fundamentally flawed, but at least now it won't
        stomp all over memory when given bogus input.  Fixes CVE-2013-1960.
  <li> tiffdump: Guard against arithmetic overflow when calculating allocation buffer sizes.
  <li> tiffdump: fix crash due to overflow of entry count.
  <li> tiffdump: Fix double-free bug.

  <li> pal2rgb, thumbnail: fix crash by disabling TIFFTAG_INKNAMES copying.
       (<a href="">#2484</a>, CVE-2014-8127)
  <li> thumbnail: fix out-of-buffer write.
       (<a href="">#2489</a>, CVE-2014-8128)

       (<a href="">#2493</a>, CVE-2014-8128)
  <li> tiffcp: fix crash when converting YCbCr JPEG-compressed to none.
       (<a href="">#2480</a>)
  <li> bmp2tiff: fix crash due to int overflow related to input BMP dimensions
  <li> tiffcrop: fix crash due to invalid TileWidth/TileHeight
  <li> tiffcrop: fix segfault if bad value passed to -Z option
       ( <a href="">#2459</a>)
       and add missing va_end in dump_info
  <li> thumbnail, tiffcrop: "fix" heap read over-run found with
       Valgrind and Address Sanitizer on test suite
  <li> fax2ps: check malloc()/realloc() result. (<a href="">#2470</a>)
  <li> gif2tiff: apply patch for CVE-2013-4243. (<a href="">#2451</a>)
  <li> gif2tiff: fix possible OOB write. (<a href="">#2452</a>, CVE-2013-4244)

  <li> tiff2rgba: fix usage message in that zip was wrongly described
  <li> tiffinfo: Default various values fetched with TIFFGetField() to avoid being uninitialized.
  <li> tiff2ps: Fix bug in auto rotate option code.
  <li> ppm2tiff: avoid zero size buffer vulnerability (CVE-2012-4564).
       check the linebytes calculation too, get the max() calculation
       straight, avoid redundant error messages, check for malloc
  <li> tiffset: now supports a -u option to unset a tag.
       (<a href="">#2419</a>)
  <li> Fix warnings about unused parameters.
  <li> rgb2ycbcr, tiff2bw, tiff2pdf, tiff2ps, tiffcrop, tiffdither :
       Enlarge some fixed-size buffers that weren't
       large enough, and eliminate substantially all uses of sprintf(buf,
       ...)  in favor of using snprintf(buf, sizeof(buf), ...), so as to
       protect against overflow of fixed-size buffers.  This responds in
       particular to CVE-2013-1961 concerning overflow in tiff2pdf.c's
