The changes in this release are as follows:
This version included a totally new implementation of the Old JPEG
module. There is no longer any need to patch libjpeg, and many
previously unsupported Old JPEG files should be working now. Support
for the JBIG compression scheme (34661 code) was added. A tiffcrop
utility that does the same as tiffcp but also can crop, extract,
rotate, and mirror images was added. Many bugfixes were made in the
library and tools. 

Release focus:
5 - Major feature enhancements

Project description:
libtiff provides support for the Tag Image File Format (TIFF), a
widely used format for storing image data. The latest version of the
TIFF specification is available on-line in several different formats,
as are a number of TIFF Technical Notes (TTN's). Included in this
software distribution is a library, libtiff, for reading and writing
TIFF, a small collection of tools for doing simple manipulations of
TIFF images on UNIX systems, and documentation on the library and
tools. A small assortment of TIFF-related software for UNIX that has
been contributed by others is also included. The library, along with
associated tool programs, should handle most of your needs for
reading and writing TIFF images on 32- and 64-bit machines.
