The tiff package provides libraries and utilities for manipulating
TIFF image files.

This is a security and packaging update.

[[ compiled using gcc-3.4.4-999 ]]

This is the first release specific for cygwin-1.7; the only differences
between this package and the simultaneously-released tiff-3.8.2-4 for
cygwin-1.5 are documentation related (the README references cygport-0.9.4
and cygwin-1.7.0-42, and the /usr/share/doc/ layout is influenced by the
cygport changes between 0.4.x and 0.9.x).

CHANGES (since 3.8.2-3)
o Fork for cygwin-1.7 development.
o Update to work with stock cygport-0.9.4
o Updated hint files for new package names (modular X11,
  split-up zlib).
o Drop Gentoo security fixes; adopt Debian ones

  - plus backports tiff2pdf from 4.0.0beta, and fixes a
    number of other bugs
o Merged C++ development and runtime files back into
  the main packages.
  - REMOVED: libtiffxx5 & libtiffxx-devel packages
o Split tiffgt utility into its own package. This way,
  the main tiff package need not depend on libglut (and
  libGLU, and libGL, and a host of X libraries).
  - ADDED: tiff-opengl package
