GeoTIFF represents an effort by over 160 different remote sensing,
GIS, cartographic, and surveying related companies and organizations
to establish a TIFF based interchange format for georeferenced raster
imagery. This package provides a library and utilities for
manipulating images in this format.

This is a routine 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 libgeotiff-1.2.5a-1
for cygwin-1.5 are documentation related (the README references
cygport-0.9.5 and cygwin-1.7.0-43, and the /usr/share/doc/ layout is
influenced by the cygport changes between 0.4.x and 0.9.x).

CHANGES (since 1.2.3a-1)
o Fork for cygwin-1.7 development
o Update to latest upstream release (actually svn as of 20090312)
o Modified to work with stock cygport-0.9.5
o A little less code re-organization than before, now that
  upstream has adopted autotools.
o Rebuilt against libproj1
o Updated hint files to reflect new packaging (libproj1, zlib0)
