As some of you have probably already noticed, libtiff-3.5.5 is available.
>From a pure experimental point of view, DO NOT USE IT, use 3.4.x instead :
many programs relies on library internals and since they changed from 3.4.x to
some packages might have problems identifying/using the new version
(ex : gimp 1.1.23 configure script seems not detect it properly, and worse,
won't work properly with 3.5 at all ... even the one from CVS)

It's not always a good thing to try to stay on the bleeding edge of software
versionning ... :(
( Maybe is it worth to mention this in the book ? )
