Description Lee Howard 2012-05-29 16:27:36 EDT
Now that Fedora comes with jbigkit available from the Fedora repositories, libtiff should also now be built with JBIG support.  Just add a --enable-jbig to the configure line (or remove the --disable-jbig).

This is particularly useful for fax users (HylaFAX/HylaFAX+) who would like to receive JBIG-compressed faxes and make use of that fax with a viewer that doesn't support JBIG.  (The user would use libtiff to convert the fax from JBIG compression to something decipherable by the viewing program, such as G4.)

Oh, the patents finally lapsed?  Cool.
