I haven't heard any negative feedback on the libgeotiff 1.5.2 beta, so I
have made 1.5.2 final.


The release includes new EPSG 6.17 .csv files.  This release also includes
the new "simple tags" interface so that it is easier to use libgeotiff
to process geotiff tags in other file formats, such as LAS.  For more
info on liblas see:


Other notes in the ChangeLog include:

     * bin/geotifcp.c: Support for -4 option to set from proj.4 def.

     * geotiff_proj4.c: Preliminary proj4->geotiff function, quite incomplete

2008-05-09  Frank Warmerdam  <warmerdam at pobox.com>

     * geo_simpletags.{c,h}, geo_new.c, geotiff.h: Introduce "simple tags"

     use of liblas.
