    Thanks to everyone who has committed code, patches, filed bug reports or otherwise contributed to the development of this version!

    ๐Ÿ”Œ Especially, a big thank you to Oliver Schmidtmer (@Schmidor) for providing numerous bug fixes for the TIFF plugin, Ivan Khaldeev (@ikhaldeev) for improvements to the TIFF plugin, James Dudley (@blueinblue) for his persistence in finding the bug that caused the multipage compressed TIFF writing offset issue. :-)
