TIFF2MEBES Revision History
Rev 2.11 02-10-2016Improved TIFF Header Processing
Adding routines for better processing of TIFF files that were missing expected fields in the header. Previously such files would not load or would display incorrectly.
Rev 2.08 10-21-2015New Licensing
This version has the new Flex node locked licensing.TIFF2GBR Fix
Fixes IPPOS* issue for Gerber output.
Rev 2.06 09-3-2015Bug with LZW TIFF files
Bug fixes for LZW compressed TIFF files. For certain multi-row per stripe files with nonzero predictor value, proper reinitialization of row data was not being performed. This has been corrected with this release.64 Bit for large file support
64 bit versions of the core engines and their supporting DLLs have been included with this release.
Rev 2.04 06-25-2015Software Update
A bug was introduced in v2.03 (because of the Microsoft Windows VS 2008 build) in the reading of LZW compressed TIFF. This has been corrected with this release.
Rev 2.03 06-22-2015Software Updates
This release fixes the problem where the last byte in a BMP file is dropped.
Rev 1.44 07-15-2009RGB Indexed Color, and Greyscale TIFF support
This version now supports RGB, Indexed Color, and Greyscale TIFF including LZW and no compression. In addition, the -union command line option creates more optimal (merges most touching scan lines into a single boundary) GDSII output.Gerber Output
Tiff2mebes can now export Gerber RS274X output.Options saved to registry
Selected options and input/output directories are saved into the registry.View options
Input and output file can now be viewed.
Rev 1.34 Windows 10-23-2008BMP Detection by GUI
The Dialog has been fixed. It can now accept BMP files that starts with 'BM'. The file selection can also filter BMP files now. The engine did not change. It is still v1.33
Rev 1.34 Solaris/Linux 07-17-2008Tiff compression 5
We upgraded our software to support Tiff compression version 5.
Rev 1.33 Windows 07-1-2008Color bitmap file
Our TIFF and BMP reader now supports a black and white image that is defined in a color file.
Rev 1.31 Windows 05-16-2008Access violations
A pervasive coding error that could potentially lead to out of program data space errors (access violations) was fixed. This manifests itself in the new output as padding in MEBES contain "0"s, not garbageData crosses stripe boundaries
Previously data could cross stripe boundaries - now data that crosses a stripe boundary is broken up into the necessary number of pieces and appears in the correct stripe definition.Data loss due to insufficient memory
Tiff2mebes is now reporting data loss, which caused due to insufficient memory.Data loss due to file size
Data loss due to file size limitations of MEBES IV now detected and reported - before it was not reported. now the user is prompted to use a larger grid or MEBES V.Open or nested stripes
Open or nested stripes are now not created - previously they were created.Empty segments
Empty segments, ie. segments that contain no drawable data are not created, entries for those segments in the segment directory now have the offset "0". Empty segments are illegal in MEBES IV and V..USB licensing
Tiff2mebes now supports USB licensingDate code
The date code format is now correct for MEBES V.
Rev 1.30 Windows 05-12-2008Polarity Problem
Tiff2mebes generated the wrong polarity unexpectedly. This has been fixed.
Rev 1.20a Linux 09-20-2007Library problem
Tiff2mebes was crashing when libcxa.so.3 was missing. This had been fixed.
Rev 1.20 Linux 03-30-2007Tiff to MEBES problem on Linux
Tiff2mebes created a bad MEBES output on Linux. This had been fixed.
Rev 1.17 Windows 05-31-2005Tiff to Tiff snapping issue
Fixed a problem reported by Kovio in the Tiff2Tiff conversion when scaling down a file from 25400DPI to 3175.
Rev 1.05 03-23-03Support for output files over 2GB
More than 4 Gigabytes GDS/MEBES output supported.Pixel / Stripe
In tiff2mebes v1.03/v1.04 (Unix/Windows), when the pixel height specified is larger than stripe height, the MEBES output wouldn't be correct. This has been fixed.Rounding problem
In tiff2mebes v1.03/v1.04(Unix/Windows), GDS output had rounding problems causing GDS output to be truncated. This has been fixed. For MEBES, different grid can be specified. User should take care that the grid and pixel size should be specified in such a way that "(Dimension in pixel * pixel size / grid )" is a round number, to avoid rounding problems. .
Rev 1.04 12-16-02Error messages
Error messages are more descriptive and explaining what is wrong with the source file.
Rev 1.03a 09-11-02New Install
A new install script is now part of the release (prior, the program had to be installed manually) as well as support for flexlm licensing.Multi-strip TIFF
We've added support for TIFF files that are internally broken into strips. For large TIFF files this is not uncommon.
Rev 1.01 08-20-02Error Messages
Error messages in case the tiff file format is not supported.Image Size
Image Size in pixels and microns is being displyed in the menu after the file is selected.
Rev 1.00 08-15-02Initial Release
Initial release today on Windows. This program is shipped with the Flexlm license manager.
