Hi Bas,

I've decided to issue a 1.7.0RC1 since there's a new geokey in the 
interface, but otherwise it's a tiny increment over 1.6.0

Source packages can be found at:



News is:

libgeotiff 1.7.0

* Add CoordinateEpochGeoKey = 5120 of type DOUBLE to store coordinate 
epoch of
   tie points / geotransform matrix for dynamic CRS.
   See https://github.com/opengeospatial/geotiff/pull/99
* geo_normalize.h/c: rename variables to please codespell
* GTIFGetGCSInfoEx(): use proj_crs_get_datum_forced() for PROJ >= 8 to avoid
   issues with datum ensembles (fixes #54)
* GTIFGetGCSInfoEx(): remove dead code (GDAL Coverity CID 1432690)
* geo_normalize.c: follow-up to e06625c4e5bcce9f9217d1d5a43dc6af73156283 
to avoid
   look up of user-defined GeogGeodeticDatumGeoKey that cause PROJ 
warnings (fixes #41)

My software is free, but my time generally not.
