extract below:

Nov. 18/05 - Version 5.77 (production release)

  - Allow integer tag values to be specified in hex (with leading '0x')

Nov. 16/05 - Version 5.76

  - Tolerate extra null padding at end of TIFF images (as written by Photoshop
    CS) when rewriting TIFF images

Nov. 14/05 - Version 5.74

  - Added read support for DICOM (DCM, DC3, DIC, DICM) and ACR-NEMA (ACR)
    medical image files
  - Decode a lot more Nikon Capture information and add write ability
  - Updated Nikon makernote decoding for D200 and new AF-S Nikkor 18-200 lens
    (thanks Werner Kober)
  - Added a number of new Canon LensType's (thanks Volker Gering)
  - Recognize file types even if they have the wrong extension

Nov. 7/05 - Version 5.73

  - Added ability to shift date/time tag values
  - Extract Red/BlueBalance tags for Nikon D2Hs, D50 and D2X
  - Decode Nikon Capture Data to extract IPTC information and Rotation
  - Added a new Olympus LensType (thanks Michael Meissner)

Oct. 28/05 - Version 5.72

  - Added ability to create XMP data files.  This is more significant than it
    sounds:  The -o option may now be used to generate XMP files from
    information in any other format, or even to create an XMP file from nothing
    more than tags defined on the command line.
  - Fixed problem rewriting maker notes of some Pentax cameras
  - API Changes:
      - Added CanWrite() and CanCreate() functions
      - Allow WriteInfo() source file to be undefined to create new file
      - Allow WriteInfo() output file to be undefined to edit file in place
      - Added extra argument to WriteInfo() to specify output file type

Oct. 24/05 - Version 5.71

  - Added ability to read/write .XMP data files
  - Added -listf option to print list of recognized file types
  - Changed "-group#" option to "-listg#" (but still support old -group#)
  - Moved Kodak APP3 "Meta" tags from EXIF to a new Kodak "Meta" group

Oct. 23/05 - Version 5.70

  - Significant internal changes to improve speed and reduce memory useage
  - Fixed a bug introduced in version 5.63 which caused incorrect XMP GPS
    coordinates to be returned
  - Changed handling of Kodak date records
  - API Changes:
      - Added ability to access original 'Raw' values via GetValue()
      - GetValue() now returns empty array in list context if value is undefined
      - Values are now converted as they are requested, so the PrintConv option
        now applies to GetInfo() and GetValue() instead of ExtractInfo()

Oct. 19/05 - Version 5.69

  - API Changes:
      - Changed handling of floating point numbers to tolerate locales where a
        comma is used instead of a decimal point

Oct. 17/05 - Version 5.68

  - Added support for reading Sigma RAW (X3F) images
