Version 3.28 of CFITSIO

Release Notes: In cases where an image tile cannot be quantized, the floating-point pixel values will be losslessly compressed with gzip before writing them to the tile-compressed file. Significant internal changes have been made to the structure of the tile compression and uncompression routines to make them more modular and easier to maintain. The ffiter function has been modified to properly clean up allocated memory if an error occurs.

    Release Notes: This release restores support for tile compression of 1-byte integer images. It modifies the command line parsing routine to perform more rigorous checks to determine if the token can be interpreted as a number or not. It adds support for reading and writing large FITS files (> 2.1 GB) when building CFITSIO using Microsoft Visual C++ on Windows platforms. There are numerous bugfixes.
