CMake: correctly set default value of 'lzma' option when liblzma is detected (issue #482)
CMake: Moved linking of CMath::CMath into CMath_LIBRARY check.
Fix CMake build to be compatible with FetchContent.
cmake: Correct duplicate definition of _CRT_SECURE_NO_WARNINGS (issue #443)

TIFFReadFromUserBuffer(): fix clearing of TIFF_CODERSETUP flag that could cause issues with reading JPEG compressed files
_TIFFCheckFieldIsValidForCodec(): return FALSE when passed a codec-specific tag and the codec is not configured (issue #433, issue #486, CVE-2022-34526)
Add basic 16 bit cielab support.
