dcmtk (3.5.4-1) unstable; urgency=low

  Version 3.5.4 of the OFFIS DCMTK (DICOM ToolKit) software includes 
  the following main changes over the previous version (Version 3.5.3):

    * The former "imagectn" tool has been renamed to "dcmqrscp" (Q/R
      SCP) and has been refactored into a simple class structure that
      offers a clean API for exchanging the index file
      back-end. Minimal support for compressed transfer syntaxes has
      been added. The tool can now also be started by root and change
      privileges to a different user and group specified in the config
      file.

    * New tool pdf2dcm allows to convert PDF files to DICOM
      Encapsulated PDF Storage SOP instances.

    * New lossless JPEG encoder that guarantees "true lossless"
      compression in contrast to the old implementation which could
      cause rounding errors in certain cases.

    * StoreSCP now supports multi-process mode both on Posix and Win32
      platforms where a separate client process is forked for each
      incoming association. On Posix platforms, the tool can also be
      started from inetd.

    * New schema for include files. All includes files are now
      included as #include "dcmtk/module/file.h", e.g. #include
      "dcmtk/dcmdata/dctk.h". This allows the DCMTK header files to be
      installed in a public directory such as /usr/local/include and
      eliminates the risk of name clashes.

    * DcmFileFormat::loadFile can now be prevented from attempting to
      load non-part 10 files as DICOM datasets. Many tools support a
      corresponding command line option "--read-file-only".

    * Many tools support a new command line option that ignores the
      transfer syntax specified in the meta header and tries to detect
      the transfer syntax automatically from the dataset.

    * Added support for X-Ray Radiation Dose SR and Procedure Log SR
      documents in dcmsr module.

    * TLS module now supports AES ciphersuites if compiled with
      OpenSSL 0.9.7 or newer. All TLS-enabled tools now support the
      "AES TLS Secure Transport Connection Profile".

    * Added command line options for separate DIMSE and ACSE timeouts
      to many tools

    * The dcmdata module now supports an automatic re-conversion of
      defined length UN elements read in an explicit VR transfer
      syntax, if the real VR is defined in the data dictionary. A
      corresponding command line option "--convert-un" is available in
      dcmdump and dcmconv.

    * Compilation with OpenSSL 0.9.8, which introduces an incompatible
      API change, is now supported.

    * Network tools support transmission and receipt of JPEG 2000
      transfer syntaxes.

    * DICOMDIR tools and classes now support Encapsulated Document,
      Real World Value Mapping, Hanging Protocol and Color
      Presentation State objects.

    * The toolkit can now read DICOM files in which the meta header
      group length attribute (0002,0000) is absent, based on a
      heuristic that checks for group 0002 attribute tags.

    * Added option --read-dataset to dcmdjpeg that allows to
      decompress JPEG compressed DICOM objects that have been stored
      as dataset without meta-header.

    * Added support for reading UN elements with undefined length
      according to CP 246. A flag allows to revert to the prior
      behaviour in which UN elements with undefined length were parsed
      like a normal explicit VR SQ element.

    * Added support for new Media Storage Application Profiles
      according to DICOM PS 3.12-2004. Removed support for
      non-standard conformant "No profile".

    * The DICOM data dictionary has been re-worked based on the latest
      supplements and correction proposals, as usual.

    * Many bug fixes and minor improvements as usual - see the
      /usr/share/doc/dcmtk/changelog.gz file for more details.
