Below is the IETF's announcement notice for the second draft of the first
extension set for TIFF-FX. This extension, TIFF-FX Extension Set 1, focuses
on introduction of the new JBIG2 encoding for B&W and colored text, see
sections E1.5, E1.6 and E1.7. JBIG2 provides 3 to 5x compression advantage
over G4 (MMR) and JBIG encodings. The extension also introduces a set of new
higher resolutions (e.g. 300x600, 400x800, 600x600, 600x1200 and 1200x1200
dpi) and associated image widths (section E1.3), provisions use more than 3
layers in MRC model of Profile M (section E1.4), and provision to signal
when more than one profile is being used within a file (section E1.2).
