On behalf of the libLAS team, thanks to all who provided bug reports and patches!

Before delivering next major release of libLAS, there is one big issue that must be fixed. It is problem with large files under Windows 32-bit operating system - ticket #147. Volunteers are welcome to take care of it :-)

I would also like to see completed build configuration based on CMake - ticket #52. It is already usable on Unix (GCC) and Windows (Visual C++), so testers are welcome to give it a try and give us feedback.
