Technical Details:
Updated freeimage Linux Distribution Packages fix security vulnerability: FreeImage is vulnerable to an integer overflow in PluginPCX.cpp, making the PCX loader vulnerable to malicious images with a bad window specification (CVE-2015-0852).

Most of those dependencies were unbundled to use the up-to-date system libraries, while the bundled libtiff was updated to a more recent version.
