Yes that seems to help. Now extract displays the following for a cr2 file:
creation date - 2009:01:23 13:14:20
source - Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XSi
size - 2256x1504
mimetype - image/tiff
I still need to test with Mediatomb, but I assume libextractor will report
the creation date field with EXTRACTOR_CREATION_DATE, so I am pretty sure my
problem is solved.
Is this a bug that should be permanently fixed, or will changing the code
break something for "real" tiff files? In other words, was there some good
reason for the use of EXTRACTOR_SOFTWARE in the original code?
Thanks for the help!

Anyway, in the meantime, could you try if the following patch fixes your
