When you read this, the Python Imaging Library, relase 0.1b1 (beta 1,
that is) should be available from www.python.org.


or:	ftp://ftp.python.org/pub/www.python.org/sigs/image-sig

This beta has a few rough edges, including broken PostScript printer
support and an ugly (but working) palette hack, but the rest seems
quite stable.  And there's lots of new stuff in it.

Note that the IJG JPEG library is the standard distribution of version
6 (converted from a zip file, though).  If you already have it, you
don't need to download this file.  If you prefer version 6a, you may
have to hack around a little in the Jpeg codec interfaces.

Anyway, this code has been compiled on Digital Unix, Solaris 5 and
Linux without any problems whatsoever.  With a little luck, it will
run on your platform as well.

Updated documentation will arrive on the server within a few days.  In
the meanwhile, you may be able to use the draft version.
