[PYTHON IMAGE-SIG] PIL 0.3a1 now available
Mon, 2 Jun 1997 19:28:59 +0200
In the great PIL tradition of only releasing alphas and betas, I've
decided to skip 0.2 final and go directly on to 0.3. The reason is
simple: I've added way too many features during the 0.2 beta phase
(cannot really complain about that, can you?). Anyway, to make up for
this, I plan to make a quick test cycle for 0.3. There will probably
be only one beta (some cool user-provided patches, a few other fixes,
a handbook), in mid-June, followed by a 0.3final towards the end of
The alpha release can be found here:
A prebuilt Windows binary will be available later this week.
The Python Imaging Library 0.3a1
This is an alpha release of the new Python Imaging Library (PIL).
News highlights in 0.3a1 (as compared to 0.2b4):
+ Support floating point images, including new decoders to deal with
virtually any kind of input data.
+ The Tk interface now supports transparent images.
*** NOTE: the Tk interface has been changed; you need to rebuild
*** your Tkinter properly handle the new interface.
+ Added McIdas read support.
+ Added PIXAR raster read support.
+ Added FlashPix (FPX) read support.
+ Added Microsoft Image Composer (MIC) read support.
+ Fixed the FLI/FLC reader to properly read FLC files.
+ Fixed the PDF writer. It now properly writes "L" and "RGB"
+ Fixed various minor problems with 0.2b4

document included in the distribution.
