A PIL 1.1.5 alpha 2 tarball is now available from effbot.org:


(look for Imaging-1.1.5a2.tar.gz)

Changes since 1.1.5 alpha 1:

+ The "paste" method now supports the alternative "paste(im, mask)"
  syntax (in this case, the box defaults to im's bounding box).

+ The "ImageFile.Parser" class now works also for PNG files with
  more than one IDAT block.

+ Added DPI read/write to the TIFF codec, and fixed writing of
  rational values.  The decoder sets the info["dpi"] attribute
  for TIFF files with appropriate resolution settings.  The
  encoder uses the "dpi" option:

+ Disable interlacing for small (or narrow) GIF images, to
  work around what appears to be a hard-to-find bug in PIL's
  GIF encoder.

+ Fixed writing of mode "P" PDF images.  Made mode "1" PDF
  images smaller.

+ Made the XBM reader a bit more robust; the file may now start
  with a few whitespace characters.

+ Added support for enhanced metafiles to the WMF driver.  The
  separate PILWMF kit lets you render both placeable WMF files
  and EMF files as raster images.  See
