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