The first PIL 1.1.6 is now available from effbot.org:


(look for Imaging-1.1.6a1.tar.gz)

Notable additions:

+ Added pixel access object.  The "load" method now returns
  an access object that can be used to directly get and set pixel
  values, using ordinary 2D array notation:

    pixel = im.load()
    v = pixel[x, y]
    pixel[x, y] = v

  If you're accessing more than a few pixels, this is a lot faster
  than using getpixel/putpixel.

+ Added buffer interface support to the Path constructor.  If
  a buffer is provided, it is assumed to contain a flat array of
  float coordinates (e.g. array.array('f', seq)).

+ Added new ImageMath module:


and a bunch of bug fixes and minor tweaks.  For a more complete
list, see:
