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

    http://effbot.org/downloads/#Imaging (source)
    http://effbot.org/downloads/#PIL (windows binaries)

Changes from 1.1.5 include:

- new ImageQt module provides image support for PyQt4
- numerous improvements to the TrueType rendering, including proper
  (and crash-free) handling of fonts with negative bearings, and support
  for kerning.
- new ImageMath module for applying arbitrary expressions to images
- faster pixel access via separate "access" objects

As usual, PIL 1.1.6 supports all Python versions from 1.5.2 and onwards,
including the upcoming 2.5 beta.
