Ok, this thing has been sitting in the repo for way too long; let's
get it out there before I come up with more things to tweak & tune.

PIL 1.1.7 release candidate for Python 2.X is now available.  This
release contains tons of bug fixes, and numerous new features,
including color management support (based on Kevin Cazabon's pyCMS
package), support for reading interlaced PNG files (from Conrado Porto
Lopes Gouvêa) and improved PNG compression (from Alexey Borzenkov),
improved support for 64-bit platforms, and lots of other tweaks and
fixes.  For more details, see:


To get your hands on this release candidate, grab a source archive from:


or Windows binaries for Python 2.5 and 2.6 from:


(source archives will appear on effbot.org/downloads as well, later this week).

This release has been built and tested on a variety of platforms, but
I'm still interested in feedback from Mac OS X and non-Linux Unix
flavours.  Hopefully, this will be the only release candidate, and
will be promoted (with a few trivial fixes that's already sitting in
the repository) to final status next week.
