Hi ironpython,

Here's your Daily Digest of new issues for project "IronPython".

In today's digest:ISSUES

1. [New comment] I can't import PIL module
2. [New issue] Console color choice is bad for bright consoles



1. [New comment] I can't import PIL module
User jdhardy has commented on the issue:

"Unfortunately, PIL uses a C extension module, which isn't supported for IronPython."-----------------

2. [New issue] Console color choice is bad for bright consoles
User sblom has proposed the issue:

"May not be an IronPython-owned issue, but I can't find an upstream project to instead pursue this against.

My default console background color is bright white, with black foreground text.

When Microsoft.Scripting.Hosting.Shell.BasicConsole tries to pick a prompt color , it looks to see if my background color is exactly ConsoleColor.Gray. When it sees that it's not, it sets the foreground text to ConsoleColor.Gray.

Light gray on white is _very_ hard to read.

A slightly more sane color choice, perhaps even using my default foreground text color for _promptColor. (Sadly, I haven't figured out how to read that color correctly on a non-Windows console.)

sys.version = '2.7.1 (IronPython 2.7.1 ( on .NET 4.0.30319.1)'"
