Pillow is the friendly PIL fork. Initially just a packaging fork, now considering image code bug fixes and Python 3 support. To be friendly, we attempt to track changes against upstream tickets in PIL.
Pillow 1.7.8 is out! Read about it here:
This release includes:
To install Pillow:
$ easy_install Pillow
$ pip install Pillow
$ python setup.py install (inside the extracted zip)
$ pip install zc.buildout $ buildout init
[buildout] parts = pillow [pillow] recipe = zc.recipe.egg
(Note: easy_install & pip each handle namespace packages differently, so you should choose one or the other, and not mix the two.)
