Thanks to everyone who contributed fixes to 2.3.0, especially Eric Soroos AKA "wiredfool" who is officially now "Pillow Man #2" .
Additionally, we've forked the PIL handbook and have included it with our documentation here:
http://pillow.readthedocs.org. Special thanks to Stephen Johnson AKA "irksep" for working on this.
Lastly, I'm very grateful to Christopher Gohlke for producing Windows Egg, Exe, and Wheel distributions to accompany each source release. I suspect Christopher will produce his 2.3.0 distributions any second now at which point I will upload them to PyPI via
Enjoy Pillow 2.3.0! And please report any issues you find here:
