Pillow Runs Itself📌

As of Pillow 2.6.0, the Pillow project runs itself. Of course when I say “runs itself” I mean “runs without me”, which is what every open source project lead hopes for. For the first time ever, I was able to:

  • Turn off GitHub Watching until two weeks before the release.

  • Not run setup.py upload or twine upload myself.

  • Watch in awe as the Pillow team 1 did all the work.

Kudos to them for making my life easier and for continuing to provide the Python community with a featureful, modern & secure Python Imaging Library.

Additional thanks to Christoph Gohlke for Windows Eggs, Exes, Wheels, Matthew Brett for OS X Wheels and Steve Johnson for Sphinx Documentation.

Lastly thanks to all the contributors from all over the world who continue to develop and improve Pillow. I used to keep a list, but now there are too many to keep track of.
