5.2.0

API Changes

Deprecations

These version constants have been deprecated. VERSION will be removed in Pillow 6.0.0, and PILLOW_VERSION will be removed after that.

  • PIL.VERSION (old PIL version 1.1.7)
  • PIL.PILLOW_VERSION
  • PIL.Image.VERSION
  • PIL.Image.PILLOW_VERSION

Use PIL.__version__ instead.

API Additions

Image.rotate

A new named parameter, fillcolor, has been added to Image.rotate. This color specifies the background color to use in the area outside the rotated image. This parameter takes the same color specifications as used in Image.new.

Other Changes

Support added for Python 3.7

Pillow 5.2 supports Python 3.7.
