Version 0.5

Image layers (#22)

Wand 0.5 will be able to deal with layers of an image.

Its branch name will be layer.

Very future versions

Wand 0.5 will move to CFFI from ctypes.
PIL compatibility layer

PIL has very long history and the most of Python projects still depend on it. We will work on PIL compatibility layer using Wand. It will provide two ways to emulate PIL:

  • Module-level compatibility which can be used by changing import:

        from wand.pilcompat import Image
    except ImportError:
        from PIL import Image
  • Global monkeypatcher which changes sys.modules:

    from wand.pilcompat.monkey import patch; patch()
    import PIL.Image  # it imports wand.pilcompat.Image module
CLI (covert command) to Wand compiler (#100)

Primary interface of ImageMagick is convert command. It provides a small parameter language, and many answers on the Web contain code using this. The problem is that you can’t simply copy-and-paste these code to utilize Wand.

This feature is to make these CLI codes possible to be used with Wand.

Supporting __array_interface__() for NumPy (#65)

It makes numpy.asarray() able to take Image object to deal with its pixels as matrix.

Its branch name will be numpy.
