<b>Pycoder's Weekly -- Your weekly dose of all things Python</b>
A free weekly newsletter, on Fridays, for those interested in python development and various topics around python. Check out http://pycoders.com
This week's email talks about the recently released <b>requests v2.0</b>.
(Hopefully @OMZ will give us access to that in Pythonista vNext).
If you are manipulating webpages in Pythonista without using <b>requests and beautifulsoup</b>, do yourself a favor and check them out at http://omz-software.com/pythonista/docs/ios
This week's installment discusses, among other things, the release of Pillow v2.2.1. http://blog.aclark.net/2013/10/03/pillow-221-released
<b>Pillow is the plug compatible replacement for PIL</b> which is part of Pythonista. There have been <b>no PIL updates for 4 years</b> so Pillow was created as a "friendly" fork to deliver similar or improved functionality, documentation, and bug fixes and supports both Python 2 and 3.
Hopefully a future Pythonista will swap out PIL in favor of Pillow.
