I'm currently re-reading all of your postings and reviews related to GIL
and will post the official announcement by the middle of this month.

In the mean time, I am pleased to announce that the GIL graphics library,
developed by Lubomir Bourdev and others at Adobe, has been accepted
as a boost library. Thanks to those who submitted reviews; your opinions
matter and will assist the GIL developers to improve the library even

Ideally, a Boost review should include comments from a
wide variety of developers, including those with deep domain expertise.
We got that in this review, which is very encouraging.

A number of issues were brought up in the review, many of which were
very technical in nature, requring a deep knowledge of color theory,
not something many of us have. Many other issues related to the design
of the library and the unusual documentation style were discussed. I will
try to summarize these issues in my "review manager" report which will
follow in a couple of weeks. Thanks again to all involved.
