Recorded: July 14, 2014Language: English

We describe recent developments in the Ginga package, a open-source astronomical image viewer and toolkit written in python and hosted on Github. The package was introduced to the scientific python community at SciPy 2013 and has received a number of enhancements since then based on user feedback. The talk includes an image mosaicing demo of a wide-field camera exposure with 116 4Kx2K CCDs.
