Abstract: Ginga is a toolkit for building astronomical image viewers. The package is available under a BSD license at and has undergone continuous development since its introduction at ADASS 2012. The package may may be of interest to software developers who are looking for a solution for integrating FITS or numpy-based data visualization into their python programs and end users interested in FITS viewers (via the example reference viewer). We present the updates and enhanced capabilities of the package, including: support for additional GUI toolkits, WCS-based image mosaicing, image overlays, customizable user interface bindings, support for python3 and more.
