Plans for GIMP# 0.12

January 20, 2007 at 7:21 pm | Posted in GIMP | 3 Comments

Up until GIMP# 0.11 we have been working hard to add new functionality. We have added quite a few plug-ins partly because we saw a benefit for end-users and partly because these plug-ins are a good testcase for our gimp-sharp.dll, the dll that wraps the GIMP API. My plans for the release 0.12 are a bit different:

  • Quality and completeness. I will go through the GIMP API (including 2.4) and make sure it’s fully covered by GIMP#, including a testcase written in NUnit.
  • Consolidation: clean-up current code, especially the plug-ins that were often a straightforward port from an original written in C or C++. Extract reusable code and move it to the GIMP# library.
  • We have a few bugs and annoyances in several plug-ins. These will be reduced as far as possible to make the next release a very polished one.
  • No new plug-ins.
  • Ok, the previous bullet was a lie. GIMP# 0.12 will come with IronPython support and includes a sample plug-in.

The (soft) deadline for this release is end of March.

  1. will we see gimp-sharp-win .11 before then or does it usually run a release behind source?

    Thanks for the hard work.

  2. GIMP# for win32 usually runs one or two weeks behind the source code release. Main reason is that I don’t create the win32 release myself.

  3. Ahhh, Thanks for the info.
