software OS4   software OS4 : Gimp 2.6.11 for AmiCygnix released
   posted by CygnusEd on 1-Apr-2013 22:53:17 (2352 reads)
A new version of Gimp for AmiCygnix is now available on OS4-depot.

Gimp is a freely distributed program for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image authoring.

This is new in this release:
  • New version 2.6.11 with many improvements.

  • The internal loaders were enhanced and two new formats were added.

  • Some of the Script-Fu scripts are now available as python plug-ins.

  • Compiled with GTK+ 2.24.

  • New version 2.7.2 of the Python package for Gimp python plug-ins.

  • Keyboard layouts that do not conform to ISO-8859-1 standard (eg Polish or Greek keyboards) are now better supported.

  • Dead keys are also supported now. For this the program uses the definitions in the keymap files in "KEYMAPS:".

  • Because of the high amount of data, most of the plug-ins are published in separate packages. Two of them do contain loader and saver plugins. The first one is optional only, because the included picture formats can also be loaded through internal plug-ins. The internal plug-ins are faster.

    Please read the documentation (README) for more informations!

    Installed it for the first time on the SE and it works great.

    I suppose it will fly on an X1000, ok, maybe that would be
    my second reason to buy an newer NG Amiga.

    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    I installed 2.6.11 over the previous install meaning that the filters and loaders remained as they were. That went OK. Then I loaded over them the two new filter packs and the two new loader packs. When I started up Gimp the splash window about initializing plugins came up and nothing. I did wait a long time but nothing was going on.

    Next I operated the uninstall script so everything was removed. I reinstalled Gimp but no plugins. Gimp 2.6 stopped at the same point.

    In case it needed the filters and loaders I then put in the new archives. There was no improvement.

    I'll have to try this version. Last time I tried GIMP was version 2.6.8 on Linux.
