Goat Invasion in GIMP

Tuesday, April 17th, 2012

Once upon a time, like 5 weeks ago, there used to be the longstanding plan to, at some point in the future, port GIMP to GEGL. We have done a lot of refactoring in GIMP over the last ten years, but its innermost pixel manipulating core was still basically unchanged since GIMP 1.2 days. We […]

GIMP on GTK+ 3.0

Sunday, October 24th, 2010

At the GTK+ Hackfest in A Coruna I managed to get GIMP almost completely (minus one dialog and most plug-ins) running on GTK+ 3.0. This turned out to be a great tool for finding bugs in the new GTK+. In fact, I found quite a few of them while still completing the port. Some bugs […]

OMG it’s alive!

I heared rumors that my blog is dead. However the report of its death has been greatly exaggerated.

Using the Mac OS X Menubar

Thursday, August 30th, 2007

Finally, after quite some debugging (of the very same bug for months), I committed preliminary support for the global Mac OS X menubar to GIMP trunk. It’s the result of a project I’ve been involved with at Imendio. Check the project page. For seeing the coolness without compiling yourself, check the video.

PDB and Plug-In Refactoring

A status report from the half-done PDB and Plug-In chopping orgy.

Night Skiing

Tuesday, February 7th, 2006

While spending some time in the south of Germany, I took the opportunity to do some Night Skiing. The location is really nice. As an extra goodie, there is a small wooden cabin at the top of the lift, where they serve some small dishes and drinks. We stayed there until the lights were turned […]

An early Glance at GIMP on OS X

Thursday, October 6th, 2005

I’m very excited today 🙂 My co-worker Anders Carlsson has spent the last two months with starting a port of GTK+ to the Mac OS X Cocoa framework, so GTK+ applications will eventually run natively (without needing X11) on that platform. The port is still in its early stages and incomplete, but after these few […]

I ran across before, but really discovered it last night. I couldn’t stop laughing for hours, this site is so full of crack, it’s unbeleivable. Read for example the truth about Gnome and KDE, learn what hides behind this alphabet thing and wonder why you never thought about these truths before. (And no, they […]

Everybody loves Eric Raymond

So, M$ tried to hire ESR, funny… I wonder if they shouldn’t just insist, despite his even more funny answer.

3… 2… 1… 10!

Tuesday, August 30th, 2005

It could easily have been forgotten, but Federico remembered it. GIMP is going to be 10 years old on November 21st 🙂 That cries for a birthday party, doesn’t it?

Even More Paper Prototyping

Saturday, August 27th, 2005

It seems to become popular: Sven and Antenne already mentioned it in their blogs. Now Akkana Peck has created a small script that allows to do “Paperless Menu Prototyping” using GIMP layers. Just enter a newline-separated list of words and the script will create an image featuring each word on a layer that can be […]
