Will GIMP 2.8 come in a single window mode?

Filed under
GIMP

There is an interesting message of Martin Nordholts, one of the core developers of GIMP, in the official mailing list about GIMP 2.8 being shipped in a single window mode.

GIMP 2.8 is being the new base for cool new features in the future because GEGL will then be used for the complete image processing in the GIMP core. In GIMP 2.8 the old and new code is available, but after 2.8 most of the old code will be thrown away and the core will only work with GEGL from that time on.

Years over years GIMPusers waited for this feature - now a dream has finally become true: Layer Groups for GIMP will be available in GIMP 2.8!

Embedded Linux Conference hijacked by drones

The Embedded Linux Conference + Android Builders Summit on Mar. 23-25 in San Jose is about “Drones, Things, and Automobiles,” but drones get the most love.

The program increasingly reflects new opportunities for Linux in areas such as drones, robots, automotive computers, IoT gizmos, 3D sensing, modular phones, and much more. For those of you worried that ELC North America is skimping on the basics as it explores the more colorful sides of Linux, rest your mind at ease. There are still plenty of sessions on booting, trace analysis, NAND support, PHY frameworks, power management, defragmenting, systemd, device tree, and toolchain. Geeks still rule! Read more
