A Quick Look at Gimp3 (2.99) ..Yeap, 3 :)

Filed under
GIMP

What’s Gimp3? Simply the port of Gimp 2.8 in GTK 3, or if you prefer the version after the 2.10 version. The look was quick indeed, because Gimp was consuming 100% CPU so I couldn’t check it at all.

I guess that this bug had to do with my compiling and it isn’t a real bug, but it isn’t really matter because all I wanted to see was the theme, which by the way was -by default- the impressive dark Adwaita!

when is coming?

Gimp roadmap doesn’t give any dates and I asked Gimp developer Michael Natterer (aka mitch). Mitch told us: Gimp on GTK3 won’t come any time soon, but oh well we can still try it from gtk-3 branch.

On the boundaries of GPL enforcement

Last October, the Software Freedom Conservancy (SFC) and Free Software Foundation (FSF) jointly published "The Principles of Community-Oriented GPL Enforcement". That document described what those organizations believe the goal of enforcement efforts should be and how those efforts should be carried out. Several other organizations endorsed the principles, including the netfilter project earlier this month. It was, perhaps, a bit puzzling that the project would make that endorsement at that time, but a July 19 SFC blog post sheds some light on the matter. There have been rumblings for some time about a kernel developer doing enforcement in Germany that might not be particularly "community-oriented", but public information was scarce. Based on the blog post by Bradley Kuhn and Karen Sandler, though, it would seem that Patrick McHardy, who worked on netfilter, is the kernel developer in question. McHardy has also recently been suspended from the netfilter core team pending his reply to "severe allegations" with regard to "the style of his license enforcement activities". Read more
