A new 2.9.8 release of @GIMP is now available (windows and macOS builds to follow)!
Have a look at some of the great new features (on-canvas gradient editing, clip warning, wayland support, paste in place, and more)!
@patdavid @GIMP I haven't been paying attention for a while, so forgive my ignorance, but I wanted to ask: is there a plan in place for consolidating UI? The proliferation of all sorts of plugins (like the excellent G'MIC) with their own UI universes inside GIMP really doesn't help with discovery of various features… Well, I think you guys know about it much better than me :-)
One of the problems with being extremely extensible is possibly having inconsistent UI's across more advanced plugins, like G'MIC.
Part of the problem is that G'MIC is already a pretty full-featured framework for image processing in itself, and usually has different UI requirements than base GIMP might...
The problems start when there's a non-trivial plugin (again, G'MIC comes to mind). Normally scripts will inherit windowing and controls from GTK and look native to GIMP.
It doesn't help that G'MIC is QT based these days, either. :)
