@patdavid @GIMP exciting! what are those blickers, i wonder
@hirojin "blickers"? Sorry, I don't know what that is...
@patdavid ha blockerstyping (swyping?) is hard at that hour
Is 2.10 eventually going to be released as an stable version or as development?
@kvltist It'll be a stable version! :D
@patdavid Nice, hope we get it soon on Manjaro
Looks amazing! I can't wait for the official release! 💖
I have not kept up with GIMP, is the font tool improved? Is text editable via the text tool?
@GIMP @electrotamitha text has always been editable with the text tool. Unless you mean text in another file format (psd)?
@patdavid I should try again, it's been some time since I used GIMP. But I seem to recall after I would input text and place it, if I tried to click the text and alter it, a new element would be created.
@electrotamitha @patdavid that still happens on 2.8. It's really a user error caused by not clicking directly on the previous text's layer. It needs to be improved.
