Oh. That sucks. ):

How was L while you had it? I'm kind of sick of stock 4.4.3 (do a -1 on the versions I listed above; the wifi problem was from 4.4.2 to 4.4.3), especially after I found out yesterday that contacts don't work... at all. Like, none of my contacts show up, even my self contact.

It's mysteriously broken, so I guess I need to brute force it by wiping data at the least and possibly even install another ROM...

There's a bug where the scripts don't get installed on a 64-bit system. Instead of <prefix>/lib64/gimp/plug-ins/* they're installed in <prefix>/lib/gimp/plug-ins/

I filed it on github @

Quick and dirty solution: move the Python scripts from one dir to another and restart Gimp (if it was running).

Wow. Wow. Wow
We are submitting a request to participate at Google Summer of Code 2013 very soon and encourage students to contact us early, so that we could get to know each other better.

Marek Dvoroznak did so and suggested to implement a new deformation tool. He already did part of the work (not for GIMP yet), so there's a video that compares Cage Transform tool with his method.

While at this point we cannot say if Marek will be working with us (at the very least, not until we are approved as a mentoring organization, and that's going to take weeks), this is a great illustration of qualities we are looking for in potential students: early contact (green flag for good communication skills), prior programming experience, understanding what's good for users.
