mitch.

The +GIMP developer and very patient dude.
Quite a few folks should buy this guy a beer and have never seen his face...

Portrait taken during +Libre Graphics Meeting 2016 in London. I think I had just asked him if we'd see GIMP 3.0 released this year... :)

Developed in +RawTherapee, then into GIMP for some minor processing (how meta).

Thanks to recent work by +Daniel Sabo and +Michael Natterer, the new MyPaint Brush tool is now fast enough to use, and the selection of brushes works like for regular brushes, with grid previews and tagging. Additionally, autogeneration of tags from directory names is supported. The new brush tool will be available in development 2.9.4 version and in the stable 2.10 release.

We are excited to announce GIMP 2.9.2, the first development release of GIMP in the 2.9.x series, featuring GEGL-based image processing under the hood, with high bit depth support and more great new features. Once official Windows and OS X builds are ready, we shall announce them separately.

Thanks to the help from the +GIMP folks, I've been able to start the (big) work on the G'MIC plug-in to make it use the high-bits depth buffers (16bits and 32bits-float) provided by GEGL in GIMP 2.9.
If everything goes well, you should be then able to run all G'MIC effects with full precision soon, directly from the GIMP plug-in (e.g. on 16bits and 32bits-float/channel images). That was of course already possible from the command line interface, but not from the current plug-in.

This is still work in progress anyway. Who knows what may happen ?

Thanks mitch and pippin for taking time to teach me some GEGL basics :)

Appeal Type: Rejected New Submission
Portal Name: Kreuzweg Pfärrich Station 4
Portal Location: https://www.ingress.com/intel?ll=47.700339,9.783069&z=18

The portal is number 4 in a series of seven (6 stations, and the final
station a church). Stations 1, 2, 3, 5 and 6 and the church were accepted, station 4 was rejected with the resaon "The candidate is on our PLEASE DON'T SUBMIT list", but it's right next to a public road that's also used by pedestrians. Please accept the portal so the series of stations 1 to 6 makes sense. There is no difference to the portals that were accepted.

Chaos Computer Club discovered a videotape from 1999. Olof S. Kylander did a talk about GIMP features, then at around 45:40 you can see GIMP developers at the time — Sven Neumann, +Michael Natterer, +Simon Budig — joining the stage to answer questions. They were all so young! :)

2014 was a busy year for the project. Here are some of the highlights:

— Redesigned Blend tool, now you can tweak end points before applying the gradient fill;
— Improved Foreground Selection tool that handles fine details like hair;
— Finer control over painting dynamics;
— Up to 64bit per color channel processing;
— Improved file formats support, including 32bit TIFF loading/saving.

We cooked up a detailed report for you. It also specifically covers the question of v2.10 release date :)

Please help us defend our trademark from Groupon and support GNOME!  

"GNOME" the trademark has been a familiar name for the past 17 years in the Free and Open Source Software community. The GNOME project has been a staple desktop for GNU/Linux and BSD desktops. It was the default desktop for Sun Microsystems workstation class machines, continues to be the default desktop for the Red Hat Enterprise Linux and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server distributions, and it is the default desktop of Fedora and Debian. SUSE Linux Enterprise Point of Service solution for the retail industry is based on GNOME. GNOME technology can be found in TVs, tablets, phones, consumer devices, and in common software everywhere.

Recently Groupon announced a product with the same product name as GNOME. Groupon’s product is a tablet based point of sale “operating system for merchants to run their entire operation." The GNOME community was shocked that Groupon would use our mark for a product so closely related to the GNOME desktop and technology. It was almost inconceivable to us that Groupon, with over $2.5 billion in annual revenue, a full legal team and a huge engineering staff would not have heard of the GNOME project, found our trademark registration using a casual search, or even found our website, but we nevertheless got in touch with them and asked them to pick another name. Not only did Groupon refuse, but it has now filed even more trademark applications (the full list of applications they filed is available on our groupon page linked). To use the GNOME name for a proprietary software product that is antithetical to the fundamental ideas of the GNOME community, the free software community and the GNU project is outrageous. Please help us fight this huge company as they try to trade on our goodwill and hard earned reputation.

We want to show that our brand matters and that you care. Of the 28 trademark applications Groupon filed, we have to file formal proceedings to oppose 10 of them by December 3, 2014. Help us raise the funds to fight back and most of all call public attention to this terrible behavior by Groupon. Help us make sure that when people hear about GNOME software they learn about freedom and not proprietary software. Our counsel has advised us that we will need $80,000 to oppose the registration of the first set of 10 applications. If we are able to defend the mark without spending this amount, we will use the remaining funds to bolster and improve GNOME. Please help us raise the money to protect GNOME's trademark and strengthen Free Software!
