GIMPshop looking for coders and input
« on: September 12, 2011, 08:21:56 AM »
from email / newsletter

We are also assembling, for the first time, a group of coders
willing to contribute to the first upgrade of Gimpshop in years.
 
This group will be the base for an ongoing team that will
evaluate and monitor further submissions for Gimpshop upgrades.
 
If you feel like you might want to be part of that group please
contact us.
http://www.gimpshop.com/

It would certainly be nice to see it being brought uptodate....

Why somebody should help ?

GimpShop fork attracted interest only because offered a single window interface...
but now also Gimp has  a much better implementation of  single windows mode as option (the old mode is still available you may switch with a click)

you don't even have to wait the official release of gimp 2.8 to test it, there are Windows installers available (32 or 64 bit ) of gimp -2.7.4 (beta) here www.partha.com

Gimpshop was a very poor hack , so buggy that was almost impossible to use, and based on a obsolete version of gimp

i really cannot see any reason to resurrect that dead fork , what could offer is already integrated in the new GIMP :down:

thanks for that info PhotoComiX.
I havent used Gimp for a couple of years - it was a nightmare then when trying to altTab, each toolbar being a different process.

Downloaded the beta from your link :up:
