Somebody sent me this funky screenshot of his Windows XP desktop.

Doesn’t sound much exciting? Well I almost had to wet my pants when I saw some of the GIMP actions you can bind to a controller such as a mousewheel (with optional modifier keys):
- brush opacity
- current brush
- brush attributes such as size, sharpness and rotation
- layer opacity and mode, position in stack and on canvas
- grow/shrink selections
- active font
- FG/BG color’s hue, saturation and value
For a detailed list, look at menus/image-menu.xml.in.
It was great fun and we managed to get quite some stuff done. We now have nice RGBA tool cursors (if your gtk was compiled against xcursor headers, which our xd-unstable gtk2 apparently hasn’t). Also stay tuned for faster gradients.
Also in HEAD, Philip Lafleur started implementing live previews for the transform tools. It’s pretty snappy as is, with some hard edges of course. Great to see this stuff happening though.
While driving the car into our yard, Iva noticed a mushroom next to the hedge. There turned out to be quite a lot of them. No need to to go to the woods anymore .
Looks like the generic mimetype icons (gnome-mimetype-video, gnome-mimetype-text, etc.) in Gorilla don’t override the specific ones in hicolor. Already looking forward to all the symlinking in automake.
Another smart filenaming (yes it was ME!):
I would like to give Gorilla another facelift. Fix the broken filenames, create the missing panel icons and move the old gtk stock into the proper hierarchy. However the prospect of moving files around in CVS instead of drawing really makes me want to wait for the filenaming spec. Totally not feeling like doing it one more time.
I wish we were using subversion already :/
