gimp 2.8

My new Fedora 17 installation says it has gimp 2.8.

But the changes I've seen described for gimp 2.8 are not apparent.

The interface seems unchanged with multiple windows.

Also, supposedly there is an Image>Precision Menu item which allows me to se the precision. I don't have that.

On the other hand, when I load a 16 bit image, I don't get a notice about conversion to 8 bits per channel, and a calculation suggests that each pixel takes up six bytes.

What is going on? When can I exect additional changes?

It does seem that you can set a single window interface.

Also, supposedly there is an Image>Precision Menu item which allows me to set the precision. I don't have that.

Seems you found the single window mode by now :)

You have been misinformed. Image>Precision has been introduced shortly after the 2.8 release and for now only is available in the development version resp. GIT. While it works surprisingly well it is not yet good enough to be released onto unsuspecting users... :)

On the other hand, when I load a 16 bit image, I don't get a notice about conversion to 8 bits per channel, and a calculation suggests that each pixel takes up six bytes.

You lose the precision anyway and it depends on the loader plugin if this dialog is shown or not. Anyway, 6 bytes per pixels seems a tad on the low side, since Gimp usually needs more (3 or 4 bytes image data, 4 bytes projection, one byte selection mask).

I hope this helps.

Bye, Simon

Of course you don't. It's not in 2.8 and wasn't even supposed to be.

gimp-user-list vs gimpforums?

Are both of these going to remain active?

Is gimpforums meant to replace the gimp-user-list?

The mailing list is run by the GIMP developers, all of the forums out there are run by third parties.

So the mailing list(s) are the official communications channel; the objectives of all the forums out there would have to be explained by their maintainers.

HTH,
Michael
