GDynText

I'm interested to know what is the status of GDynText. Is it not worked on anymore? I find it a good start, but there are lots of further implementations needed. And unfortunately, I don't know how to program. :)

What about GIMP 1.3 - 1.4? Is there another tool planned for those?

I don't know what the current status is with regards to support (although I could not find it in the CVS version of the Gimp on my machine). However, what extra features would you like to see implemented?

If you really want to see improvements in this tool (and nobody posts here to say it's really dead), file some "wishlist" priority bugs at bugzilla.gnome.org against the Gimp component so that they don't get lost.

The thing is, the requests would look different depending on whether it's the default text tool or GDynText that is favoured. The latter has more features than the default tool, but that also means that is has more flaws.
I really don't know how to shape the bugs before I know which is the "main" text tool.

I don't think this is true. You can easily file a bug report saying that GDynText doesn't work currently (giving whatever diagnostics you can) and then file feature requests for whatever extra features you would like.

That way, whether GDynText continues to work or is replaced by something or is dropped awaiting somebody to write a new one, the features that you would like are still being tracked.

Feature requests do not have to be specific to a particular tool, although they can refer to an existing or pre-existing tool to give a reference about what you would like to see.
