Google Summer of Code 2012 GIMP/GEGL projects announced
This year, there will be four GIMP/GEGL projects sponsored by Google Summer of Code:
- Porting GIMP filters to GEGL operations (Maxime Nicco, hanslo)
- Porting other GIMP features to GEGL (Ville Sokk)
- Creating a GEGL-based “node compositor” that will make GEGL development easier (Isaac Wagner)
- Implementing the Unified Transform tool (Mikael Magnusson)
So, GEGL integration advances with full power. It’s planned for GIMP 2.10 that most operations will use GEGL by default, and the following GIMP versions will make full use of the GEGL advantages, for instance 16-bit color depth operations.
