This is my second release of Gimp 2.6.11 for AmiCygnix.

GIMP is an acronym for GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is a freely distribu-
ted program for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image

It has many capabilities. It can be used as a simple paint program, an expert
quality photo retouching program, an image format converter, etc.

GIMP is expandable and extensible. It is designed to be augmented with plug-ins
and extensions to do just about anything.

New in this release

  * The promised keyboard support did not work. Fixed.

  * The menu shortcuts did not work. Also fixed.

  * Seven new to python plug-ins converted Script-Fu scripts:
    - carve-it.py
    - chrome-it.py
    - coffee.py
    - distress-selection.py
    - fuzzyborder.py
    - old-photo.py
    - slide.py

  * The documentation was revised. Several python plug-ins do need other
    plug-ins, which are included in the optional plug-in packages. This is now
    explicitly listed.

  * A new splash picture in Amiga style. Thanks to Thomas Blatt!

New in the first release

  * New version 2.6.11 with many improvements, for example the new GEGL graphics

  * The internal loaders were enhanced and two new formats were added. While
    saving in JPEG, PNG or TIFF format you can choose now the compression rate.

  * Some of the Script-Fu scripts are now available as python plug-ins.
    (see below)

  * Compiled with GTK+ 2.24.

  * New version 2.7.2 of the Python package for Gimp python plug-ins.

  * Keyboard layouts that do not conform to ISO-8859-1 standard (eg Polish or
    Greek keyboards) are now better supported.

    This includes support for dead keys. For a complete support of dead keys,
    the installation of AmiCygnix 1.3 (or better) is mandatory!

    (did not work)

Internal loaders and savers

  This version of Gimp contains several internal loader and saver formats.
  Because of this, you can load and save foreign picture formats, even if the
  external loader plug-ins are missing.

  The original loader plug-ins will be available in a separate package, because
  the amount of data is too high. At the moment all programs are linked stati-
  cally on AmiCygnix. Many plug-ins do have a filesize of 14 - 15 MB because of

  Internal loaders:

    - XCF
    - BMP
    - GIF
    - ICNS
    - ICO (Windows-Icon)
    - IFF-ILBM
    - JPEG
    - PCX
    - PNG
    - PNM
    - QTIF
    - RAS
    - TGA
    - TIFF
    - WBMP
    - XBM
    - XPM

  Internal savers:

    - XCF
    - BMP
    - JPEG
    - PNG
    - TIFF

  The advantage of the internal loaders is the higher speed compared to the
  external plug-ins. On the other hand the external plug-ins do have more
  and more file formats are available.

Included (external) plug-ins


  To reduce the size of this package, only some selected plug-ins are included.
  Additional plug-ins will be available in separate packages.
  At the moment all programs are linked statically on AmiCygnix. Many plug-ins
  do have a filesize of 14 - 15 MB because of this.

  All installed plug-ins are stored in the directory "Cygnix:CygnixPPC/gtk2.24/

    close them by hand.
