I've spent a bazillion hours this year on partial rewrites of the INDEXED->RGB quantization, mostly to improve quality but partly to abstract the code away from its RGB8-centricity. It's all been off-tree however until I thought it was ready; it was actually very-nearly-ready six months ago but then I made the mistake of CVS-updating and when I finally got enough of the new dependancies (and sub-dependancies, and...) installed to get it to compile, I couldn't make it stop crashing at startup for weeks and then sorta gave up until 1.3 was more dev-friendly which it probably is now but my circumstances have changed enormously and I no longer have time for much of anything. I'll make a point of trying CVS HEAD again when I get a few straight hours and have steeled myself to face the probable merge-pain! In other but similar news PUPUS also stalled a while back due to serious lack of time. A simple prototype is running but what I would consider to be the actual *interesting* parts such as the work-scheduler are stubbed with ultra-simple implementations which do not well-reflect where I wished to take the project. I'd still be prepared to do a code-drop such as it is, but I can't see it being of much practical (or even educational) use. Schedulewise my GIMP-hacking-time is likely to be squeezed even thinner in the coming year, though I'll make time to land the RGB->INDEXED rewrite and hopefully perform the optimizations it really rather needs (more agressive inlining and the conversion of a lot of floating-point code to fixed-point, I think). --Adam -- Adam D.
