Well, the tabbed dialog boxes, "docks", are very nice. They save a lot of desktop room (which is needed when you are editing large images, and arnt willing to zoom out a lot.) Also, the fact that it has a sane text plugin is nice. (I switched over to a pango based font system, so all my truetype fonts "cant" (read as: Im not willing to add them back to X.) be seen by gtk1 apps.) Also, the additional layer blending modes are nice. Ive used both Grain modes already in some images, and they are nice additions to plain Addition and Subtraction. And with all of this, the image scaling dialog box has linear/cubic right there, so I dont have to go the whole way into preferences to change which scaling mode I want. (Which was a big fucking pain in the ass.) And in addition to that, having editable font boxen is very nice. (Though, Id like a way to force it to be a rendered layer, because when you change the layer, and accidently edit the layer's text, it erases everything you did.) People who are photoshop fanatics will like the menubar (which I hate since I already use the right click menu.) The only thing I _dont_ like is there is no gimp-perl packaged for 1.3 in debin sid. (Is it not available for 1.3, or are ari and che not willing to package it?) -- Patrick "Diablo-D3" McFarland || [EMAIL PROTECTED] "Computer games don't affect kids; I mean if Pac-Man affected us as kids, we'd all be running around in darkened rooms, munching magic pills and listening to repetitive electronic music." -- Kristian Wilson, Nintendo, Inc, 1989 _______________________________________________ Gimp-developer mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://lists.xcf.berkeley.edu/mailman/listinfo/gimp-developer
