I've updated the online version of the GIMP 1.3 API reference at


Thanks to the help of Mitch and DinDinX, the documentation has
improved since version 1.3.20. However there is still a lot of work to
do. We'd like to concentrate on documentation of the libraries for now
since the core API hasn't really settled enough yet.

If someone wants to contribute, there are several things you could
work on:

- Completion of the libgimp* API references

     This basically means adding gtk-doc style comments to
     undocumented functions as well as improving the introductory
     parts that are found in the tmpl directories.

- Proof-reading the existing docs

     More or less the same workflow as above. Please note that the
     comments for the libgimp PDB wrappers are generated from the PDB
     documentation that is found in tools/pdbgen/pdb.

- Addition of some introductory chapters

     This could be for example "Compiling a GIMP Plug-In" or "Porting
     a GIMP Plug-In to the 2.0 API" (Jeff Trefftzs expressed interest
     to do the latter).

There is a README in the devel-docs directory that should get you
started with gtk-doc and DocBook XML. If you are interested or if you
have any questions please let the list know.
