Hi Chamal,

Quoting Chamal De Silva <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>:
> 1. What is the programming language used to develop gimp.

The GIMP is almost entirely coded in C. There are plug-ins in python, perl and
scheme too, and there are some hardware specific routines in assembler, designed
to speed up rendering on certain common platforms.

Any C compiler should do. You will also need automake, autoconf, cvs, intltool,
gettext and some other tools if you wouyld like to build from CVS. The details
are in the files HACKING and INSTALL.

You will also need a working installation of GTK+ 2.4.x (for the HEAD or
development releases), and Xft, fontconfig and friends. And helper libraries for
all the file formats you would like to see compiled in (there is a longish list,
again this is in INSTALL.

> 3. What is the latest version of GIMPs source code.

This is always HEAD in CVS. However, the latest released source code is version
2.1.1. The latest stable version is 2.0.2.
