Too much silence. I see problems here :-) Probably means most people agree with the issue, but that I am not the only one who find it a hard question to deal with.
I had tought on an unclean alternative to have a higher time resolution on gdk/gtk+ events, that would be to have a core GIMP time object with higher resolution. Events would then be timed GIMP side whenever they are received. The upside: this would not depend on other projetcs to implement. The downside: if for some reason the events get delayed to be passed to the GIMP, they'd be misshandled. On Saturday 21 August 2004 01:57, Joao S. O.
