The XCF file format is currently documented primarily by the Gimp source, and by the very old and sketchy devel-docs/xcf.txt in the source tree.
I have attempted to write a better specification, encouraged by Dave Neary and partly based on my experiences writing a third-party XCF reader (xcftools, at <http://henning.makholm.net/software>). It is at http://henning.makholm.net/xcftools/xcfspec.txt I would like to contribute it as a replacement for xcf.txt, but I would like it to be correct first. I would appreciate it if somebody who are familiar with the format could look over my text and check it for obvious mistakes. Related to this: While researching the format I discovered a buffer overrun somewhere in the XCF parsing code. Is there a recommended way to report security bugs confidentially? (I asked on IRC and was encouraged to just use the public bugzilla, but I'm uncomfortable by following such advice gathered on a lazy IRC channel). -- Henning Makholm "*Vi vil ha wienerbrød!*" _______________________________________________ Gimp-developer mailing list Gimp-developer@lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU https://lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU/mailman/listinfo/gimp-developer
