here's a list of things that would be nice to have for the 2.4.0
release, in addition to the actual release tarball. Help with these
tasks would be very much appreciated. Please volunteer.
- new website
Jimmac and others are working on that. I guess they would appreciate
more help. Please join gimp-web list of you want to contribute.
- release notes
There are release notes being prepared with the new website. Would
be cool if some people could help to update and extend this document
- press release
Not sure if that is needed but we used to do that for GIMP 2.2. But

This should be ascii text that can be sent to mailing-lists. It should
include links to the mirrors for download and to the release notes on
the web-site. Of course also to the press release in case that we do
- migration howto
A document, perhaps as part of the new website, describing how
to migrate from GIMP 2.2 to 2.4. Should mention dependencies that
need to be updated. Also tell people that plug-ins for 2.2 should
continue to work. Suggest that users of gimp-gap update this plug-in
to version 2.2.2. Also mention the switch to Tiny-Fu and the fact that
scripts might need to be updated. Perhaps also link to the 2.4 API
reference manual on developer.gimp.org and point developers
to the lists of new symbols in 2.4.
- script-fu migration howto
A document, perhaps as part of the new website, that explains what
needs to be done to fix scripts that fail to run correctly with
GIMP 2.4. Perhaps also explain new features in 2.4 that are relevant
for script authors. Point to documentation for Tiny-Fu.
Are there other things that we should/need to prepare? Release parties
