Please correct me if I'm wrong, but that mockup basically aims to change
the aspect of the dialog without adding any enhancement. The tool does
exactly the same but the dialog looks like Photoshop's one.
The only improvement I see is the ability to see the actual influence of
the overlap value on the color gradient, wich is cool, but I don't know
if it's cool enough to change the whole dialog, that already works fine.
Maybe it would be better for future versions to redesign the dialog
adding some real enhancements to the tool, like arbitrary 3-point
gradient selection and/or a curve for tweaking. In that case, the use of
a wheel is better than a linear scale because it matches better with the
well known color wheel scheme.
p.s.: I support the idea that Campbell Barton suggested a couple of days
ago. Maybe it would be better to create a new mailing list focused on
functionality discussion. This would avoid the frequent conflict user
requests vs. developers priorities and would bring some fresh ideas for
I don't want to bug any developer with functionality requests if this
list is only focused on coding, but I'd really like to have a place for
discussing features and useability issues that are also very important
for the overall quality of Gimp.
