Hi, I've already sent this mail several weeks ago, but didn't get much feedback except for some vague offers for help. Since we are now close to actually releasing GIMP 2.4.0, we should probably have a look at this list again.
Since I have been away for some weeks, I don't really know how much of this has already happened. It would be nice if someone could give me and the other people subscribed here a short update on the state of the new web-site. 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 if 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 perhaps that work is better spend on the release notes on the new web pages. - announcement 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 one... - 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 perhaps?
