Much apologies. I was always under the impression that while there is a working version, more work could have been used for adding features and such. I blame my lack of understanding of what GEGL is supposed to Do, as opposed to what it will Allow Gimp to do. > It works.

Basically, what's needed is a roadmap of how GEGL will be integrated? Complete with a definition of all the parts that need to use it, and how? Maybe this should be developed before a Gimp roadmap is defined? This way developers would have a better idea of how much work will need to be done to integrate GEGL, and how it can be distributed into different releases. > It's worth a minute to point out the notable, and deserved, absence of > adjustment layers from this list.

Thanks for the explanation! I actually had no idea what the difference between adjustment layers and layer effects is supposed to be, so didn't dare to add it twice. ;) __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
