FWIW, here are my initial thoughts and comments on GMIP and its niw.
The first time I ran GIMP after the introduction I only wanted to run
something from the toolbox menu. I was surprised when I closed the unwanted
window and found that GIMP went away.
I find I'm having a little trouble adjusting to the relocation of menus from
the Toolbox to the niw. This is due to menus that were on top of each other
under Xtns (for example) now appearing side by side. I'm slowly getting used
to the new layout.
The two DnD targets seemed redundant at first until I realized the one in the
niw disappears when it becomes a regular image window. As I never use DnD with
GIMP the target area at the top of the Toolbox windows is just wasted space. I
don't need to have Wilber staring out at me from the top of the Toolbox so it
would be nice if there was an option to turn off display of the DnD target in
I have image window menus turned off in my preferences. However, the niw still
shows a menu bar. I don't have a problem with that as the menu bar still goes
away once I have opened an image. Having the menu bar always appear in the niw
is something that will help new users.
