Rupert, that's wonderful news on a Sunday morning! Thank you so much for your
I'm not so good at understanding patches and things... If this is accepted,
would it mean it would be available natively, without GEGL projection?
Since LAB uses a perception-based definition of lightness, this would
effectively solve the Color mode problem, the two being two sides of the same
coin. What this means is that it makes a fix for our present predicament
to release: as a completely new mode, the "LAB Lightness" would avoid the
compatibility issue that a fixed Color mode would present. Why didn't I think
of this during the discussion? So I would urge all concerned to initially
on this new mode, and please consider an early release.
