With old plugins, all interaction happens in a plugin's window.
it to any tool like brush or crop that works directly on canvas.
Thanks! that helps to clarify the term.
About this specific point, I believe that many of us want more features
going "on-canvas" when possible.
In GIMP dev version, the filter are also previewed on-canvas (when
implemented as GEGL operations). I already discussed that it would be
very cool if import could end up with on-canvas preview as well at some
point (especially useful with lossy formats, etc.). These are only
passive canvas interaction, but I could imagine active interaction on
the canvas too in the future, and no only for tools. :-)
Canvas interaction are often much more intuitive than through a dialog
or a dock. And reproducing the image inside the dialog/dock is often
more of a workaround than a solution in my opinion (though in some
cases, it may have its good points).
