Hi all, As any of you who have been following CVS know, we have been working towards a 2.0 pre1 release for the end of this month, and there are now very few blockers to that release left.
However, there are more blockers than are going to be done in the next week. So we're going to have another release (1.3.21). This should come out sometime during the next week. And the 2.0 pre1 release will be pushed back about 2 weeks, to (give or take) the 15th of October. Just to keep ye up to date, the list of blockers for the 2.0 release (which is mostly a filled out list of the things mentioned at camp), and their current status, is below. Blockers for 2.0 prereleases: ----------------------------- Path tool: 1) moving of strokes/paths, *DONE* 2) being able to connect two strokes, *DONE* 3) dragging on curve segments, *DONE* 4) libart stroking, Mostly done 5) im/export into files. *DONE* Text tool features missing: 1) GUI for text boxes Back-end done 2) Implementation of text transforms 3) Font list/selector improvements 4) Text outline Not a blocker Help browser features missing: 1) Symbolic references for every core function *DONE* 2) Mechanism for cross-referencing with 3rd party *DONE* documentation 3) Registering of documentation files with the core *DONE* at startup, with references. libgimp API changes missing: 1) libgck must die *RESOLVED* 2) Thumbnail API exposed Neary done 3) libgimpmisc API changes 4) gimp_dialog_new () 5) 64 bit clean libgimp All in all, on that list there are 2 or 3 worrying things that might not be done in 2 weeks time, but most of them look like they will be done by then. We do need to clean up Bugzilla a little again. There are now 75 bugs with milestone --, it would be nice to get these sorted to the right place before we hit pre-releases. http://bugzilla.gnome.org/buglist.cgi?product=GIMP&bug_status=UNCONFIRMED&bug_status=NEW&bug_status=ASSIGNED&bug_status=NEEDINFO&bug_status=REOPENED&target_milestone=---&cmdtype=doit&order=%27Importance%27&form_name=query There are also 159 bugs open against the 2.0 release (milestone 1.3.x or 2.0). We need to start reducing this number now. So if you have a little spare time, please have a look at these bug reports, either to help close them or to reduce the amount of time needed to fix them. http://bugzilla.gnome.org/buglist.cgi?product=GIMP&bug_status=UNCONFIRMED&bug_status=NEW&bug_status=ASSIGNED&bug_status=NEEDINFO&bug_status=REOPENED&target_milestone=1.3.x&target_milestone=2.0&cmdtype=doit&order=%27Importance%27&form_name=query Thanks for your time, Dave. -- David Neary, Lyon, France E-Mail: [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ Gimp-user mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://lists.xcf.berkeley.edu/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user
