[Gimp-developer] ANNOUNCE: GIMP 1.3.22

2003-11-03 Thread Sven Neumann
Hey GIMPers,

there's a new development snapshot in the 1.3 series of The GIMP,
version 1.3.22, now available for download from


or from one of the mirrors listed at http://gimp.org/download.html

This release focuses on bug fixes and thus it should be the most
stable development release we have had to date. There are also a few
nice features which have been added since the last release. So please
give this version a lot of testing and keep those bug reports coming
in to http://bugzilla.gnome.org/.

If you are upgrading from an earlier 1.3 release, please note that the
gimprc and sessionrc file formats changed. We suggest you remove (or
move away) your personal ~/.gimp-1.3 directory and do a fresh user

Happy GIMPing, Sven

 Is there any special reason that (almost?) all win32-specific stuff
 seems to be missing from release tarballs

No. The reason is nobody has tried to build for Win32 from a tarball,
so nobody has noticed... or at least not reported her problems.

  (the same thing seemed to be the case with 1.3.21 already). The
  build directory is missing, 

Hmm, how are you building GIMP? Does a mingw build really use the
build directory?

If you are using MSVC, I guess the real question is, is there any
chance that we will be able to claim supporting a MSVC build out of
the box with a straight face? The stuff in the build directory is
almost unmaintained, and requires manual intervention on the builder's
system. Is manual editing needed for the makefile.msc files? Anyway,
doesn't the makefile.msc files refer to ../glib/build, not a build
directory in the GIMP source directory? (I.e., they require you to
have the glib (what version?) sources parallel to GIMP sources)

(If the GIMP's build directory is to be included in tarballs, it should
be added to the top Makefile.am.)

  and also libgimpbase/gimpwin32-io.h

That probably should be added to libgimbase/Makefile.am's EXTRA_DIST?
The EXTRA_HEADERS macro doesn't seem to be used for anything in the
generated Makefile?
