A few days ago, the 5th of February 2013, GIMP 2.8.4 has been released. So what’s the fuss? That’s a minor version, no new feature, nothing that already existed before. This is only a stable release, with bug fixes (which is already good).
But for us, at Studio Girin, this is still a small but nice milestone: this is indeed the released first version with code contribution from Studio Girin!
You will see my name (Jehan) in the release announcement
As I said, our contributions are only bug fixes for now (including fixing a crash case case). But this is a start. We have already a few more fixes and features in the development branch for what will be the next major version (GIMP 2.10), and more coming up.
Note also that it is a little unfair to see only my name over there. I have worked closely with Aryeom. Basically our goal is to adapt our tools to professional usage. And she helps me by telling me all the problems she encounters, and what could be better. And that’s something already! Others just complain…
We are proud to be a small part in a great software used by so many people around. And we just wanted to say it. 🙂
