It's been a good couple days for hacking. Seth is definately my hero this week, as he found the cause of two show-stopping bugs in my GIMP plug-ins, one of which had me at the end of my wits. Now color previews work in antialias and Adaptive Contrast Enhancement, so I released a new version of antialias to celebrate. A new version of ACE will follow soon, but I want to get a few more things done there first.
I also whipped up a patch for raph's <cite>Wet
Dream</cite>, to enable it as a GIMP plug-in. It does
have a bug which prevents it from writing the image back to
the GIMP, which is a big block for usability, but it should
be a very quick fix once someone recognizies the symptoms
(gimp_drawable_merge_shadow complains that "assertion `gimage->shadow != NULL' failed.").
Overall, I'm happy with the work done there, considering it's one afternoon's hack. It's enough to make sure that anyone who wants to see Wet Dream as a plug-in will have a real base to work on. The patch was nothing complicated, to be sure, but I think I've finally reached a comfortable stage with GTK+ now... An important step in beating the "but that's too hard to program" mind-game.
