SourceForge, what the...?

GIMP - Tue, 05/26/2015 - 23:11

Some of you might remember that in November 2013, we abandoned SourceForge (SF) as the primary download site for the GIMP installers for Windows platforms and moved the files to our own download server, download.gimp.org

The tons of links on the web pointing to the former site made keeping the installers there as well a necessity, though, and since SF claimed that our outrage over their "installer with benefits" was based on a misunderstanding, this seemed to be a low-risk approach.

However we are receiving reports that people who get there by chance receive small installers that include additional software. And it's no clicks on those 'big green download arrow' ads this time, we've tried ourselves. SF has not responded to our inquiry yet, and we found that the maintainer of the GIMP for Windows installers is locked out of that SF project now.

Update:
And now SF is launching an attempt at damage control.

Ars Technica has a nice summary, with insightful comments.

Please go to our own downloads page to get the GIMP for Windows installers.

ZeMarmot, Libre Movie to be made with GIMP, Blender, Ardour

GIMP - Tue, 05/05/2015 - 08:36

During Libre Graphics Meeting 2015 last week in Toronto our very own Jehan Pagès announced a new open animated movie project, ZeMarmot. It's a road movie with a marmot as protagonist.

The team will be using just free/libre applications for the production: GIMP, Blender, Ardour, and a few others. Jehan will also resume his work on animation features in GIMP, extend OpenRaster file format to support animation, and improve Blender's non-linear video editor as much as he can.

You can support the campaign at IndieGoGo.
