Sorry for long time without news about Gimphoto :)
I've been busy with Gimphoto 1.4.3, next version Gimphoto based on GIMP 2.4.3.
may be you complaint about why it takes so long to create the next version of Gimphoto :)
I try to explained it, next version of Gimphoto is based on modified and recompile the Gimp 2.4.3 source code, so for now Gimphoto can be called as GIMP "fork".
This method is different from old method that done with modifying binary files using HEX Editor, the new method is longer but Gimphoto will benefit from modified source code, because for next version Gimphoto can also be compiled for Linux and MacOSX.
The next version of Gimphoto will also bring new better menu layout, new great themes, big icon toolbox, new menu for Photography tool and filters, and also packed with many great filters.
And the last great addition to Gimphoto is GIMPHOTO DESKTOP.
This is a program that i specially develop to bring Gimphoto to the next level, may be you curious about what is Gimphoto Desktop.
Gimphoto Desktop is external application that can modify Gimphoto interface become single integrated user interface so Gimphoto will appear as MDI (Multiple Document Interface) ala Photoshop. This is the most complaint about Gimphoto user interface from regular Windows users.
Using Gimphoto Desktop will improve so much about Gimphoto user interface experience, but Gimphoto Desktop is totally separated from Gimphoto program so if you already like Gimphoto scattered interface then okay, you can just ignore Gimphoto Desktop and only install Gimphoto as usual.
Gimphoto Desktop development takes very long time that because my C programming is so rusty :p hehehe... (it's been about 10 years since last time i programming with C under DOS)
beside that Gimphoto Desktop is external program that try to intercept each Gimphoto action so this make things more complicated, i must check everything is safe and running well with Gimphoto and Windows, if not then Gimphoto Desktop will screwed Gimphoto or Windows.
Gimphoto Desktop will using separate installer, different installer from Gimphoto.
Gimphoto Desktop Installer will also include with PSPI (Photoshop Filter Interface for Gimp) and a couple free Photoshop Filter.
so stay tune, next version will be release around February 2008... (^__^)=b
