Linux.com: An Interview with Manish SinghSep 08, 1999, 14:25 (0 Talkback[s])
[ Thanks to Jeff Alami for this link. ]
"Manish Singh (firstname.lastname@example.org) is the chief maintainer of the Gimp project. The Gimp (GNU Image Manipulation Program) is a free tool for photo retouching, image composition and image authoring."
"Linux.com: How are ports to other platforms, such as Windows and BeOS, progressing? Who's working on these ports?"
"Manish Singh: Tor Lillqvist has been doing the Win32 port, and it seems to be about on par with the Unix version. It's maybe a bit slower, UI-wise, since Gtk+ still has some issues on win32. Once Gtk+ 1.4 comes out, the Windows port will basically be there already."
"The BeOS port is being done by Shawn T. Amundson and James Mitchell, and it's still very much in development. I don't really know what the timeframe is on that; it most definately won't be there for 1.2. Their port is on a much larger scope, since they are using the native BeOS toolkit for the app UI."
"Linux.com: Where do you see Gimp being headed in the long term?"
"Manish Singh: Well, for the next development cycle, there will be a lot of features put in for film work There'll be big internal changes to support 16-bit int and float images, plus UI stuff to easily deal with multiple frames."
