Interview with Gimp hacker Sven Nuemann


Author: JT Smith “The problem with the current Gimp codebase is that most parts of it originate back to a time when Gimp was based on Motif and the GTK object system did not exist. Since then only parts of the
core have been rewritten to make use of the benefits the object-oriented approach gives. Also, user interface and core functionality is totally mixed up. When trying to add new features to the
Gimp-1.2 codebase, it is very easy to get lost and very likely that you break things.”
