Glimplse - gimp fork
« on: November 24, 2019, 04:31:21 PM »
copypaste from news page:
In the world of open source community, forking means you can freely experiment a project with whatever changes you want, without affecting the original resources. Mentioned by TheNextWeb, The Register, and other top design and news sites, Glimpse  is a recent noteworthy fork of GIMP, one of the world's biggest open source photo editors.
link to news page where you can read whole news article:

I thought that was interesting myself. Ended up seeing an article on Facebook about Glimpse. Looks exactly the same, except with all of the separate editing windows consolidated into one. Will be interested to see the changes that they implement here in the future to distinguish the project.

It would have been nice if they mentioned a list of changes... the screenshot looks like the gimp dev build. I guess this sits on the backburner until they actually implement their intended changes to the project.

"they created this fork because they did not like the GIMP name."
that's one quote about their reason for existence. The name is already taken by GLobal IMPlicit SEarch, but that's ok, looks like they're more important
