Re: [Gimp-developer] Adding use-event-history to it too late?

Yep, I'm looking forward to 2.8. It looks very promising.

I patched my version of 2.6.12, so have it working just the way I
want, I was more thinking of other users who have the same problem and
don't know how to patch and compile Gimp from source. But I do agree
that it's a good idea to call it quits for 2.6, even with a few bugs
remaining, so you guys can focus on the latest release.
