Now that a few days are over since I first posted here and after I've read your answers - Alexandre, Clayton and Mitch - I can now see that it wasn't your intention and that it happened just accidentally while everybody was waiting for a native version to finally arrive.

So I want to apologize for somehow overreacting in my posting under the, now that I can see, wrong impression of being dropped. Sorry.

And thank you, that you've put the link to my site back online.

If you don't mind and to show you that I still want to contribute to the GIMP community I've hacked on the sources and found a workaround for the bug which let plugin dialogs pop up behind the main windows. (well, it's more like a dirty hack, but it works quite well) I've attached the patch.

And I've compiled a native version for Mountain Lion and put it online. All plugins I've included in the past are still there and the user manual installers work too. G'MIC is included as well. Builds for Lion and SnowLeopard with support for 32 bit architectures will follow soon. And I'll try to compile it for PPC Macs too.

So, if you don't mind, maybe you could mention on your download page, that the builds on GIMP on OS X are now native too.

Finally, if you still want, I'll be back.


BTW, I'll update my SVN repo in the next few days, so that you can take a look at all patches I've made to GIMP and other sources.
