Re: [Gimp-developer] GIMP 2.9 XCF files and digiKam, gnome file browsers, etc

Is the GIMP 2.9 XCF file format? API? (not sure what the right phrase is) stable enough that it makes sense to hope that other applications like digiKam and various other file browsers and image viewers could start showing thumbnails?

For example, digiKam can create thumbnails for 2.8 XCF files but not for 2.9 XCF files.

I'd like to ask the digiKam devs to provide support for showing a thumbnail for GIMP 2.9 XCF files. But if the XCF files are likely to change substantially before 2.10 is released, maybe now is not a good time.

Digikam actually has't got to implement anything itself for that to work. The thumbnails are generated by KIO plugin, the 
full image view by QImageIO plugins. Check git:// for the imageio plugins (I should move the 
Krita imageio plugins there...) and
 for the thumbnailers.
