            Hello everyone!

            We are going to release GIMP 2.10.2 with many bug fixes and
            even a few new
            features on the (hopeful) date of 2018/05/20.

        Any hope to get documentation about Gimp-2.10 new .xcf format?
        This one is obsolete

    Indeed, the XCF doc has not been much updated these last year.

    I have just now updated a bit the docs for:
    - zlib compression (which is now a possible internal tile compression);
    - new layer modes;
    - update in the header with the "precision" field.

    See the recent log commits:

    There is at least one more update relative to group mask. I will do
    this tomorrow.
    There are also some changes relative to endianness, but I'll have to
    dig deeper (it looks like it was only a bug which would have touched
    some development XCF format only).

    I will complete the docs with these 2 more information tomorrow. Now
    I'll go to bed!

        Digikam / Kimageformats  can't display new .xcf thumnails
        created with Gimp-2.10. It seems developers need this
        documentation to solve bug.

    Give them this link:

P.S.: actually I gave the link on the bugtracker myself! :-)

     From the contents of recent commits, they will be able to easily
    find the differences. That is enough to start until I complete the docs.
    It's not that much change, format-wise (though it may be quite some
    work, because of the many new layer modes). :-)
    Thanks for reminding us.

Great! Thanks for all these useful informations and all your work on Gimp. :)
