Hi Liam,

I've been unable to track down the specified vapi files. I've tried
github, gitlab; so far no luck. These are not available at GIMP
branch either. Should I open a Request-Ticket at GIMP bug tracker,
the devs to share these files?
They are built automatically when gimp is compiled, and should be
included in the release; it would be fine to file a bug requesting that
they be included so people can build vala plugins.

I can send you the ones i have (built on Linux, though). The .deps
files are probably not useful as i expect they refer to versions of
libraries, but these are all text files so you can look at them and

It's  always best to copy the mailing list on replies - someone else on
the list may have exactly what you need for Windows.

You'll also need libgimp.dll to link the plugin against. I don't know
if we've updated gimptool to know about vala yet, if so it'll show you
where the vapi files should be. I'm sorry this is so rough round the
edges - if you manage to et something working and feel up to writing it
up on the gimp wiki that would help a lot of people, i expect.
