HoHoHo folks !
Today is St David's day, so I couldn't resist in releasing another G'MIC version for 2011 ! I promise this is the last of the year though.
I'm quite happy with the result, there have been a lot of work on optimizing the internal parser, so regular users won't probably notice many differences with the previous version, but still, this one is better :)

Here is the Changelog :

New features :

- New shortcuts '-g' (for '-gradient'), '-j' (for '-image'), '-y' (for '-unroll') and '-z' (for '-crop'). All one-char shortcuts are now reserved.
- New filter 'Colors / Colormap' in GIMP plug-in, which indexes an image with a pre-defined or user-defined colormap :



- New filter 'Patterns / Dices' in GIMP plug-in, which transform an image into a mosaic of dices :



- New command '-colormap' which try to find the "best" colormap that can be used to index images (actually works for an arbitrary number of channels).
- New command '-autoindex' which indexes image values with the best possible colormap.
- New command '-solidify' which interpolate colors to fill transparent regions in images. This filter is also available in the GIMP plug-in, under section 'Enhancement / Solidify'.



Improvements :

- Optimized the way G'MIC commands are detected. Loops run a little bit faster now.
- Improved the auto-completion script for bash shells. Single-dash commands only are not listed as possible double-dash completions.
- Improved command '-index'. Now the level of dithering can be adjusted (between [0,1]).
- Improved command '-pointcloud3d' so that using it on scalar images renders gray-level objects (not redish).
- Added support for URL starting with 'https', for loading images and custom commands file.

Modifications :

- Shortcut '-b' now refers to '-blur' instead of '-break'.

Topic's "on the road to" not "new features of" Naggobot. Thought the same as you many months back (or was that years) back, but kept it to myself, but then I got an epiphany. lol

Can you put all additional filter together?
I can't update from web to get 3rd,5th,7th "additional filter".
Thanks!

Is anyone working on making gimp plugin versions of the -colormap, -autoindex and -index? If not I could make the plugin implementations. It is boring GUI coding but needs to be done and is not much work.

humm...maybe we may better discuss here
www.flickr.com/groups/gmic/discuss/72157628349803511/

Anyway actually i just saved, using the Fav button the command as custom codes, i was not planning to make a proper filter gui but you are right may be a good idea

I do have a still vague project for a -assign_colormap plugin based on this cool idea of noion6oino
www.flickr.com/groups/gmic/discuss/72157625343734585/

But i had problem to trace useful discussion better move to www.flickr.com/groups/gmic/discuss/72157628349803511/ where will remain easy to search

and just there there is a code snippet that i found interesting

Maybe a filter for '-autoindex' could be useful (but I doubt a little bit, since this gives similar results to call the 'Image / Mode / Indexed' menu of GIMP). But what would be the use of having plug-in entries for '-colormap' and '-index' ?
I don't get it.

Note that the G'MIC framework already contain more than 700 commands, so really much more than the number of filters in the plug-in. Some commands are here to be used in an image processing pipeline, but probably useless to be individual filters for the plug-in.

As i wrote i found Various/custom code , combined with the Fav button the perfect solution,I just rename the Fav as" Index" or "Colormap" and itis done

so any gmic command become ready for use or reuse,but also here i used the command only because i need to complete a a pipeline i can't see reason for index from gmic
(for index Gimp has a advantage , allow to manually interact with the palette )


Instead i would find interesting a more complex filter that could
1 autoindex ,

2 autoindex but on the base of equalized image

3 assign a colormap, the user may define 4 color and a interpolation method ( idea taken from that palette filter linked above )

i do like the idea even fearing some hidden complexity and unexpected results with option 3

but for just index i think a filter superfluous

@Ronounours
@Photocomix

I stand corrected. Sorry for the bad phrasing, I should have said "does it need to be done?"

Thank a lot partha
gimp 2.7 doesn't require a different version at least i can't see differences when using your or standard build

But it is really cool have a 64 bit version

Where a lot of request to have Gimp with gmic preinstalled

So for Windows users i modified the last gimp 2.7.5 , 32bit build from Partha to include G'MIC 1.5.0.8.

And allso some other excellent plugin much harder to find and install as GAP-2.7 and Mathmap 1.3.5 are included and a collection of script for animation and animated logo

No installer is not needed just unzip and if you wish make a desktop shortcut for gimprun.exe
anyway start from gimprun.exe not from gimp.exe

All the additions to GIMP, as GMIC , MM, GAP ,are grouped t in category in subfolders of .gimp-27 , and may be also be accessed and switched on off from gimp Edit/preferences/folder/...

here more and download link

@Partha
that is a cool idea ...i run a couple of pool on GC and gimptalk asking what in the user opinion should be in gimp but is not or is only available as addon

When i did i was thinking more to general resources then to plugin but was a unanimous request for GMIC
