@lertsenem according to the first post it's because they refused to rename it. Initial release will be identical but rebranded

@ChameleonScales @brainblasted Really looking forward to seeing where it goes! I think having a bigger, more "mainstream" user base could be really good for the project.

@stragu I like the idea, although I don't find the double A so pretty and I think if we are to re-brand it and target a wider audience, we should give it a pretty name.

@ChameleonScales it was more of a joke, related to this toot: mastodon.social/@wakest/100847
😄
« Glimpse » is an excellent name ! 👌🏽

@maverynthia I actually wish every other image editor did like GIMP in that regard. It prevents accidental loss of project files and makes more sense. Many programs in other categories than image editing do it this way.

@funnypanja as you can see in their latest blog post
getglimpse.app/posts/
they plan to release the first version in september.
You can always compile the pre-release version from the source code on their github though. Personally I'll wait for the release. Unless you need it for serious reasons (e.g school project) there's no rush for trying it.

@funnypanja it's not that difficult. I could help you do it if you need, but only if you have a good reason to need it because it will take me some time to first do it right myself.
