To update on progress, expect the public beta for #glimpse 0.2.0 within the next couple of weeks. 🙂
The release will rebase on 2.10.18, and have a new 64-bit MSI that supports custom Windows install locations. It will also have various minor quality of life improvements.
Depending on how we progress, we may also provide an experimental #glimpse Linux AppImage (one vanilla, one with extra plug-ins) based on some excellent third party work we have been pointed to.
@glimpse I've also raised a Github Issue so people can find out a little more about our thinking and background info.
We have a question for our userbase! Since we provided a Wiki page on installing the PhotoGIMP plugin, several people have suggested #glimpse should use those keyboard shortcuts by default.
Which would you prefer to use? (We're running polls on Twitter & Mastodon)
After being prompted to do so on birdsite, I’ve written a wiki page that explains how to install the “PhotoGIMP” plug-in on @glimpse
The splash screen and app launcher steps are optional, but I added them mostly because once you’ve applied the plug-in it’s not really the vanilla #glimpse experience anymore 😅🤷♂️

When we last counted on 2020-05-04, #glimpse had around 30,000 active users, which is amazing!
There is some debate within our project about whether we should start hosting a self-help forum for those users this summer.
Please let us know if you have any suggestions. 🙂
As we have had a couple of people ask, we already have a policy of not maintaining a “master” branch in #glimpse public git repositories.
Congratulations to the GNU Image Manipulation Program contributors for successfully releasing 2.10.20 🎉
At this scary time of civil unrest, our thoughts go out to all #glimpse users & contributors across the USA.
FOSS does not exist in a vacuum set apart from the outside world. We stand in solidarity with those demanding justice and condemn the heavy-handed police response.
Please note that we have temporarily restricted access to the #glimpse Github repositories and our public Matrix channel.
This pre-emptive action has been taken as a precaution to protect our contributors. We are keeping the situation under review.
For those interested, an online version of @lgm kicks off today!
