subpackage, which provides hundreds of pre-built Gimp plug-ins created
using Netpbm2Gimp, has been updated to correspond to version 10.70.04

fixes and improvements made since the previous release of

Release of Netpbm2Gimp v1.5

Netpbm2Gimp v1.5 has just been released. The intention of this version is to help Netpbm2Gimp compile the programs included in Netpbm v10.59.00 (released 28JUN2012). To that end, there is now support for the visual, color_depth, have_opacity, and opacity_plane fields of struct pam and for the Netpbm functions pm_readlittlelong2(), pnm_addopacityrow(), pnm_makerowrgba(), and every function defined by Netpbm's matrix.c. The gimp-netpbm2gimp-plugins package, which provides hundreds of prebuilt Gimp plug-ins created using Netpbm2Gimp, includes such recent Netpbm programs as pamtosrf, srftopam, and ppmtospu.... read more

Release of Netpbm2Gimp v1.2

Netpbm2Gimp v1.2 has just been released. Two major bugs that this
version fixes include one that prevented plug-ins from terminating
cleanly and another that swaps black and white in PBM filters if the
Gimp colormap happens to list white before black. Other changes in
Netpbm2Gimp v1.2 include the addition of more functions from the
Netpbm library.

The gimp-netpbm2gimp-plugins package, which provides hundreds of
prebuilt GIMP plug-ins created by converting unmodified Netpbm
programs to GIMP plug-ins using Netpbm2Gimp, has been updated to
correspond to version 10.49.01 of Netpbm.... read more

Release of Netpbm2Gimp v1.1

Netpbm2Gimp 1.1 traps standard output and standard error and displays
these in dialog boxes when the plug-in finishes running. This is
particularly useful when converting Netpbm "analyzer" programs, which
write their analyses directly to the standard output device instead of
via the Netpbm pm_message() function.

Netpbm2Gimp is a tool that makes developing GUI-friendly plug-ins for
the GIMP as simple as writing a command-line Netpbm program. With
Netpbm2Gimp, programmers writing graphics filters can focus on filter
development and leave the complex GUI interactions to Netpbm2Gimp.
The Netpbm2Gimp project also provides a gimp-netpbm2gimp-plugins
package that contains hundreds of prebuilt GIMP plug-ins created by
converting unmodified Netpbm programs to GIMP plug-ins using
