This packet has very useful FU-scripts, but it slows down a bit the Gimp startup. Because it is not critical, overall estimate is good.
After updating my 2014 Gimp extension package with this 2015 package, Gimp started reporting an error on startup with "procedure entry point g_get_home_dir_ut8 could not be located in the dynamic link library libglib-2.0-0.dill". I uninstalled Gimp, python, and this extension package, then re-installed everything after restarting the computer. Prior to reinstalling this extension package, I started up gimp with no problems reported. After installing this package, this same problem is reported every time Gimp is started up. 'Python 2.7.10.amd64' installed on Win7-64 Premium operating system. The error repeats every time. Update. After posting the above, I went back and installed this extension package using the default setting, which does not install the animation package (GAP). Gimp starts up fine using the defaults.
I get a bunch of "library not found" error dialogues. So the start up takes several minutes as I click through each dialog. I have to rate it as poor because the load with constant errors is untenable.
Digital artists will be also interested in a wonderful Mac drawing app named MyBrushes for Mac. The whole drawing process could be saved as drawing video and playback anytime.
If you want to slow down the Gimp program startup, this is the way to do it.
