Changes for version 1.061

  • closed big, BIG security hole on password authenticitation (basically one could do anything includung killing your system without authorization. argh). This required a protocol change, so old clients are unable to connect using password-authenticitation.
  • sped up Gimp::Net considerably, by getting rid of the IO::Socket module, which required half a second(!!) to load.
  • fixed Gimp::Util::gimp_image_layertype.
  • make install checks for install directory writability and refuses to install if it isn't.
  • fixed a longstanding bug that caused (some) set_trace calls to be ignored when running under Gimp::Net.
  • added new convinience functions to Gimp::Util.
  • Gimp::Fu checks for the presence of Gtk and dies if it can't be found.
  • PF_FONT should now display a string widget in gtk+ 1.0.
  • PixelRgn/Tile data sould now be accessible again.
  • updated PDB.
  • extensive tests is now always on.
  • added examples/gimpmagick, examples/sethspin.pl, animate_cells.
  • new function Gimp::initialized that returns true whenever its safe to call gimp functins.
  • added the Gimp::Feature module, allowing for easy feature checks. See examples/gimpmagick or examples/parasite-editor for example usage.
  • added perlcc, the perl control center. Only displays log messages at the moment.
  • error and warning logging through the Perl Control Center.
  • Data::Dumper is now longer required to run the scripts, some buttons and RUN_WITH_LAST_VALS won't work, though.
  • removed POSIX dependency in examples/gimpmagick.
  • Uh, ah, debugging code in the repository, again!
