Whew, long time. Finally, the new stable release of GIMP has hit the streets, and I'm happy to say that the GIMPressionist is part of the package. So run, don't walk, to http://www.gimp.org/, and pick up your copy today!

As of right now, the GIMPressionist can also be found in the GIMP CVS tree, and will be maintained there primarily. However, I will do the occational release here, as well, for those of you who don't live on the bleeding edge. :-)

Yup, new version time, 0.99.5 is out. Only minor fixes and additions this time. Most notably would be the new Shadow controls. Have a look at the CHANGELOG for details. More interesting, I've had a little discussion with Sven Neumann (of the core GIMP team), and it seems that the GIMPressionist will be included in the upcoming GIMP 1.2 release. Yay! :-) This means that I will need all the bugreports you can throw at me. If there are none, this will be the 1.0 release.

Dangit! I forgot to fix some issues with config.h before releasing it.
This is fixed in 0.99.4b, available below.

Ooops! I recently discovered that a few files were missing from the tarballs. There are now in place. Sorry for the inconvenience. Also, here is a small page on how to simulate Cryptiq with the new GIMPressionist.

OK, folks, the latest release, v0.99.3, is now out. A few powerful new features; most notably colored brushes (sort of), shadows and variable-size brushes - see CHANGELOG. (These features actually gives the GIMPressionist a superset of the possibilities Cryptiq had, and the Cryptiq is therefore officially dead as a separate plug-in.) This is definately the last beta before 1.0, so please test it hard. :-)
Also, for the Gimpressionist to works you'll need a brush- and paperset. Currently only a few files are included. More will be included in the upcoming releases. (If you have a license for Micro$oft's Impressionist, you can easily convert both brushes and textures from that... I did. Yes, I do have a license!)
Some of the things I hope I'll get around to do sometime:
