    Question Status of Gimpshop? Install on Maverick 10.10?

    Is Gimpshop still being maintained and developed? It vaguely appears to be stagnant from outward appearances. It seems like a great idea (and I have used in the past), but I am not sure it is being actively maintained. Was this project abandoned, and if so do you know why?

    I would like to install on Ubuntu Maverick 10.10 in an AMD64 situation. Is that possible? It really solves quite a few issues for people trained on Photoshop.

    True you could try to relearn with GIMP, but every time I work with the program, a lot of stuff seems like a pain in the *** way to complete a task. Gimpshop on the other hand seemed to fix a lot of that.

    That was a very interesting link. I am going to try to download GIMP 2.7.1, as it is moving in the right direction it seems.

    Still, I am curious. What happened to the Gimpshop project, and why did it stop? Was there a lawsuit, or did that guy get integrated into the GIMP project? It seems like there is a story there that would be interesting to hear.
